It's very portable, self-powered via USB (we do not step to carry around 25,000 connections). Box a little cheap ... but hey plastok in the coup is very light.
I bought it to make models of compositions in Cubase.
Config: Athlon desktop PC or laptop P4 1.8 billion.
I branch out to:
- VAMP2
- Marshall JMP1 (used with simulations of HP)
- Yamaha Arranger Keyboard
- Table with mix amp.
Please note the price for the Midi interface.

UTILIZATION

No problem, plug in, turn on the CD and shoo.
If it is known to install a driver of course.

With no latency direct monitoring if not go through the sequencer, I do not know yet but the drivers ASIO2 should provide a minimum latency.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it this weekend and my first attempts are successful registration:
Very good sound reproduction.
My use is perhaps ATIP (I record the tracks one by one) so I do not really push the card into its retrench but it looks really good for the price (250 €).
To see time in use in Cubase or other ...

While 1: + Midi Audionumrique

The USB allows you to share the card between my desktop PC (Athlon XP1800 + Gigabyte KT333 CM) and my laptop (Asustek Athlon 1400 + Chipset SIS 730). Both with Win XP.

The TOC is plastic but at least it's lightweight ...

UTILIZATION

No problem of implementation, except with the WDM drivers in Sonar 2.0 and 1. If I use the WDM drivers, I have a dcalage. I wait to test Sonar 2.2 and ASIO drivers.

GETTING STARTED

J'emmne the card and the laptop to play samples of instruments with a MIDI controller scne: and it works no worries. I use Virtualsampler 3 (I can not run the ASIO version 2.75)

I know me too problem of background noise. This is probably the power from the USB bus must be poorly insulated. Indeed, I hear (by pushing the gain for the bottom, it is true) dplacements the sound of my optical mouse on USB port! The most obvious is with my laptop: the extinction of the LCD screen lowers the background noise of at least 6 dB!
Uhmmm ... not easy then to see something ;-)

For now I use "gates", but I will soon be testing on my laptop with a Belkin USB 2.0 PCMCIA card that has an external power supply ... to follow!

Otherwise, the level of care: I'm surprised by the saturation who do not forgive! In this aspect DPIT dlicat, raliss records are excellent. Portable Recorder + UA20 = numrique Cheap!

OVERALL OPINION

APRS 6 months of use:

Excellent quality price.
Work with my VIA KT333 chipset.
Shame about the noise.
Attention to the level of, and risk of saturation.

I look srieusement the cot of the M-Audio Firewire!!

USB Sound Card format, 2 different drivers, one for windows in standard mode, one for Asio

standard, the sound quality 16/44.1 in advanced audio 24/44.1 is impossible to change this given in the config panel or otherwise, no 20-bit instance.

in advanced mode, no latency with Cubase and VST are played in real time, the headphone output for monitoring is perfect, but I go directly through a mini mixer for a good return.

for the config, better a good USB model and last at least 1ghz power if you have a VIA chipset.

to input this extremely simple, input jack 6.35 2, 2 RCA output, a headphone output for monitoring, no frills card is in the simplest and most convenient.

to input this extremely simple, input jack 6.35 2, 2 RCA output, a headphone output for monitoring, no frills card is in the simplest and most convenient.
the input jack can be used as input line, guitar and microphone, handy if there is no mixer is handy, or you want your guitar recorded a holiday night on his laptop.

I have found a flaw sync pdt but I run the test program over the other adsl. recess so it does not help.

I would advise anyone who is creating an XP partition to install a special windows with Cubase software or audio to be quiet.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple but a bit special, choose the driver to install, WDM or MME, then the Advanced button to driver on or off.

to switch to another driver, if necessary, we must act on the button and unplug the USB plug for the puir to recognize with any drivers.

reported appears sound volume can not be modified in Asio mode.

GETTING STARTED

The driver has not yet been updated apparemen but it works just fine

for software I use most often Cubase 5.1 I can not make me a SX, and I get an 18ms latency, we can not change, but note that this latency seems to be that of a Zero we play a VST in real time.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it recently but I am already very happy being an amateur I do not have sound cards too complex or too expensive to me a little put off, and the possibility to put it on a laptop attracts as well.

The menu is simple and I appreciate why, no need for 46 / O, especially since most of the time I do uses only.

A very good value for money and few default for people who want only the basics and not often offered supperflu other cards.
