I just bought this sound card to get into the 100% virtual and hard sell my hardware (synthexpander).
I chose it for its price, drivers for ASIO 2.0, and for the incredibly low latency (<3ms to 44.1)
My laptop is a small
Celeron 1.8 Ghz
4200 30 GB hard turns
768 DDR RAM
15.1 "
Windows XP Home with all the patches

UTILIZATION

Installation without any pb using the latest drivers caught in the net.
No pb of compatibility.
I looked for 10 minutes in Cubase SL to choose the right paramtres and get the lowest latency possible.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are very stable under XP with Cubase.
The sound is amazing, no breath, redcouverts treble, deep bass ...
Latency is almost non-existent on my little config:

Cubase SL, I'm running without any worries VSTi 10, 2 audio tracks, Thurs + rel time via MIDI keyboard!

My little slowed down, a little Celeron PC (clicks) when I hold an audio track (record) with 5 VSTi greedy, but that's normal ...

I wait to test it with that I'll buy Atmosphere ending for ...

For cons I fear for the small connector (gold plated mini jack): we will use.

Little trouble in my XP: my laptop does not boot if the card is plugged in, but comes from my PC.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three days, I just test the bottom, and I really urge anyone who wants to play virtual instruments.
I test before external USB cards, and although there's no pictures!

Wonderful product ECHO run to buy!

Update: I upgrade my laptop 768 MB RAM, for use with Atmosphre: genial!
