Terratec Producer EWS88 MT
8 RCA input / output
An input / output SPDIF coax.
midi in out.
+ Output "system out" jack on the PCI card.

a mixer to mix the eight drivers and eight wave input and the input S / PDIF to one of the outputs. very practical, high quality when it has no table mix.

Perfect for multitrack recording.


-No installation problem.
It is sometimes necessary to pass the non-ACPI PC mode (as with a lot of pro audio card), but having said that, on my pc and I am in my ACPI AMD 800Mhz and it turns nikel.
Overall implementation is simple and effective.


Ah drivers.
I would say that was not good drivers, but since version 1.21 drivers for WDM, XP or 2000 running IMPECT ca. Terratec has made tremendous progress this the cot. nothing to do with the stability of the time VxD drivers under 98! No crash. Nickel!
So if we limit ourselves to the WDM drivers + XP is perfect. (By the way drivers for mac are in preparation and already available on the ftp site TerraTec in beta)
latency level is correct. (6ms XP has a K7 800 44khz in cubase with some VSTis)


While on board as the RME Multiface or Wami Rack offers the same thing, with drivers more "serious" and lower latency. But for twice the price!
So the price is really good and it works especially well (nothing to do with Isis!).

In short if you want a card with 8in 8OUT well made with solid Asio drivers but do not slam a 1000 euros, this is the card for you!
(We found a 350 euro at Thomann in Germany)

Terratec Producer EWS88 MT
Hello all owners or future owners of Terratec cards.

- Choosing a card is dlicat DTD if we do not want Exceeds a budjet!
- The firm has Terratec Designed an exellent product:
Map EWS88-MT. I have not failed to report acqurir qualitprix

On the case
8 in / out - 1 from noon
On the map
1 monitoring output
in / out numrique
In the map
Between the two indpendantes hard and soft (good)
- No headphone output (damage)

Personally I use 4 PC battery with:
A XP 1600 + / 80 GB / 758 M Ram dedicates audio.
2 each 12-channel consoles
Aka an old amp 2x35 watts class A 'indmodable and 25 years of life ....'
And for a cot practice Fostex DMT 8 VL
Multicore course, Tos link / Sp.Dif and invite spagetthi ..

APRS @ 5 years back I give you my conclusion on this card (in fact these three cards in three machines Embedded diffrent)

1 - AMD 1800 + / Win XP Home
2 - AMD 1600 + / Win 98 SE
3 - P 600 / Win 98 SE

The final verdict: Stabilit any evidence in any situation!

I moved a year ago to 32/32 tracks with a console numrique Tascam Dm 3200 / Firewire Mark II, recess has made the world, it is powerful, clean, friendly but food resource and audio streams!

With the Terratec is trslger, and the converter made of beautiful projects in 4 years
I use it always (drivers last days ...) for mixdown in numrique or analog via a DEQ or 24/96 with a dirth of Plugg mastrisation going well.

And with a machine that fills ddi Gigasampler hands down its function ...

This is the feedback, well, well trs!


- The quality of the converters is exellent, you can mount the chantillonage 96K which is rare for a map 8in/8out this award

The external box is beautifully made, contacts are sleeping fine gold, the connection is trs heals, the cable connecting the PCI card is sufficiently long and robust trs.

A deprecated, however, place rack house, despite his armor, because you risk of pests and sounds of various masses, gnres the electrical environment of the PC.

Note that you can pair up to 4 cards cascade or 32 channels! and the sync is OK.

The manual is a treasure hunt ....


The drivers are not the height of the product ...
especially before XP, and I XP I want to .........
- Why: too heavy for the Zique

I prfr research sharper in terms of drivers.
It is arranged with their latest version, but aa t Longuet ...
Strength, we can ddier channels in Giga sampler, and other audio, but the latency is affected ...

Software ...... the standard as everyone else ....

Compromise between converters and latency
performance suffers from a problem of AMD latency.


The VIA chipset is not really suited to audio, and must pass the bar of XP-1600, 512 MB RAM minimum, to reach record without clicking and other hassles.

I must say the discharge to the card it does not possde Intgr DSP and quil is difficult to ask for more pout a product in this CATEGORY.

If you want to run this product on top, you will need to invest Intel PIII 1GHz or 2GHz P4 (P4 tell you!) Proc and chip in, not what nimporte motherboard, if you know what I mean!

- Although Settings, without TSR under the Billou racketeur and magic window 98 2nd Edition, you can go to native mode 4 ms without PRBS
- Do you have a QDI ..... :
With particular care paramtrer latency slot of the motherboard in the bios, 32

- The number of track, 8 20.


APRS two years of loyal service, despite several maj risky drivers.

Here is the test without a user polmique relatively happy, which is considering a 2nd acqurir EWS MT88 for a report 16in/16out qualitprix done everything correct.

- What I like most is the quality of converters and then 24/96 ....
- The least: The distribution policy of the manufacturer, and its lack of rgularit for drivers, which are the nerve center of the product, hello dpressions.
- At their discharge to and honor (Terratec Germany):
THE FIRST Reue MT: prb sound on left channel monitoring, clicks rptitifs all-round ...
that have emerged gradually ... rus I have to keep working and

They've changed the gear 11 months against the nine APRS and express (good)

Besides it's a beautiful production heals, and that price ,,,,,, you have nothing holding the road, then?

- Next APRS purchase the 2nd MT88, guess what .... the pulsar in the course Creamware.

- I possde also other brands of sound cards.
- If you have questions complmentaires or comments, Do not hesitate to contact me.

- As dsign music I play both music composition, the post-production, the choice of recording gear, especially embedded in a PC, for a novice requires the ease of a course of -20 fighter by

- And the manufacturers, distributors aids are made by a malicious pleasure to bring to bare their lack of bb bowl, rt is sometimes stuck ....

In parallle, I do consulting and training computer music.

APRS @ 5 years back I give you my conclusion on this card (in fact these three cards in three machines Embedded diffrent)

The drivers have become over time trs reliable, no dfaillance found with machines that run 10 hours a day!

The converters have no envy more sophisticated maps.

The report quality price unbeatable opportunity is great, I insist, and I have no commercial tie whatsoever with that.

Terratec Producer EWS88 MT
It is true that this card is very good for music.
The only problem is motherboards for AMD, of course!
If you make music, do like me, buy any Intel (motherboard + processor).
This Saturday, May 11, I had to buy a set for Intel it works without problem.

What is also annoying, it is entered: while RCA is not great, it would have been better jacks!


We'll provide a picture of incompatibilities:

Motherboards based on VIA chipset, SIS and ALI NForce.
The AMD chipset is better supported but not yet mature, because all motherboards opting for this chipset also have a VIA chipset as a southbridge, which is annoying!

If you think about it, there are only Intel.


Ah, drivers!

Sorry to say this, but the drivers are (forgive me the term employee) rotten!
The updates are almost obsolete.
Apparently, one could run 4 cards together, which is given but questions the drivers are not very stable, I do not see too much interest!


We will not spit in the soup, it's still a pretty good card when it works.

For my part, is what I wanted to buy. I called from the manufacturer, I have strongly discouraged because they had too many problems.
For roughly the same price, I buy a INCA88 and MIDITRACK2120 (MIDI daughter card) Brand Audiotrack - Egosys (support from Egosys). Very good card but it is similar, Intel takes everywhere!

Anyway, if you want to do it, better buy something that has always been consistent (INTEL) rather than buy AMD and back 15 times to customer service.

MIDI Setup:

Celeron 1 GHz or more (for mainly synths)
256 MB SDRAM PC133
ABIT or ASUS motherboard (premium quality) + Intel oblige!
Hard Disk ATA 100 GB 7200 20-30, it's enough.

+ Audio MIDI Setup:

Minimum PIII 900 Mhz (P4 is better, but more expensive)
256 MB SDRAM (If you buy a P4, take the Rambus)
ABIT motherboard ASUS or Intel chipset +
2 SCSI hard drives: a 9 GB for the system and the MIDI example + a 18 or 36 GB for recording audio.
That is what, if not check out this page, it is the importer and french for Terratec Audiotrack


(For cons do not rely on specific chipset, AC only works with the Intel!)
And if you have a machine and you still want to play games or others from time to time, do like me, buy a rack (a system on an internal hard drive and system on the rack). So if you want to play a game or go on the net, you just have to remove the rack, which comes much cheaper than having 2 computers!
