    Can not be used with a laptop Asus K50IJ.

    Sisi! I assure you!

    So I can only judge the compatibility of this product: it is zero

    UTILIZATION

    GETTING STARTED

    Incompatible on a Asus K50IJ Laptop Drivers.
    Can not be used with Asio4all

    OVERALL OPINION

    M-Audio has always proved its incompetence to develop drivers.

    I do not want to change computer, the card was sold to a friend in the process. It works very well on Mac.

    I lost time (which idea to choose an m-audio me tell you)

    I bought these for 8 inputs, for maquetter drums and percussion. I use it with a laptop cpu: i5, 4 gigas ram. I also used the stage to manage sequences (Cubase, Ableton Live)

    The drivers are stable, never crashed yet. I use Cubase 5 and Ableton Live.
    I record 8 tracks simultaneously carefree and reading???? I've never been blocked read (20/30 tracks)

    - With input jacks instruments and inserts on the first 2 entries

    UTILIZATION

    This unit does not meet my specifications time sound card. Yes, because I always use Adobe Audition v1.5 invincible as multitrack audio software. Yes, I know, this software is now in version CS6 (as of January 2013) but there are two main reasons why I am hooked to this old version. First, it supports MME / WDM individually on each track in multitrack. It means that I can assign, for example, track 1 on the input - output 1 sound card, track 2 on the input and output 3 5, etc.., Which has been possible since version 3 (newer versions not tested). What happens is that since this version, Audition has abandoned support for MME / WDM benefit well on ASIO. And the kicker is that in version 3 at least, it is not possible to assign individual track such as entry and exit as ASIO, you can make these settings globally on all software. And secondly, version 1.5 weighs less than 40 MB, which is really a featherweight compared to around 240 MB version 3.0 - and it has not so many new functions. And I'm not talking about that later versions are certainly more severe. So, I still use version 1.5 with support for MME / WDM and all goes well ... until I have my hands this sound card M-Audio FastTrack Ultra 8R.

    In fact, I tried it on a Windows XP SP2 PC and another PC but Windows 8 64-bit and you will not believe your ears: MME / WDM sound card that comes with not only support the first 2 input - output card. 8 inputs - outputs are supported by the ASIO driver only. And again, routing audio to and from the computer does not pass through the internal DSP sound card! Therefore impossible (MME / WDM so) to assign incoming sound effects or 8 inputs to route audio channels 1 and 2 of the USB bus.

    So here I am "fired bullets." At first I did not believe it, I thought it was a joke! I thought it was the drivers that are incompatible with Windows XP, need a newer version of Windows. But no, it's not because the mixer comes with software drivers to work, it under XP. I even managed to drive the DSPs internal sound card from there.

    I also said that perhaps no MME / WDM driver is supplied with drivers (that only come with ASIO drivers) and, therefore, in MME / WDM, the USB driver generic audio Windows XP that is used but no, that's not it either, because otherwise he would wear, if I remember correctly, the "USB Audio" or "USB Device" instead of the name of map.

    I ended up injured because this subtlety was not mentioned anywhere in the instructions that came with that I consulted in PDF on the internet before buying. And I'm left with a device on the arms that I could possibly use as a preamp 8 channel microphone. For this point, I'm rather surprised by the good sound quality. Precision, cleanliness and discipline. Internal effects processor: a bit basic reverbs are very average. But now, buying a sound card 8 channel was more urgent to me that preamp 8 channels.

    GETTING STARTED

    Implementation quick and easy. Reliability depends heavily on the quality of the USB bus to which it is connected.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'll have to separate myself from this card, one way or another. It's a shame because the 104 dB signal - noise, this was really tempting, especially at this price point :-)))

    What I liked about this sound card:
    - Its clean and precise
    - Can operate as a standalone 8-channel preamp, among other
    - All inputs are combo XLR-Jack on the back

    What I hated about this sound card:
    - The WDM / MME driver supports only the first 2 input - output
    - Damage to the input - output 7 and 8 can not be assigned to the input - S / PDIF output for standalone mode, which would have allowed also to use as A / D converter and D / A 2ch .

    I bought this card to plug in static and dynamic mics for recording acoustic instruments sound. Not use midi.
    The card worked fine for 2 years and then dropped a track (big roar in the channel) I then phoned Music Comeback with whom I had bought the card, I was told that it was the fault of the model and the fault had bad capacitors invoice.
    Then later cracking appeared and then disappeared after restart or stop map / disconnecting / reconnecting the USB cable.
    Finally, the card gave up the ghost. It is no longer recognized by the computer. I went on Internet forums and it seems that it is a component on the USB connection that is causing the failure. This failure also seems to be......

    Finally, the card gave up the ghost. It is no longer recognized by the computer. I went on Internet forums and it seems that it is a component on the USB connection that is causing the failure. This failure also seems to be fairly common on this model. So the card is irreparable for a reasonable sum.

    UTILIZATION

    Otherwise, the card itself is very good when it works! ! !
    There is very little lag and a good bike, the eight tracks are working properly (Cubase SX)

    GETTING STARTED

    The facility is always a bit laborious with new equipment we do not know, but basically it ends quickly run the case by reading the manual!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Price / quality ratio low. Personally, do not redeem M-Audio.
    I recommend buying this FastTrack Ultra8R

    I need 8 inputs to decision-battery, which is nickel for me and saves me DSP CU. More MIDI input / output, and SPDIF.
    Used windows 7 64 bit 3GB Ram, Cubase 5.

    UTILIZATION

    8-track recording and 8 audio outputs.
    I've encountered the problem of stability before the driver Last updated!
    I already put my PC to Zero problems POCs digital that nobody came to fix (help on fofo).

    Apart from this a latency of 48kHz> 12ms (input-output) which is quite decent!

    GETTING STARTED

    VERY SIMPLE intallation! you download the driver, you throw it tell you to connect your HOP card and you can use it!
    Need the manual? NO, it's still really not complex.

    3 years of use, the only HIC for me is that I took one begins to blow, because too used ... I'm really careful, and since I'm still under warranty that the site I bought it, I'll probably try to make me change. =)

    Apart from that, it is miraculous for a budget quite correct, it begins its Home Studio with a good sound card!

    I would do much to choose from!

    in it is great that blends in my HS because it meets my specifications ... lol

    What motivated my choice, it is the large number of input / output. I use it for home recording only. For the rest of the chain: see my profile!

    The drivers have never planted to date. I use it in a variety of program and I have never had a problem! Low latency, cash it without flinching!

    Installation is simple as long as you follow the procedure.

    2 albums made with this card, great value for money.
    I stink compare it with a motu 828 mk2 the difference is not phenomenal in the motu enregistrement.Les converters may be a little better?
    Brief for more you need to type in the side of RME.
    finding a card less than 400 euros with 8 inputs and outputs over spdif,
    I find it somewhat (Mickey's dog) cool.

    If only I could have run even once, I could tell you a little more, but there ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Illico returned with a guaranteed "money back" at my favorite retailer. What amazes me is that I had traded my M-Audio ProFire against the Fast Track because of firewire chipsets compatible with my computer (HP DV7 Core2 Duo). We called M-Audio set to the shop, telling them stated that it was nowhere, except for funds from the FAQ site ... They confirmed without giving valid reasons.
    On the Fast Track Ultra 8R, I do not understand how drivers can be marketed as being unstable. I have worked with a slew of external interfaces (Digi 002, FA-66, UA25X, Motu Ultralite, etc etc), this is the first time I see a brand as unprofessional as bad with SAV. Never had problems with other brands.

    Anyway, I never will not buy the M-Audio, faith zicos! Much to pay the price ...
