The secret is out!

Comments about E-Mu 1212M PCIe Digital Audio System:

I've owned Version 2 and Version PCI and PCIe and they have worked flawlesslu given their built in limitations. There are no preamps but you shouldn't expect any at this price. It simply gets your analog or digital into your computer period. And with surprising high quality due to the converters used. Suggestion: Anyone having any problems with pops or unwanted noise...INCREASE YOUR ASIO LATENCY by 1 or 2 ms. Everytime I've done that any problems have gone away and stayed away. Ableton Live is a great test for me. I usually run 6ms. Team this card up with a nice preamp which you can now afford because you saved so much money using this card!

For the price, there's nothing better

Comments about E-Mu 1212M PCIe Digital Audio System:

I bought this to use to record live shows from my board. I must say it performs brilliantly. I am using a Behringer ADA8000 with this and have a Manley Dual Pre for use with the analog inputs. the ADA conversion in the card is awesome. the only complaint I have is that there is no headroom in the built in pre's but what can you expect. for the money this is the best you can buy.
