And improve noise performance, likely will try inserting signal directly 04404 the endstage. But 04404 is full of adventures. Video 3Digests Video cards: The hardware itself is a slightly-larger-than-expected desktop box with input connectors at the front and output connectors at the rear.

Cons Requires mains power supply. The separate level controls for headphones and speakers are very welcome, while the status lights for MIDI In and Out are helpful too. Based on you experience with EMU, would you be willing to offer some detail? The offers excellent connectivity, great performance and a fine software bundle.

The only criticism to the design is that phantom power is enabled on both XLR inputs simultaneously. ASIO diagnostics, objective tests Page 3: It enables to connect the device directly to active acoustic systems without being afraid of dynamic range losses due to digital level reduction. Prima facie, the non-USB power ush seems surprising.

We can also celebrate the return of a couple of long lost friends: By the way, we found out that some users still succeeded in making the device work as a standalone external DAC. If you do have any latency problems, you can use the well-worn workaround that is direct monitoring.


This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Never had one problem. We struggled to get acceptable performance at latency settings lower than 10ms, though new drivers might improve this in the future. The combination of top-class audio performance and comprehensive audio connectivity means that it can cope well in a wide variety em situations. There is no modification required. It would make life easier for any potential mods.

Sadly, the USB 2. To what level the USB 2. IMHO modification is not required.

On the bottom we can find 2 miniature ground-lift switches, which are very useful for negating sneak ground circuits occuring when you connect a large number of equipment usually it’s 50 Hz noise pickup with multiple harmonics, can also be cracking, etc. Note the analog output signal level control. However, to make us completely happy, vendor could add the standalone DAC mode with external clocking.

Ron, your absolutely right. It’s surely more comfortable to use hardware controllers, than software sliders. Image 3 of 3 The also has a socket for a power supply. Image 2 of 3 The USB 2. Phantom-power is available so studio-grade mics can be usedand, remarkably, there are ground-lift switches on the bottom of the unit so that hum problems can be easily fixed. Image 1 of 3 The hardware is a slightly large desktop box. I am just now buying an and I plan to mod it.


On the other hand, they could limit it to drivers and reduce the price even further. The noise spectrum doesn’t raise until 80 kHz allowing to avoid problems with intermodulation of good signal as well as modulator noise-shaped signal. My first plan is to change all the caps better ones. I have a bunch of audio test equipment, can provide numbers, plots for each modification.

But it becomes obvious when you consider that the card consumes current of up to 1 ampere, while a single USB port is limited to mA even less in real devices. ASIO diagnostics, objective tests.

Makes ,- for the EMU and the mics together. Or make recordings at this resolution. Sub will continue to document my progress and hopefully my results as well.

Since the supply voltage is 5V, perhaps, the first engineering samples were bus-powered. Write a comment below.

The usbb are presented as Neutrik combo jacks, which offer microphone, instrument and – surprisingly – balanced line inputs for both the left and right channels. Introduction, specs, bundle Page 2: In that case phantom power, when enabled, won’t cause any problems see explanations of Mackie’s specialists.

And despite being overpriced, the first stock was sold out within 24 hours.
