UTILIZATION

The drivers are stable?
Impec

How often are updated?
I know, but there are drivers for Seven 64 which is really good because it's been a while since the map is no longer marketed. Apparently, Echo continues to monitor seriously.

What software do you use most often? What you get lag? How many tracks do you manage to record / play simultaneously? ...
Cross DJ essentially. No recording with this card. Latency set to 15 ms is more than enough for me. Not tried lower but with IO Echo and Sonar, I went down below 10 ms without problems.

GETTING STARTED

The installation is done it without problem? Have you encountered any incompatibilities? The general configuration is easy? The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
I had nothing to do since I had previously installed an IO Echo. The DJ was recognized and roll my chicken.
Memory, installation super simple. The use is equally important.

OVERALL OPINION

How long you use it?
Few months. Previously, I had an IO Echo, the same, but with only one exit and one entrance. Used for years.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
Plus, this is first it sounds great.
Then his character very compact: only a little bit more than the computer. This is valuable when to mix in places where there is no room. Having an internal card recess also having a hell of a thread over and over.

Minimum, consideration of compactness is that the outputs are a min-TRS. Obviously I would prefer to jack outputs, or even XLR, but it would not!

Did you tried many other models before buying it? How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ..
I tested a bunch of sound cards (see my articles for AF). As I have a laptop with PCMCIA, I remain faithful to it for mobile use (although in severe need, I take my RME Multiface).
Given that the next laptop will probably not PCMCIA, it is likely that I will replace the version PCExpress.
