Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (137 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome sound card for recording!"
Sound: Really nice, bright sound with lots of headroom. Feature: Very, very low latency, astoundingly so! Must be the 32 bit DSP. Quality: Top notch all the way. Value: Top notch card for the price. Manufacturer Support: Never really used it but they give you some decent manuals (PDF's). The Wow Factor: It's a very good product but obviously a break out box would be more sexy but it would be more expensive. Overall: I would say unless your getting really serious about recording, this should easily suffice the loan musician or creating demos.
Style of Music: Rock, folk jazz

"Great deal...."
Sound: Blows away what I had before (Trutle beach Santa Cruz) The included Protesus X soft synth sounds great (although it is a CPU hog!) Feature: The software bundle alone is worth the price of admission. I was a Home studio user so the Sonar LE software was a nice little upgrade. The dsp effects are neat, although I was slightly disappointed in that you can't use more than one or two at time in real time. Quality: Seems well built....no forseen issues here. Value: What a deal....very happy with purchase Manufacturer Support: Excellent. EMU responded almost instantly to my e-mail to inform me of Flash Bios update. Only frustrating because I bought the card on a Friday night and wanted to play with it all weekend but EMU support wasn't available over the weekend The Wow Factor: For the price it's awesome. About the only thing more you could ask for is additional I/O or a break out box. Overall: Don't know what all the negative hype is about how hard it is to use. Read the manual and get help from EMU support, because what you get for $100 is pretty awesome.
Style of Music: Contemporary Christian / Praise and Worship

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
