M-Audio Fast Track MKII
Entered XLR with 48V power supply line and instrument input plus the direct monitoring switch, what more for a solo project?

I use it with Live and Axiom25, I record primarily to micro, all kinds of stuff, all with the following config:

Asus M4A97
Phenom x4 BE 960T
Gigabyte Geforce Ti 560
4GB GSkill 1333 CAS 8
Corsair Perf. 3 Series 128 GB

Ultimate 64-bit Windows Cevennes.

UTILIZATION

Extremely stable drivers, found at the site builder (from XP to 7 64-bit, all are there, as well as all mac OS).
I use Ableton Live, which recognizes the trick immediately.
Live it off to watch a movie on VLC? Swith ASIO to WDM with a wink.
Small test with VST greedy, small does not crack, but the processor is good for a lot too.
I get 5ms latency, the same for all systems ASIO I knew.
Against this Part is limited to the 24-bits/48kHz for esgourdes sensitive, maybe it's not enough. For me? It is widely.

GETTING STARTED

Plug and play setup, but the ASIO you will first find the drivers on the site builder (in the blink of an eye do not worry) if you are on Windows Seven.
No general config to do, this card is minimalist at will.
The manual? I did not look so it is easy to use.
At the present time the system is perfectly stable.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since last night. I updaterai if I ever have conflicts, but I doubt it.
I got a Phase 26 USB, an Edirol FA 66 and I tested a USB Presonus compete with it.

I chose it for the price of course. But if you want a sound that resembles the sound pro, still put the thirty euros in addition to the Presonus whose convertos have very good reputation.

M-Audio Fast Track MKII
What characteristics have motivated your choice?
-------------------------------------------------- -
I had an MBox first version. These jackals pustular Digidesign is stopped providing drivers for Mac OSX Lion, I needed a replacement that does not cost a fortune, I fell in the classifieds of AF on a new but secondhand copies (never used)

What instruments or systems (console, preamp, DtDs ...) the use and how you connect? ...
-------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------
For reasons of space I had to turn the amps, so I use my home with monMac, GarageBand and some simulation components (this is good). The Strato Mexican and Mexican Jazz bass ditto plugged into the guitar input on the Fast Track. A few voices (voice-over video editing) with the mic. Why the phantom power supply is fine.

I took his point to not look like a fayot and because there is no entry noon.

UTILIZATION

The drivers are stable?
------------------------
I know it worked the first time, even before I installed the M-Audio driver, the Mac already recognized the boiboite (good omen that ..)

What software do you use most often?
--------------------------------------
Garageband, Audacity, Reaper, Live

What you get lag?
------------------------
I do not know or rather there is none. I scrape it plays, live, without delay

GETTING STARTED

No problem, I have not looked at the manual.

Ah if only one problem at the beginning (Because I am con) is that I forgot to said track 2 (guitar) at Garageband so initially I had no sound ....

In case it happens to you, the mic input is 1 and the guitar input is 2

Other than that absolutely no problem

OVERALL OPINION

How long you use it?
-----------------------------------
A few days

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
-------------------------------------------------- ------
Not just the MBox previous

How would you rate the quality / price?
---------------------------------------
Everything is still too expensive, but for the price it works well
Also on a strictly technical level it is USB1 and the fact there or 48Hz models are more opulent of the 96 or 192 .. in short it is a good range of eentrée, but entry level.
Can not exceed 2/3 because beyond it blows but given the price and it is top for personal use with a Mac to play at home it's pretty close to ideal

I put good everywhere .. in the context of my use (personal use only, has the house to play using the Mac as amp). I doubt this is the ultimate weapon for a serious musician who made the scene etc etc ... preamps for example, do not seem to be killing, beyond the 2/3 of the gain knob it blows a lot.

I would do without hesitation that choice.

M-Audio Fast Track MKII
I know nothing ...

UTILIZATION

Audacity software supplied and for my part

GETTING STARTED

Be patient, but rather simple

OVERALL OPINION

I will be brief, I am bassist after 1 hour mark, first recording with XLR plug on my Ampeg BA115, nikel is exactly the same sound that emerges. I spend more time to calibrate the instrument with them to register as Audacity. a preset amp and various effects with the provided software, but I did not use because I'm XLR. For € 77 on Euroguitar very simple and effective.
