    Handy, reliable interface...

    Comments about E-Mu 0404 PCIe Digital Audio System:

    I just realized that I've had this for 4.5 years and cant complain about anything. The DSP effects aren't the greatest but for the price and for the added comfort of knowing that its taking some of the load of ur CPU its nice. This thing has been a reliable workhorse for me that I never have to think about...regardless of hard drive crashes, switching computers, viruses, moving across the country, etc. If I ever do upgrade my interface I will have a soft spot in my heart for this little thing since it really got me started in PC recording and up to the intermediate level. The Patchmix DSP also has some great functions that shouldnt be overlooked.
