- What characteristics have motivated your choice?

Outputs, inputs, firewire, USB, in short, the possibilities of routing it smelled hot sand.

- Which instruments or systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you use it and how connections?

In the basic external sound card, plugged in and Jack live console.

- For what purpose? What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / RAM / Disk ,...)?

Asus Pc of a pretty good bill, to go out and run a monitoring since FLStudio, doing the final mix is ​​then internally.

I said that it's all very theoretical, the drivers are so unstable in the end I mostly used the card to listen only to exploit the inputs and outputs.

UTILIZATION

- The drivers are stable?

No, it crashes often for no apparent reason and when it crashes blue screen is direct, very disabling.

- Are they updated frequently?

Never. (Edit: I spoke too quickly, they come from the update ...)

- What you get lag?

Okay, but I tend to really buggers on the tracks and effects.

- What software do you use most often?

FLStudio.

- How many tracks you get to record / play simultaneously?

I gave up this ambition I had to do everything with a PC, I decided to switch to multi-dedicated recording computer is not for me.

GETTING STARTED

- The installation is done it without problems?

Never lose the cd!

- Have you encountered any incompatibilities?

I do not know if we can speak of incompatibilities, rather ill-will on the part of the map ...

- The general configuration is easy?

Very complex.

- The manual is clear and sufficient?

After 5 blue screens, I decided to stay on the little I knew before throwing out the window, so I could not say ...

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

A year and a half.

- What is so special that you love the most, least?

Plus: The sound is good, it is very versatile, and it provides when I deal with FLStudio, I guess it is also very effective for people who have managed to resolve their config to the millimeter to not plant it. Routing possibilities seem really huge, maybe too much.

Minimum: the repeated crashes are really discouraging, I read that I was not alone in this case, I was reassured, but no more. No updates to the drivers when they are not stable, it is very unfortunate.

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Too expensive in view of the crashes that nullify any productivity.

- With experience, you do again this choice?

No.
