If you record live audio, DON'T BUY THIS CARD
There is a half second delay between when you send analog audio to the line level input and when you hear it played back on the speakers. I have never had an audio card that had this problem. I talked to Asus tech support and they said there was no way around this issue. The forum for this card on their website said the same thing. It appears to be an issue with the driver.
The worst thing about this is that on the Asus website the tech specs for this card say the following:
"ASIO 2.0 Driver Support:
Supports 44.1K/48K/96K/192KHz @16/24bit with very low latency"
Very Low latency? I DON'T THINK SO.
Anything that we can hear is not low latency, let alone very low latency.
