Newbie with Much To Learn

mpbillk212, Ebay
25 August 2014
  • Summary: I have not yet really used it yet. I am impressed that a product 11 years old still works and has current drivers available. The drivers are updated but the manual has not been. The XP instructions said to install the drivers first so that is what I did and then I shut down the PC, installed the 2496 in an available PCI slot and rebooted. One thing to note: Windows 7 64bit takes a lot longer to boot when the 2496 is in the PCI slot.

100 % satisfied.

  • Summary: I bought this used for a reasonable price. Works great with my DAW. Great sound. M Audio now has stuff with more inputs/outputs, but this suited my needs. Only drawback, no headphone jack. But card is powerful enough that I can hook up headphones to the standard speaker output. Though not at the same time (I could get a splitter). Wanna dabble in computer audio recording? Get this and reaper. Very inexpensive way to determine if it's for you.

  • Excerpt: "Just so you are aware: I've reviewed this already, but there's two of these on Ciao, exactly the same product - thought I'd cover both with my review so you buyers get to read it :D This was the first soundcard I purchased, about 4 years ago at £60, it was and still is an absolute bargain! While this is certainly an entry level professional soundcard, with 2in/2out, it's been designed carefully and with as much detail as higher-spec sound cards ...
  • Pros: Value for Money, Rock - Solid Performance
  • Cons: Quite simply none  : D

While this is certainly an entry level professional soundcard, with 2in/2out, it's been designed carefully and with as much detail as higher-spec sound cards which I've purchased from M-Audio. Installation is extremely simple as with nearly all PCI devices these days: chuck in the driver CD, or download and install the latest versions. ...

  • Excerpt: С мониторами студийными Monitor Audio ltd и в комплекте высококлассным усилителем звучит превосходно, что касается записи не знаю!!!
  • Pros: Карточка выдерживает любой бюджет, Вставил в ПК и все, драйверы от win 7 32 bit sp1 подошли как влитые в win 8 32 bit, Звучание великолепное после стандартной материнской аудиокарты.
  • Cons: Нету входа для наушников!!!!!!!!!!!!

наважно неважно, Yandex
11 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Сейчас m-audio стали хуже и дороже делать карты, но этой модельке я до сих пор рад, хоть и буду менять на focusrite scarlett 2i2.
  • Pros: Низкая цена, хороший звук (работаю с музыкой, записываю гитары), невероятная стабильность и совместимость с софтом. За ~6-7 лет эксплуатации не помню НИ ОДНОЙ проблемы ни с драйверами, ни с карточкой. До сих пор работает и радует :) Все еще поддерживается производителем, НИ НА ОДНОЙ ос семейства windows не было проблем с драйверами, даже на 8.
  • Cons: Нет выхода под наушники, нет инструментальных\микрофонных входов. Хотя за эту цену, с таким хорошим звуком иначе быть и не могло.

  • Excerpt: За такие деньги до сих пор нет равных
  • Pros: Отличная карта, хороший чистый звук, поддержка ASIO, и несмотря на свою старость до сих пор актуальна и поддерживается производителем. есть драйвера для Windows 7 (64). В то время, как большенство ровесников уже давно не поддерживаются драйверами. Карта по звуку до сих пор задвигает встроеные в материнку звуковухи! Спустя 10 лет заявляю, что карта СУПЕР
  • Cons: Нет микрофонного входа

Dit is al een van mijn vele bestellingen bij bax-shop en had hem gelijk na 1 dag al thuis bezorgd, Top!
