(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.
