« A good map, drivers of m *** e »Published on 09/22/09 at 04:35
- The installation is done it without problems? Few problems when I moved in with a friend, no problem under Windows XP at the beginning, however, requires that you install the drivers when the card is plugged in and turned. - Have you encountered incompatibilities? No inconsistency found with the mode WDM, ASIO drivers by running against the very evil in Live, WaveLab, energyXT (incessant crackle even increasing the latency in an exaggerated manner) ... - The general configuration is easy? Very easy, nothing to do but set the recording levels. - The manual is clear and sufficient? ... The manual is not necessary.
- The drivers are stable? Stables yes, but slow and rotten. They cause cracking or random saturation ASIO mode, even with a very large buffer size. - Are they often updated? Never and that's the problem. MAC drivers seem to be less buggy than those available for Windows but begin to age and are compiled for a PowerPC architecture, if I remember correctly - What software do you use most often? EnergyXT, Live and Audacity - What you get lag? About 8 ms when the card is in great shape.
- What is so special that you like most and least? The ease of setting standards and monitoring live that can be used in conjunction with the playback, which allows you to 'mix' the return of a expander with the audio stream without using a table, I like also the 'ground lift' that allowed me to solve many problems with my laptop. The supplied software bundle is rotten, as demos versions or very limited in their use. It should also turn on the PC for the monitoring works. In WDM mode, no recording capability. - How do you price / quality ratio? The value for money sucks because the drivers are bad, I bought it anyway € 100 new. - With experience, you do again this choice? ... Not because of the incessant crackling that makes the card almost unusable in Windows XP.
