M-Audio Delta 44 PCI Interface

Need a great sounding audio interface without digital I/O? The M-Audio Delta 44 offers the same features and high performance as the Delta 66, but is designed for the user who does not require digital I/O. And like its big brother, the Delta 44's breakout box handles four balanced/unbalanced, +4dBu or -10dBV signal level analog inputs and outputs. You get the same 24-bit/96kHz fidelity, industry-standard driver support and bulletproof operation as is found across the entire Delta family.

Features

- 4 x 4 24-bit/96kHz full-duplex audio interface
- 4x4 analog I/O
- Zero-latency monitoring
- Includes Ableton Live Lite music production software, so you can make music right away

36-bit Embedded DSP

All Delta cards contain a 36-bit embedded DSP enabling a software-driven patchbay/router for all analog and digital I/O--all with extremely fast throughput for low-latency software monitoring. A single unified control panel provides settings for clock and sample rates, buffer sizes, individual signal levels for every input and output, and adjustable +4dBu/-10dBV pad controls. All controls are also easily accessible through most professional audio software applications for seamless integration and operation.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of M-Audio products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (185 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"You won't be sorry if you would buy this"
Sound: The sound is really great! No noise as far as I can hear and it's clean and excellent quality Feature: The breakout box was great! They said you could record up to 4 channels at the same time, but actually that is 2 stereo channels. You get ProTools Demo with it and Live Lite, but ProTools won't work (probably like the LE version because I have Windows XP). Quality: It looks steady and strong and it feels like that. Value: This is the first soundcard I've seen for such a low price and such good features! The Wow Factor: It's great! It's the best for the price! Overall: It's very good! Except that you only get 4 (2 stereo) inputs, but for the price it's excellent!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "VERY Happy with this Interface"
Overall: BUY THIS!!! There is a lot of talk about how the digital converters in this interface aren't on par with other nterfaces on the market. Maybe these guys are right but I can't hear it! My recordings are awesome and I'm not even using a high-end mic. (I use an AKG 990 mostly voice and acoustic guitar) And for the price you'd be crazy to try anything else. This baby does the job and does it FLAWLESSLY OUT OF THE BOX!!! My only recommendation would be to download the ASIO driver. It's a universal driver that literally REMOVES any latency. If you record multi-track audio/MIDI with a PC and you don't know about this driver-- you will! This driver should come on the driver disk from the factory! (This driver is universal for most interfaces and is not an M-Audio product). If you are recording audio into your PC based recording software, or MIDI from a MIDI controller, YOU NEED THIS DRIVER. Anyway, unless you are willing to spend about $1,000, you will not find a product on the market that will compare to this interface. I read reviews and forum threads and I read spec sheets and watched demo videos of every product of this type that I could find for over a week before I made my decision. Use all the research and homework that I've already done for you and BUY IT! I'm glad that I did! For "product support" and "Wow Factor" ratings, I gave this a three star rating because I haven't had to use product support. And as for the "wow factor," well there isn't much to it. It just WORKS! I have completely tracked and mastered two songs with this interface (nearly two weeks of work) and haven't had so much as a hiccup from it! I plan on buying a second one for a friend that is building his own PC based recording system so that he won't have to learn the lessons that I have the hard way. This interface is the way to go. I know it sounds like I must work for the company or something, I DON'T!!! I just know what it's like being a musician and being on a tight budget. You try to get by with getting the low-end stuff so you can still afford groceries and hope that it does the job- only to end up regretting it because you didn't get what you needed! Trust me, this is one of the times that you CAN buy the lower model and it actually DOES THE JOB so you don't have to eat ramen noodles for the next month! KEEP MAKING MUSIC!!!

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.
