Product Description

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
"For a small band (4 instruments or so), Delta 44 is your perfect choice for seting your home recording studio with VERY little m"
Sound: great sound, dynamic is excellent, I did microfon recording without a special pre-amp, the sound is excellent !!!, no noise, clipping/chopping. And this was with a PII 266MH machine...The inputs for keyboard does not require an additional preamp, however, if a guitar is used, a pre-amp may be desired. You can also get extra gain by going into the mixer software and set the input to -10dB rather than the +4dB default. There is no MIDI in-out but that can be easily achieved by buying an extra MIDIUno interface for $49 that works via USB. Feature: The product icludes enough accessories for initial set-up. External instrument cables to be procured separately. The manual is pretty explicit, although I had to create my own LOGICAL diagram to determine the connectivity between the Delta 44 mixer, Cakewalk recording software and Reason. Quality: great sound for the money robust product the box(input/output controller)offers elegant instrument connectivity avoids cables hanging Value: i am not familiar with other products but I would most likely preffere it over the Prodigy Pro (similar features) audio card. Manufacturer Support: very professional, you must know a little bit what you are talking about otherwise, the risk is you loose their attention The Wow Factor: although that would be overdesigned, a 19" rack mounting type design with some control leds on the front pannels and gain knobs would make the product more appealing. Overall: i will keep it for a long time, it is perfect for my home studio

"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!
Style of Music: Hiphop

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

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.
