Ok, when it's working the sounds on the ews64s are impressive but this rarely seems to be the case. I've been using this card with Cubase VST and it seems to have a mind of it's own...there is no way of telling when the audio and midi will simlpy cut out. To date the problem still persists and. If Pete Townshend has an electronic alter ego then I'm slowly turning into him. Any help or ideas on this gratefully recieved. I'm affraid for this reseaon the card gets a definite thumbs down!

I was fascinated to play any audio event with a keyboard and a computer. If I decided to get a sampler so I had to buy a mixing console and a multitrack recorder/card , too. But I could not affort that. So I heard from a audiocard Terratec EWS 64 XL. Proffessional sound quality, sampling option, digital ins/outs, multi effect processor and included wave and instrument editor was announced. So I bought my EWS in the summer of 97. I installed it in few minutes and was very pleased by the playback of my waves and mp3s. Two weeks later I sold my cd player, I did not need it any longer. Then I bought a 32 MB RAM modul to expand the sampling size to play vokals, drums and selfmade instruments with my keyboard. But the Edison sample editor was still not available. Only in summer of 98 there was a valid version of Edison. First I was disappointed by this delay but now everything is alright and runs stable under Windows 98. I produce music only with my computer (Pentium III, 500 Mhz, 128 MB RAM), this card, my keyboard and Logic Audio. I can do everything in a proffessional quality without big financial trouble. Of course I do not understand each chanal strip or others, but I use exactly the adjustments I need to get along. Most of the faders and presets you never use (I don't know by now what a codec is). I think in the future there won't be any outboard devices like samplers, effect devices or multitrack recorders. Everything will work in one computer with several big monitors. The cpus, hard disks, RAMs are getting much larger and cheaper, so good music can be made by everyone. The EWS 64 is just the beginning of a new age of electronic music production.

we had to install our EWS64S (with R extension) 3 or 4 times last year before it would work reliably. Now, thankfully it is behaving with the latest firmware upgrade and it fairly stable. As a audio device it is good quality - as good as you are going to get anywhere *inside* a PC. The control panel / mixer resets itself for no apparent reason occasionally and audio often plays back at the wrong sampling rate requiring a PC reset to fix the problem.

Overall, it is a good value card, and the Microwave PC option looks very attractive as an add-on to the XL version. The reliability is a problem, though, despite helpful technical support from Terratec ( Great when it works.
