I've heard a lot of people complaining about the stability of their drivers... this is always the problem when a company try to launch peripherals as they have no know how in sofware dveloppement...
So you'd better negociate a tryal periode if your are decided to buy it!
I think M-Audio or RME have better products, but I'm perahps wrong...
What are you exactly looking for? (number of I/O, definition, bus, use)
Quote: I just bought the US 122 yesterday because the salesman assured me it would be the greatest way to record sound into my computer without using a soundcard. Only problem is when I try to record audio (or anything for that matter) I just hear a series of beeps. I've gone over the manual cover to cover a few times (all 4 pages of it) and still can't figure out what the problem is. I've tried it on both windows XP and windows 98SE. I hope it's something small I'm overlooking. If anyone has any idea of what the problem might be I would be much obliged because there is no way of contacting these guys about anything. Thanks.
I'm realy sorry for that! I hope you will find a solution. But don't hesitate to bring back you card if ever the hotline is not able to give you the corect advice!
Did you check if new driver are available?
I don't put much through it one time (i mainly record one track at a time), but its handy as I can pop round my mates plug it into his laptop and record, burn to disk and come home. plus its good for my mike which needs phantom power.
anyways, I'm sure its not the best card out there, but I thought I would put a posting sticking up for it for once!!
I want to use Guitar and mike with reason on win XP with not a great deal of RAM (256) and he said the Tascam would be better as it has impedance balanced inputs for guitar and Mike.
My teacher also says he has another student using one of these with no trouble at all. On the other hand the other USB option one of his students has is an M-Audio card which has caused alot of problems because it keeps dropping its drivers so I dont fancy that
Its a bit worrying seeing all these concerns but having looked on the market I think I might go ahead and get it anyhow. It looks like the best for what I need at a reasonable price.
PS my friend said he'd choose the DMX because of its EMU chip and because Reason needs aot of computing power. i dont fully understand this concept could someone explain what the EMU chip does and how you can compare various ones??
