This is a world class card that many major studios and film houses depend on. Uses it's own processing, not the computers.
i got the pulsar 2 as an expansion to my other card.this is more than just a 24/96 soundcard, it has routing abilities like an ordinary studio, giving you the ability to route from any adio host, through effects into any of the built in mixers, back into the audio host and so on. all mixers, effects, samplers and soft-synths are dsp powered, meaning that they don't use cpu power. now as a singer, guitarist, songwriter the synths don't increase the value much for me and it's a shame that a significant part of the software bundle consists of synths (when more emphasis could have been put on, say mastering tools.) nevertheless the sound quality is great and the routing possibilities are infintite.
This card is absolutely worth the investment! The ability to route signals at will to a wide variety of devices, makes this literally a virtual studio, with high quality mixers, amps, effects, you name it. It's completely changed how I work with digital recording.
The card itself is probably a great one but the software that comes with it is very difficult to figure out. It's also very unfortunate that the support is also something that needs improvement. The sound of the card is everage nothing outstanding. Lot of programs don't wot/rk in xtc mode and it defeats the purpose of having 6 processors on board. The sofware is BETA at best. Too expensive and lot of useless features. I'd prefer something more user friendly and less audio engineering userface. It's an ok card all over. Nothing that would worth this much money.
I have used alot of hardware including Event Mona, Pro Tools and more... the Pulsar II blows em' all away.
