Audiofanzine FR's review

E-MU 0202 USB
(Originally written by frankk/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Two 1/4" jack inputs, and USB.

No Spdif, etc.

No Midi in/out... it's a pity.


It takes only 10 minutes to install.


I use two tracks at a time plus some plug-ins.

The driver is not very reliable. I set the latency at 10 because the sound is altered with lower values! If

you set it to two, you'll notice frequency losses, etc.

The software bundle contains only limited versions so it's useless.

The preamp and converters sound only ok. It's a pity.


One month of use

Pros: power supply via USB.

Cons: Average preamp sound.

Not very stable like all Emu Creatives I've tested.

Useless software bundle.

Latency time too high.

I wouldn't buy it again.

I'm happy I replaced it after testing a 0202 and a 1212...

both of which sound no better and are even less stable.

That's the reason I bought an M-Audio and an Edirol.

They work seamlessly with my different PCs, and their drivers are reliable.

They sound much better and the latency time is not audible.

- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
Uh, nothing special, may be fairly comprehensive to begin, direct monitoring. The primary endpoint was the price, but it is not technical ...

- For what purpose?
Listen, Music, VSTS only, but sometimes guitar galley ...

- What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
- Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz, 4GB DDR2 RAM, Hard 5400 rev / min

- Which instruments and systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you use it and how connections? ...
Nothing at all ... I also regret the fact that no connection washables midi ...


- The installation is done it without problems?
Say yes, but I had a previous config of huge problems with ASIO drivers, I could not decendre below 200ms latency ... mmx same drivers worked better ...

- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
Yes recently with xp via bootcamp ...

- The general configuration is easy?
Yes, almost nothing to configure

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Not read


- The drivers are stable?
At each launch of Live, I played the map 3sec crash, I had to restart it, then more problems ... Now under XP via bootcamp on mac, sound crash constantly, every 3 sec, though I restarted the map, that does not solve the problem

- Are they often updated?
Almost never ... E-mu support takes a week to answer, and often with stupid questions as I had often already answered these questions in my first shipment ... Genre: "I turn on XP machine machine, my card has such a problem and as long latency" response: under what system you are? How you get lag?

- What software do you use most often?
Live with a lot of VSTS / effects

- What you get lag?
In "good day", 10ms with 5 instruments not consume the masses ... Beyond I spend 15 to be quiet. For large sets, spin rapidly by ca ... my card has planted countless times, in those moments, 40ms to be quiet ...

- How many tracks you get to record / play time? ...
According to the latency hardware chosen based on the resources used: 10ms at 40!


- How long have you use it?
Since a year and a half, it is now burned, I give my opinion here for the discouraged at all costs ...

- What is so special that you like most and least?
+: Direct Monitoring
-: No MIDI connections, card not very stable

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, unfortunately

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Bad, even with such a small price ... I had the galleys endless with this card ...

Between 2 jack, and USB.
no spdif ect ...
damage no midi in out


Installation 10 minutes.


I use two tracks simultaneously and plugs qq
trs drivers not stable, I've let the latency below 10 because the sound s'altre! if
2 you lose you go down low acute ect.
the bundle of software version limits not useful.

grapefruit and a fair bit converter, it's a shame.


1 month of use
the +: auto feed by usb.

the -: preamp a bit tight.
not very stable as all creative essaybr emu /> bundle software useless.
too much latency
I do not would do the same choice.
I am glad to have tried chang APRS 0202 and 1212
that is not his best at the plant and more.

I also bought a MAUDIO and edirol
for my pc and it works without problem driver no prob
the sound is much better and does not include the latency.

E-MU 0202 USB
I use it just for listening and an input for recording my voice!


Quick and no problem!
the manual is clear!


At the moment there is no update of drivers!!
I am listening to a single track at the same time I save!


I use it for two days and I have a problem with!
with a preamp lunnar tp -01 I use for my mic and I connected directly to the entrance of the emu have a lot of breath!
and when I mounted the volume of entries almost at max there are a lot of noise and breath!
I do not know if this is normal or not?
in all cases with this defect it does not help me and counting the preamp is 270 euros which are useless (and not I count not the microphone!)
decus ..... so I'm hoping to find a solution to these problems ....
