Test for the firewire version (not referenced on AudioFanzine to date)
basic but varied connections:
Balanced XLR microphone (switchable phantom power supply)
mono guitar - bass
3.5mm stereo line
2 symmetrical line jack 1 / 4 "
2 stereo headphones (3.5 & 6.35 mm)
24bits/192 khz. S / N ratio 100.5dB
pots for all I / O
size 5 1 / 4 ", fits into a PC (even if not for the cause)
No MIDI I / O or digital
Big +: also works as preamp with no pc!
Use voice recording, bass & scratching at home. Sometimes repeats linked to a mixing desk.
Used with preamp modeling, an sm57, sm58 1, various audio sources. Spring of two m-audio active monitoring bx8-a & Sennheiser HD 200.
Installing XP nickel. Cd drivers needed for FW, unlike the USB version.
Everything works the hair with my equipment (sequencers, multimedia software, TV tuner, games, etc. ...
Configuration software Spartan (config asio basic, and sampling rate)
full manual (it's not hard to be said, we are not dealing with an A380). but in English only.
no update yet.
10ms latency for the moment, but I have not pushed or tried to set the hair.
Purchased 5 months ago
pots that seem a little cheap
no digital I / O
mic preamp that lack of energy, and a little definition
adjusting volume common to both headphones
interface windows worse than Spartan
operates stand alone without pc
really cheap, with a proper quality for the price.
value for q / p
well recognized by my software (audio and multimedia)
it's really not much wind, I not expect that at that price ...
I would do the same choice, because I have at present no need for digital I / O connector or more complete.
