Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (30 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "E-mu 0202, the "secret weapon" interface!"
Sound: Evaluating this for transfering analog recordings, it's close to flawless. No artifacts, no sound of it's own. Feature: The level/clipping indicators are handy and accurate. Controls are simple and easy to use. Ease of Use: Installation was trivial. No problems co-existing with other sound cards and drivers on my computer. The input connector scheme is a bit peculiar, but once you understand how and why they did it that way, it makes sense. Very flexible input scheme for single ended or balanced, but the manual could be clearer as to the actual signal routing. A stereo line and mic input connector would be nice, but certainly isn't essential. Quality: Excellent fit and finish, a beautiful little unit. Very well made at its price point, but I'd avoid stepping on it or yanking on the connectors. The combination DIN/1/4" phone jack is plastic. On the road, you might want a backup. In the studio, no problem. Value: I'm not aware of any other interface that offers this level of performance at this price. Manufacturer Support: No problems yet. The Wow Factor: Nice styling. Overall: The perfect interface in terms of sound quality. I'd certainly buy it again. The only thing that would steer me to something else would be the need for more inputs or channels.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good unit for the money."
Sound: Ok, these things are rated at 115~ SNR on both input/output. That's no slouch, that's close to the Emu 1212, and the same as it's bigger brother the 0404. DAC and ADC is good IMO. I just got this unit in the mail, I set it up and tried to record some talking voices, sounds good to me. I had the Audigy 4 Pro before this (which is another good unit for casual recording, not a whole lot of input/output, and it is unbalanced, but the DAC and ADC is pretty dam good). This one actually sounded a little cleaner IMO, but that's probably because I'm bias toward new gear. Feature: This unit basically has 2 mono input. Input 2 is your regular 1/4" jack, Input 1 is interesting, it's a 3 in 1 combo, a 1/8" jack + 1/4" jack + XLR, it's got a built in preamp for the XLR but no phantom power, so only dynamic mic will work. Not a problem for me, I have seperate pre amp feeding the mic. It's got 2 output, and here's where I liked the way it's design, 1 output is a stereo (2 seperate mono Left + Right 1/4" jack), this is good for monitors because that's basically what they uses. The other output is a 1/8" jack that you usually see in computer speakers, this makes it super easier to A/B your mix, frankly speaking, w/e you mix on the monitor will not likely be play through a set of monitors, it'll be play through regular speakers, this makes it easier to see what it sound like with regular speakers. The front has a headphone jack + amp. for tracking purpose, I find this pretty useful. Other wise it came with a bunch of software (experimental version), like cubase + melodyne + a bunch of other stuff, I tried out the cubase, it's alright, although it only let me uses 2 VST effect per track, not very useful IMO, and I guess it'll be the same for the other stuff it's bundle with. Ease of Use: I'm computer savy, I know for a fact that if I had previously install another sound card, and I try to install this, it'll be a real problem. So I grab my spare computer, format it, and install this in as the primary sound card. And the installation was rough, the software is not very responsive and takes a long time to load. Took me about 1-2 hours to figure out what to install and how to set the thing to work properly, I suspect if someone isn't very good with the computer, there's a huge chance they'll return it before finishing the installation. I know for a fact it's a software problem, I installed this on an E6600 duo core + 4GB of ram, freshly format, there's no way the computer is at fault for speed. Quality: It feels nice, plastic but solid none the less. I don't think I'll have any problem keeping it as 1 piece from my light usage. Value: It's a really good value if you're only doing 2 tracks. It's got alot of features for the price, and it's good where it counts (ADC + DAC + features). If you're looking for something that can handle more input, this is not the unit. Manufacturer Support: I dunno, just got the unit. The Wow Factor: sex appeal? not really, it's not very flashy to begin with haha. Overall: I think this is my final stops. All I really need is 2 input, and 2 output to have different monitors. The DAC and ADC of this thing is close to the much more expensive Emu 1616 (like 400 bucks and I believe it's SNR is 120+). And with my untreated room + untrain ears, I doubt I can hear the difference, this is more of fun project than proffesional studio. I think I'll keep it for along time.
