Edirol UA-25
Usage: audio timing system (Smaart live)


Plug and play


No soft bp


I decided to invest a year ago in a card with XLR inputs with 48v power supply, to calibrate the audio systems on Smaart Live festival. To my regret the electronic characteristics were not there yourself. This card sulfur from a serious design problem of the internal 5V supply that is made around a switching system, generating a noise on the analog outputs on XLR and greatly exceed 106dB S / N announced by the datasheet. This noise and all the more important when food 48v triggers. The linearity is not the appointment of inputs (measured + / -2 dB from 30 to 550Hz) unacceptable for the acquisition card for audio.
I do not use more and do not think selling either, so I bought one of the uac202 behringer and the measurements are very satisfactory. No breath and amplitude curves in / out are straight. The only downside are RCA inputs and there is no 48v, a small preamp will do the trick.

Good research

config facil

etr enough clear manual


- The drivers are stable?
stable drivers

- Are they often updated?
not often

What software do you use most often?
cubase sx, ableton

- What you get lag?
no latency or mini


I use it for 1 year

most: pocket format, with phantom power 2 entries

not least since it emits a blast in my monitors as well as Min or crackling, but annoying to work seriously, this does not mean of course they will do it all! may be problem with the usb

price / quality ratio right

I do not do it again over the choice I orient myself to a more firewire

MIDI, no XLR, 24bit 96khz sample rate, output jack or RCA (practice), its simple and convenient card priori ...


So I've had drivers galleys repeatedly but in fact I especially think we imprativement know one thing: put the advance mode ON if you are on windows !!! This small Dtail obliged me pull me many times the hair, and sometimes threw me in the shit in live performance ...

Apart from this, since it works without fuss, I can dbrancher / reconnect easily, windows finds her alone.


I never managed to record with. It is a mystery and frankly a damn m'enerve. I have tried EVERYTHING. So I recorded with my internal sound card ....

Level latency me a acceptable air but do not over rely on for processing live ...

It seems to record a stro track (so TFW 2 mono tracks) but hey, since in 3 years I have not managed to save it with ...

Noon is 100% OK.


So did three years, and I do not know when appeared a constant grsillement damn !!!! It's amazing and only if the card is for the branch grsillement blast appears in the mix table. It is quite small but for me it is good for the Introduced trash.

Maybe it's due to the fact that I have often carries (rather good deals yet it solid but good air ..). In short unreliable.
IN CONCLUSION: A low-end card my taste. An interesting prices and good sound but its reliability leaves completely be desired. 3 years after I was obliged to change it. I have a friend who has the same and which has also galleys. In my opinion, it is better to invest in something beefier, it's more economical ...

I bought this card and I really homestudio following deu! It did not work six months and presto, you can not reinstall the drivers.Je have returned to the Service of homestudio, After a few weeks they return to me telling me that the problem was solved t. All content, I branch, but she walks out with parasites. When I push the sound, before arriving in the middle, parasites etoufent sound. I sent back homestudio and I wait.

My config:
P4 3.0GHz, 3GB RAM 120GB internal HDD, 500GB External
Motherboard ASUS P4 S800D


In the early going APRS beuguait intallation.


The drivers of the card do not support plugins WAVES Steinberg.


I just used it because I had another card that went into the silent bien.Elle reserve.Heureusement I had another or I would die.
With what I experienced, I can not buy a product EDIROL's over.

I just need 2 inputs with phantom power. and the rest also suited me perfectly.


No problem


No problem except for a few months. became a buzz, more and more insistent. it happened out of warranty, my card is now useless given the breath. I am underwhelmed by the USB ...


2 years but the huge blast appeared after a year and a half. my next card will be firewire.

Edirol UA-25
I bought it for its convenience and the fact qu'Edirol is a sub-brand of Roland.
I use it on my pc fixed and especially with my laptop to be mobile to make the recording.

I used it in every possible configuration (direct, DI, unwanted, using the preamp in console output ...)


I had no desire to install on every PC on which I could install it.

For the manual I did not have to use it when you know what type of sound card operation is obvious.


The drivers are stable usually I did not have to worry

For the latency was 14 ms with the basic setup. We can bring it down by changing the audio buffer size but beware of cracking read.

I use it mainly with cubase VST32


I use it for two years.
Despite its convenience this card is a gas plant!
By supplying usb there is interference on the outputs and inputs. The headphones also ....
The preamp send a blast unacceptable when the gain is increased to more than half (and I'm nice ...)
The preamp sounds and colors notament the return of low frequency.
The momentum is definitely not respected!!
Caution should consider purchasing it knowingly ... At that price it is rare to get something decent. That's why I put one and not zero.

I was forced by financial problems to fall back on this model and I regret every time I record ...

If you must purchase act knowingly ... If you have no concern for budget, will see more brands such as rm ....
