Its real nice to have all the inputs and outputs, the mic preamps sound great, except after 2 years of use the A line has been having some voltage issues, large fluctuations at about .5 hz. The onboard effects are a nice touch, but i hardly use them, they have weird latency problems when i link them into FL Studio.

Price paid: 399 USD


It took me a bit to understand how it went about using asio, but now that i understand it i get around pretty well, and ut can actually be fun to use. I can put reverb on someones voice while recording dry. Its nice to have a digital mixer, but an analog mixer is ten times better.


Like i said earlier the mic A input is hardly usable now, and the headphone input is feeling loose(pops and cracks when moved), guess it might be time to get a headphone amp, and maybe a mic pre. It was great while it worked though.


Well MUCH better than the crap that comes out of a stock sound card. Though I havn't heard any other interfaces in the price range through my monitors.

Well it was my first prosumer card, and i don't have much to base my opinion on other than my friends equipment. It definatly has better features than other interfaces in its price range. Its treated me well, but it hasn't been increadibly reliable. I'll have to get a new interface at some point, and i'm not going to buy another EMU. I guess its a good card for the money, but its only to tie you over till you go for the big/expensive stuff.
