I intended to use a sound card with a lot of external 1: Free tracks on my mixer in live (in addition to a prmixage thanks to potentiomtres upstream of the table mixing). 2: record in home studio or "nomad" with pramplis of quality. 7n400Pro2 Gigabyte motherboard (nvidia chipset), Athlon XP2600 + processor, 1 GB DDR RAM 2700, a 120 GB Seagate hard drive and another 40GB Western Digital.
As part of the live I use two audio inputs (XLR) outputs for the effects processor VampPro and two MIDI ports to change when ncessaire from the pc config Vamp. To exit I use both audio jack ports as symtriques j'insre in both analog in the Mia noon.
As part of the record "nomadic" I use absolutely all the entries and I noted the excellent performance of pramplis ansi the usefulness of-10db pad and power supply fantme .

UTILIZATION

Well, installation is simple, despite a history homrique (re pr Asian-driver). Since the appearance of asio drivers on the manufacturer's website incompatibilities are gone and I can use in my case Omga with an internal card in the PC MiaMIDI while mixing with Cubase SX2.
Gnrale configuration, with respect to the PC, not a ncessite lgre complication namely disable the Mac drivers and activate the windows drivers in the panel "management priph AMERICAS / avancquot; of windows.
The manual is well documented on the manufacturer's website you can find a variety of configurations depending on the interface squenceur uses.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are "finally" stable. The last update is trsrcente, met with the manufacturer to stabilize the asio problem with windows. I use Cubase SX2, Reason 2.5 Live3, Acid 4.0.
Latency somewhat dcevante (80 90 ms) offset by the fat that I am using an internal sound card Echo MiaMIDI to exit the PC to an analogue desk. So, by not serving me as the OMGA I take to record the quality of Lexicon hardware while bnficiant the quick calculation of Mia. Given my config 'pc say that I can get a number of tracks 16 noon (VST plug ins) and 32 audio tracks.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it daily for a month. I like the quality of the hardware, we feel that the manufacturer is a professional in the contents (a sound like a toy like others). The USB1.1 connection seems low compared to the Firewire, but cel may justify the reasonable price of the card.
I tried 6 diffrent sound cards (in the studio and home studio) with prestigious (Motu, Digidesign) and frankly it has not ashamed of its performance.
Submitted A problem that the driver is set I would do probably the choice.
