M-Audio Delta 44
This is a perfect map quiconvient my expectations: good converters, 4 inputs, 4 outputs on ¼ 6.35, all there! Used with a PIII 950MHz overclock 600, an Asus motherboard VIA chipset, 768MB of RAM and an IDE HDD, it works well for trs Cubase and Reason. The latency is imperceptible change much for me on my ISIS. The Vsti I use are controlled by a keyboard matre evolution 249C, connected by USB to the PC; two advantages: no control of power supply, and then not need to take MIDI! (A good falls, the Delta44 possde do not). Then for audio I use a small console or pramp Envoice connected to the Delta.


No problem with installation, make sure all of the same download any latest drivers to take advantage of new features. I've never had a problem with my Via chipset.


This time, thank you M-Audio drivers are set days and bring new features (multiclient). Logic or Cubase with a flawless run, I get a latency of 4 ms. However, it must sometimes increase or decrease the number of sample in the dashboard to avoid cracks in the intensive use (20 audio + vsti read in real time). No problem either to record 4 track at the same time. I recently branch two delta 44 in my PC: no problem, recording 8 tracks at the same time is a rgal of stability and simplicity.


With a budget trsrduit, I had to replace my Isis, Vsti to use properly: The Delta44 seemed the best qualitprix, 285 Euros, I could not esprer better (cheaper than my Isis !).
This card arpondu my expectations: quality audio to the appointment, 24bits/96Khz (a food in the place, but of course!), Stability of drivers in practice, evolution can by buying multiple cards. It's been three years and hundreds of hours of recording that I bought.
I have advised several friends, all are rev happy and I will make ending for knowledge with 4 cards at the same time.
Certainly have.

4 inputs, 4 outputs, this is a small sound card following rpond perfectly my needs for a price that is affordable.
The uses range from the Home Studio with Cubase SX and assist night in with Tractor DJ from Native Instruments. For the Home Studio, especially c'tait entries that m'interressaient then taient plutt 4 outputs for accessories (By the way I would have AIM 6 outputs).
It runs on a P4 2.4Ghz with ASUSP4PE, 1024MB DDRAM, 80GB hard drive with 8MB cache 7200tr.
It connects a small table Behringer MX1804X and all conections are 6.35 symtriques jack.


You know the Plug And Play? Ben is the same, you connect, you turn on the PC, you install the driver's fingers in the nose and you're done!
I had no incompatibility with the card, everything works perfectly.
Gnrale configuration is very simple to use with a clear interface.
I have not had need to read the manual.


The drivers are trs stable, no crashes for almost a year of use.
They are not used often, but what good days as given that there is nothing to correct.
The software I use most often with this card are Cubase SX and Traktor.
Climbing with a Traktor frquence of chantillonage of 88,000 Hz, my latency is 0!
The act of running the 8 ports simultaneously does not seem Drang.


I use it since March 2003.
I like the quality of the converters of this card: it's great art., What I repproche? May be the rigor to the impossibility of any routing you want with: let me explain. It is possible to configure the two outputs of several Stereo Manir: either outputs 1 and 2 = between 1 and 2 and similarly for 3 and 4, the output is nothing do with the entries. Can be t would he nice to have more choice. But yrflchissent a little, what good is not used ca ...
I have not really had the opportunity to EESI for other models but I have a friend who possde a Hontech 8 in / 8 out and he often having their Pantages card and again, the drivers for the card to Cubase SX 2.0 tojours are not out when I have not even felt the need to update my drivers myself.
The quality-price ratio is exlent I think, hard to beat!
With the exprience, I would do without this choice Sitat

The four I / O interested me and I could not afford to take the era delta66 (with I / O numrique).

I mainly use the delta44 for some plug ins, AudioMulch.

It works just as well in 2000, Linux (with alsa drivers).

My config: PIII800 on CUSL2 with 256 MB of RAM.


Installation is no problem for me under Windows. The drivers are stable and long Fully functional (one and a half).

the pannel of rglage is simple to configure, and latency can drop qqs ms without problem as long as the CPU follows.

I never need the manual


The ASIO drivers are not updated day long, but it is not ncessaire, as they are fully developed.

I test Nuendo in a hundred tracks in playback with EQ, without loss of sync. (But not I use Nuendo).

A 44.1 khz, 16 bit, I latency honnte trs, which I do not impede, for well-made soft drinks.


With the exprience, I would do this choice, I think. In this price range, there are not many other models with the same quivlanets fonticnnalits, and especially the same quality of sound / operation.

Converters of very good quality considering the price, good dynamics, thank you delta


Then it is as usual, we cross that it will work right away, and no, like all sound cards, it is a little battles with the IRQ settings of the buffers etc ... but good c is not dramatic, over the gents in the delta are used to problems and have detailed files ready you will be very useful if you are not accustomed to this kind of manipulation ....


For drivers it is very bizzard, it works perfectly on 2000 and XP, for cons for users of 98 or I will consider using the latest drivers DEL2227.EXE that they are more stable and have better latency.


It's been 3 days I use it, and I am very satisfied with me in 98 I turn 32 vst instruments vst with 6, 40 audio tracks read with a lot of plug and 4-track recording and multi those with a P4 1.5 Mhz. But be careful to perform these feats must still optimize 98, with a little adjustment easily double the performance of his machine .... In conclusion, very good map, I think to be supplemented by the purchase of a case and a delta 66 omni i / o

M-Audio Delta 44
Many drivers and many facts have motivated my choice and the convertisseurs.J 'uses this map to my home studio.Ma config is a 1GHz Duron with a motherboard MSI K7T Turbo2 and 256 MB SDRAM 133MHz 20GB IDE HDD 7200 RPM min with Windows 2000


Installation is no problem (no need to reboot Win2000). Configuration is very simple to do and the explanations are clear and precise.


The drivers are pretty stable but there are still some crashes, it is nevertheless a powerful machine (Athlon XP or P4 min) for the drive without soucis.Les drivers are often made jour.Avec latency 9 ms things in place or VSTi effets.Je have yet to record multiple tracks at once but I happen to have 60 tracks read without crashing.


I use it for 6 months and I love it for its stability even with the bus VIA KT133 it works I totally have tried the Terratec and Audiowerk8?. The quality / price is very correct and if you want to use Cubase or Nuendo Midiman (subsidiary of Steinberg) made this card for you.
