the card is decent good for beginners, to do any reasonable recording u will need a pre-amp as the A/D converters are noisy as hell. but combine that with a good noise reduction programme such as the one found in cool edit pro, u can get some good results. Ive had the card for about two years, im using it with a joemeek VC3Q and im happy. im making hip-hop so i like the ruff quality obtained.

well, don't understand all those are in war against Soundblaster, pretending they're professionist who would never even touch a soundblaster...aaarrghhh

this card is good, stop. i own the platinum with digital spifd in/outs too; i make music with the pc, record from hardware gear into SoundForge, CoolEdit, Golwave and other ones, make tunes, i've realized a few EPs all with this Creative, so these are all bullshits i think.

i think also that there will be better setups, but don't tell me the sound i record on my audio editors is not clear hi-fi cause i can laught in ya face: it's exacly what came out from the sound source. read good funny things about Soundblasters from some artists from Rephlex that said a lot of ironical things to transmit the concept that you can do what you want, an entire album with a Soundblaster

I love this thing. I've had it for quite a while and it's still my favorite piece of gear. Unlimited instrument capablities, great FX, all for a blow out price. Combine this with digital outs and you have the ultimate piece for anyone who wants to start making music on their computer with a minimal risk.

This freaking card rules my little world. I use this card together with my Yamaha SY 35 to create dark haunting ambient atmospheres. You can't beat on onboard sampler with this pricetag.

If you own a PC and make music with it, GET THIS CARD.

For less than 80 $, you have a 32 part, 64 voice sampler with a decent filter, plus many inputs and outputs get some Soundfonts from the net, Vienna 2.3 to make your own, and you're set

The FX are KILLER!! Seriously, its E-mu's trademark sound quality, and they're all VERY editable

Get the APSLive! drivers! They turn your 80 $ card into an E-mu APS, but with 4 individual outs instead of 8, 2 SPdif in instead of 3, and no phantom power. You also lose EAX support. But you DO get ultra-flexible FX routing on Soundfonts AND audio tracks. a full fuckin studio for 80 $ !

Mixer and soundfont setups can be saved and recalled easily (dbl click on the file)

You CAN do a full commercial track on one of these. It is the best 2-figure soundcard EVER, and KILLS most any 3-figure card on the market today. Get one. You NEED it.
