"All you need for recording and playback"5.0 starson by swift6912
Pros: Good quality design, gold plated input entries, sounds great and simple to use. Works with almost every low latency sound drivers. Knocks Creative's new usb X-FI external down the drain since it supports every sound program or recorders properly.
Cons: Still uses USB 1.1 cable but does not run slow or anything like that, its just and old USB format.
Summary: My experience with this Usb soundcard was sublime. I had just purchased the new X-fi 5.1 external and all i had was nightmares with recording and instrument playback. With the Live 24 bit EX, everything worked like a charm and i could use low latency sound drivers such as Asio4All without getting Blue Screens like the ridiculous X-fi was giving me. This is the macadamian nut of affordable usb cards, you wont get good quality for such a low price from creative anymore.. Get it while you still can.
