    USB 2.0 soundcard, use home with GarageBand and macbook pro.

    USE

    Mac, no driver, no concern for compatibility with macosx and GarageBand. I had problems on PC, but it was there 7 years, there are potential conflicts with the sound card integrated on the motherboard, it was enough to disable it.

    IMPLEMENTATION

    plug and play

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    10 years and holds up, she fell heavily on many occasions and it still works great. No delay problem. Impeccable for the Direct to disk with 1 instrument.

    So I'm shocked these opinions rather good while c pa at all a sound card profesionelle

    What has motivated my choice? jtai young in sound and ji connaisait anything now yes I'm technician studio and I become v ing sound by some months.

    USE

    Configuration is very simple and even too simple. The latency is too large ca 11 ms fears

    The preamps are incredible too bad c i rode a Classic 2 (exelent micro) and a 3D Prodipe STC (good microphone) c with two mic you turn up the gain and PAF we realize ke is an incredible noise floor the problem? the preamps of the fasttrack are too cheap amount gain it no longer follow ca creates too much background noise.

    IMPLEMENTATION

    11 ms latency The quality of the converter leaves a desire .. Then by recording rapper jme've realized a huge loss of quality of a recording with this sound card. Jai record the same rapper in the same studio with the same mic in the same place but with a Digi 003 (which is pro amateur range has therefore not bad) ben the diference incredible etai

    Result: Fast Track: Voice lifeless, no clarity, noise. Wholesale AC but really feared
    digi 003: Result satisfesant and very very reasonable noise

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    In the end if you bought a cheap sound card for sound mop and too bad the quality the fast track very well done ca

    if his vows voulai a pro ben map to see BTW.

    So here I am disappointed to have to buy this card but it fai year and a half now I know in mid ca sound card "professional" c in 4000euro min

    with a sound card is 250 euro your sound that sounds 250euro
    with a sound card is 4000 euro ta ki ringing sound 4000euro

    this has more people and good sound

    Cheap occas.
    Simple
    Very easy to use
    PC XP. behind a small personal mixer for the "all comers" but with a console pro borrowing for records that require miking much better.

    UTILIZATION

    I record two tracks left and right
    never planted to date
    I use free software that suit me very well.
    I also have a eom version of Cubase that is doing pretty well whatever it was hard to configure the monitoring; due to my inexperience with this product, but not serious I'm not a pro (Fast Track, for that matter although it is marked above).

    GETTING STARTED

    Very easy installation. it worked the first time!

    As the PC allocated to music and only music (or word or other games or even internet etc ...) is still on XP for a while everything is fine for installation.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I ½ for 1 year.
    I worked a bit with a Tascam U.S. 122 Not much to say very very bad about it.; but nothing special either. I was in the entry level. And I got my money. And I'm still with FTP but there is a little more than the others did not.

    One day on a record, I arrived at the edge preamps. I want to express here is that the sound was not as good as I expected. Since listening to a stereo set pretty decent (I will not do here to the measures that we do not hear in the ear), but realizes no misconception local guru from polluting our appreciation there has a something indefinable missing. And it is certainly not because of 220v cords of all only a few malignant imagining that putting the price of a solitaire it will change something. Duh! Yet in this thing there still has "commerçeux" who still rubbing their hands.

    After much research and considering my budget, I was advised to a Fast Track Pro.
    Not that the preamps are better. They are the same as in most of these good materials markets mediocre.
    Parenthesis:
    Ah yes like "Fast Track Pro"! "Pro"! Huh? Oh I think this material has never set foot in a studio called "PRO" and is not even close to doing troubleshooting. And since there is more, its successors the same price and its cousins ​​from other brands: ditto!
    The real power of this tool is rather precisely that for which I am quite happy to have followed the advice received: there 2 rear jacks insert!
    Yes then? Well simply used the feedback input jack with a stereo "arranged" so that the insert of the "FTP" output is carefully isolated. In this way you end up with a direct acquisition card on the A / D converters without these "famous" preamp. Then charge you to lend you (or lease) a gear mixer with the preamp you want.
    Of course if you can afford to buy you these consoles that cost an arm with real good preamp., I doubt that you came to visit the forum and review the Fast Track Pro. And you is not even reading all this.
    So just for that subtle little sound card features I put a good score.
    It helps if you find the ad hoc gear upstream to record a very nice thing to listen.
    Otherwise the rest for the "all comers" zic oxen between friends who are laughing well and that will never see the top 50; or even the top 500 who do not have a budget stretch to infinity then there is this card very well.
    I even posted a forum to ask if qq'un knew install both in parallel to record four tracks. but no response to date.
    if yes I will seek another for this facility to make internal preamps when the goal the request (for pure acoustic).
    zic very good to one and all

    Ps: my ideal: I recorded a clarinet or a classical guitar. I close my eyes. I ask zicos playing his art. I listen to the recording. I wish I did not hear any difference. ah yeah i know ..... in another life when I'm Bill Gates. ah ben? there is no zic? yeah! but he afford all the gear he wants without touching the soldering iron.
    But that does not make it my idol and I do not want more than that. I think he does not know how lucky he is even if it is with his job he got there.

    I bought the Fast Track Pro early 2012 (it has 2 years) to replace my old ASIO sound card, preferring USB external format in view of the possible purchase of a laptop computer later.
    Its 2 instrument input / microphone with phantom power, its small size, its MIDI ports and direct supply by USB (without external power supply) were perfect for my current and future needs.

    When I wanted to buy early 2012 it took a while I try to find a dealer who still had in stock. I would have bought something else, but at this time there were other bcp's most expensive cards.

    When I wanted to buy early 2012 it took a while I try to find a dealer who still had in stock. I would have bought something else, but at this time there were other bcp's most expensive cards. I finally found my happiness in SonoVente, and the seller told me "it's normal that you do not find anywhere else, this model is no longer manufactured and we bought the entire stock of M- Audio "

    UTILIZATION

    I mainly use Guitar Rig and Cubase. Latency is decent, quality preamps and converters suit me. So far I'm really satisfied, this card is ideal for small guitarist I am.

    The driver ... it is the problem! Initially I had a PC Core2Duo E-8400-3 GHz with 4 GB of RAM and Windows 7 Pro 32-bit, I used the driver provided on the CD with the sound card (version 6.0.2).
    After about 24 hours my system "lost" the road map, which forced me to turn off and on the card to be functional again. So I went fishing on the manufacturer's website last driver: Version 6.0.7
    6.0.7 This version has not corrected the problem was persistent. I did not go further than that, a small on / off the sound card per day is not death ...

    I recently changed gear: Core i5 / Ogo Ram / Windows 7 Pro x64. I checked the manufacturer's website if a newer version of the driver was out in the meantime: nada!
    So I installed my version 6.0.7 since it 32/64 bit compatible. And there is the drama! no sound in Guitar Rig nor in Cubase: (

    So I push my further investigations on the net, and I found a forum that talks about newer versions of driver.je back with difficulty the track and ended up getting a 6.1.10 release.
    How is it that Avid or M-Audio have not posted this version from their site? Is this version is a Beta version?? Strange anyway, especially for a card that was apparently stopped production.

    Anyway, I installed the driver and 6.1.10 miracle, I sound! I believe saved me with a big sigh of relief, only remains to wait and see if this driver is stable over time ... and this is not the case! After about 24 hours, the system still loses the road map, except that when I turn it off and back on, I have a sound that Brrrrrrrrrrrr!!

    In the [panel config]> [uninstall program] I tried the "repair"
    And then it works, the sound card becomes functional and normal sound. Since I am forced to reset my sound card + daily repair driver ...
    awesome, I love: (


    GETTING STARTED

    I decided to contact M-Audio support in order to see if they were not in their drawers a newer version of the driver that the 6.1.10 version I had procured another site than their own.

    Response M-Audio a week after ". The Fast Track is Being Manufactured and supported by Avid You can touch 'em through www.avid.com"

    I makes me the AVID site and there galley, the site (in English) is not at all clear. Drivers side they only provide versions for Mac and side support, it seems that we should "buy a ticket" to gain access to support, not even a contact link to send them an email. Wholesale their drivers are crap and more should I pay for software support? Where are we going?

    In the end I'm pissed!
    For a brand that prides itself on making professional products I really feel they have been taken for a fool. I therefore decided not to push my investigations before a steady driver sentenced to fix my daily driver until I replace the sound card when it is dying.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Before I used a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum bought around 2000/2001 (PCI Rack + external card), not really a map adapted to the zic fluke but she bore the standard ASIO when I had the opportunity Discover computer music avoiding me to invest earlier in a sound card really dedicated to the Zic. This one ended up grilling after 10 years of loyal service, which is why I bought the Fast Track Pro, which showed a clear improvement in sound quality and a good ability to manage projects with 30 or Cubase 40 tracks and a multitude of virtual instruments based samples (so heavy compared to synthesized sounds).

    After 2 years of use I am always satisfied with the sound quality of this card, I urinate copiously against M-Audio (which kindly returns the baby to Avid without getting wet) and especially on Avid I conchie policy support .

    So those (or those) who would buy this card, buy something else!
    At the time of this writing (January 2014), other brands have released USB external sound card to the same capacity and number of entry in a price range € 120/180, go rather squint their side and AVID flee, at least for their consumer line.

    I bought this interface to record guitar and vocals, just in order to listen to me and correct me. I plugged in entering the microphone singing and microphone combo.

    UTILIZATION

    This interface problems of co-habitation with the sound cards of all pc on which I connected. Obviously, it would have to do it there (which is not always possible).
    On the other hand, if it is disconnected while a program is using the pc crash, but if it is connected during a pc goes to sleep, it crashes too.

    As she served me as a PC dedicated to recording, it was bearable.

    GETTING STARTED

    Installation was carefree but cohabitation with some programs (guitar pro, for example) is laborious ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Next record, nothing to say. The quality is there, above what my ears perceive.
    Side connection, everything is also: the headphone jack, the headphone mix input / pc, direct broadcasting, I lack nothing.

    Or that gene, the preamp input: I do not know judge its quality, but it has no progressive: 1/8 of the race, a weak signal passes to a saturated signal.
    I fixed it by buying a two preamp inputs.

    Same for the headphone output: my headset is high impedance and the output volume is too low (it is very correct on a low-impedance headphones). So, I had to buy a headphone amp.

    In summary, if you have a regular headset and you should not change too often the entry level, it's a great interface.
    A remake, everything depends on the likely cost of an interface with a preamp worthy of the name, but it must be much more expensive. If not, well, I'm satisfied.
