For sterling recording on your laptop!
Until the Echo Indigo IO 2-Channel Record/Playback Card, notebook pro recording was never this convenient and affordable. Indigo IO offers stereo 1/8" analog input and output on a Type II Cardbus card powered by your notebook computer. 24-bit/96kHz converters insure pristine sound.
A unique feature of the Indigo IO is the use of "virtual" outputs. Indigo IO appears to software as if it has 8 separate outputs, which are digitally mixed down to the physical outputs using Indigo IO's console software and onboard DSP. This makes Indigo IO compatible with all popular multitrack software. And, with Echo's multi-client drivers, more than one application (such as an editor and a software synth) can be played back simultaneously.

You can't ask for better sound reproduction out of a laptop card. Clean, concise and true.Throw it in your laptop breifcase and go. Great portability allows me to work anywhere.
Instantly easy to install and sounds superb. I use mine with Cakewalk products and have about 20ms latency on my "worst case" situations (with Slicy Drummer and Fill Drummer).I hooked up my oscilloscope and signal generator and recorded a +6.3 dBu RMS sinewave separately on both channels and got a perfect reproduction on the output--no clipping, noise, etc.I connected my headphones and started to audition my favorite music, but Tears for Fears' Women in Chains was played at maximum volume and almost had me in tears it sounded so good.The highs were very crisp and clean, not too bright, and complimented the tight bass very well.I am extremely pleased with my Indigo I/O and recommend it to anyone interested in great sound.
I have been using this card in an Averatec computer to play soft synths in a live setting. This is the answer to the cheap amps in most laptops. The card and drivers also cut my latency time to an unnoticable level. I did experience a few small problems with noise and impedance on stage. When we were playing with no snake and I was 5ft from a Mackie all was well,then we went to a 100ft snake with direct boxes and a new mixer. I used a monster cable from Radio Shack to clear up the noise. The impedence problem persisted until I used my 1402VLZ into my channel and plugged into it. This is impractical to move this every week so I am looking into adjusting my windows mixer and or maybe getting a better direct box. I think this is a problem with the mixer setup and not the card. If you own a fairly fast laptop this is the ticket.
I wanted to start recording on my laptop and the Indigo was a very portable and affordable solution and it sounds great! I recommend it to anyone who needs to take their audio production on the road, or anyone just starting out. Great all around product.
Got it. Installed with no problems and have been running it for about a year now. Amazing sound quality with no latency (thanks to the on-board DSP) great card and excellent quality.
This card seemed like a good choice.I researched it and it looked great.After 2 weeks of using it every day and handling it carefully, windows suddenly did not recognize it. I re-installed twice and the light came on once on the card. As soon as I hooked up the 1/8 inch cable I got a blue screen.Frustrated, I went to the computer store thinking it was my bus. Turned out that it was the card!Beware, this thing is very,very fragile and might break.
The software that comes with this baby is fairly worthless if you want to do anything creative. The more advanced software that is included is either demo or for "trial" purposes. Better have additional cash in your wallet for editing software if you want to do anything more than record and playback.
I have the Layla Laptop, but I do a lot of travel and the layla is too big to pull out on an Airplane. The Indigo I/O is perfect for me to mix and edit the music I am working on and it sounds just as good as the Layla Laptop. I am very happy with this addition to my studio.
