The usual features are there, I think. I like this card cuz it has RCA IN; RCA Outs would be nice; or just more INs/OUTs over all. The midi is doable--there's a MIDI gameport I don't use and two little midi ports for in and out (they look like keyboard/mice plugs); they require an adapter that came with the card. I use those from a MIDI Out on the MPC3K. With CakeWalk, XP Pro --no problems w/latency/drivers, thus far. I do NOT like the separate hardware interface with all the plugs/ports in and out--it takes up space in a hard drive bay even though it looks cool and has a remote control.

Price paid

$199 US (Overpriced IMHO)

UTILIZATION

A blind paraplegic could use this thing (no offense!), but it was out of the box, in the machine and working in like 20 min. Even when I moved up to XP, a simple reinstallation of the drivers made the thing work again without problems.

GETTING STARTED

I think it's solid and won't crack or anything pulling stuff in and out. Buttons could be larger and the actual soundcard (in the motherboard slot) is just like the $30 card with more ins/outs. I use a fourtrack portastudio's like a recording backup for the PC/soundcard; it's much more stable.

OVERALL OPINION

I can't compare with other similar cards. The sound quality is good to me. I get hot mixes and relatively low noise; the noise I get is not from the card.

I love it cuz it's all I have at the moment. I use the thing like a hard disk recorder, (and of course to spit audio out) although it brings in the audio *and MIDI nicely. The PC was much improved with this soundcard and while it was overpriced, I'd probably pay it again.
