    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 €).

    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.

    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.

    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.
    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.

    To play the audio tracks ss 24 bp with several dozen vst effects.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I utitlise for 1 year and a half and I have not encountered any particular bp, including the background noise are talking about some testers.
    We can win the ds of the laptop bag, a headphone and you can tweak on the train, make a mix in one night ...
    I had one before in 24 wamirack PCI card with a desktop PC and I had that with bp. The sound quality of the AU 20 is at least as good and stability of the UA20 is irrprochable.
    If we want to catch top-level acoustic or record multiple audio sources at the same time we must look elsewhere, but Obviously the price is not the same!
    The quality-price ratio is really good. I would do bp ss this choice or perhaps U224 tascam for faders, but it is less portable.

    By installing the new MME and ASIO drivers, I can tell the location or Systm I decompress a. Dat. Not rocket science but can dboussoler someone who is not accustomed.
    It happened to me a game (on a CD ROM for children) refused to use peripherals like the UA20 and I had to use the chip to the motherboard.
    Apart from a, hopefully even if the nuance between the two drivers is not really explicit in the manual trs.

    GETTING STARTED

    One maj of drivers I know.
    latency of 13 ms
    Plugin for cubase lovers end up on the mule loaded ... but so far no game over.
    It is plastic but the buttons are well rsist.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Not want to change for now ... if not equivalent in terms of size. A mix between more with two to play and can be a little more dynamic and sound DEFINITIONS.
    I just saw that the UA20 (new enhanced version Dolby 5.1 I think) is around 150 dsormais.
    If I divide the price by the number of hours I spent with, made cheap minute of happiness!

    Complete map with analog I (normal), but also MIDI I / O, and headphone output and digital output (damage, there's no digital input).
    3 levels of impedance recording (6.35) for guitar, microphone and line.
    It's great to be USB powered, it makes the map very mobile and it avoids even carry around a wire ... pleasant even in sedentary use.
    It runs on a P IV, 2.4 GHz, 512 RAM, Win XP.
    Use of listening, mixing and mastering mainly, with some recording troubleshooting.

    Panel very simple (too?).

    GETTING STARTED

    In terms of drivers, they have been updated at least once, and it runs without too many problems. They are stable. I note however that as soon as Windows merdouille a little (like at startup, it happens sometimes), I'm sure having to re-install the card, drivers, etc.. Fortunately, the drivers are nice and warm on the drive and the procedure is rather fast, but hey, this requires one or two reboots. Painful. Otherwise, no cuts, no crash of the card. You should not ask him too much. It's USB but it's not a mouse or a key SUB.
    Note that she hates games, stuff like cars;). In this case, it is better to disable it and use the integrated sound chipset. Otherwise, return to the previous chapter, installation etc ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Use for 10 months. It changes the chipset and an Aureon Fun (yet it is not funny).
    150 euro bought used, now it's even less.
    I'm running 18 tracks of audio studio with reading qq effects, no problems.
    Very good value for money ... but this is not a pro card to record very sharp. Anyway, being powered by USB, the level of background noise is high enough (-60 dB) and as stated by some means even when the mouse moves. But hey, what an idea to move a mouse when recording?
    It is convenient because independent and comprehensive ... except the digital input

    UTILIZATION

    The implementation of ASIO drivers with silent enough bordlique THE FIRST version of the drivers (supplied Surla CD), but version 2 drivers, available on the website of Edirol, rsout the problem.
    I have taken the time (for once) to read the manual. We see that possde Edirol in it especially fans of his plutt than computers, but the pilots' s install without much problem by following the instructions.

    GETTING STARTED

    I 've never had any problem with the drivers of the card, except may be to uninstall (I' d squat another PC, and drivers are always on, for want of being able to remove ...). I didn 't bother, since the vetrsion 2 pilots, to go see if a silent version available.
    On Plogue Thing, I have 4 ms latency and 13 ms output in between. It is more than enough to play with a MIDI keyboard, even more than the latency of the MIDI port is not standard either.
    In CANCEIS mixing, I have no problem reading dj 24 simultanment tracks, but that is the processor and not the sound card that s' takes you to mix tracks in real time . It is therefore dpendant the power of it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it recently prs a year now. I needed a good sound card too small CHRE, and that it has fully achieved its rle. However, with means a little more important now I think I Rasht MODEL plutt the AU 25, also having XLR inputs, and better frquence of chantillonage.

    I record the vocals, guitars, aco, low BAR.

    UTILIZATION

    The installation and implementation is no problem provided we know a minimum ouindose environment.

    GETTING STARTED

    No worries notable drivers. It works with Cubase SX without worry.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This device is a good product if you do not need more input ...
    Using a mixer via seems essential for four reasons:
    direct input via microphone in jack and guitar is freezing, you get a much more musical preamps using the mixer.
    The mixer avoids incessant disconnects connections-that threaten the life of the connectors of the interface.
    In addition, the interface has no phantom power supply (must not ask either).
    But above the headphone output is not used in 3.5, the background noise is unbearable, you must board through the table to "monitor."

    I have no point of comparison, but for my own use, the interface for me, it is complete. It is always useful configuration "nomadic", even if I switch to a fixed config with more entries.
