MAYA by Audio
Your first step into the world
of Professional Hard-Disk Recording.
- A classic soundcard / audiocard featuring
superb compatibility for your home studio.
Unlike most regular soundcards, MAYA
was designed with the musician in mind.
Today's recording/sequencing applications
and software synthesizers are extremely
powerful. With soft synths and effects
you can easily create a complete studio
environment inside your PC. But with
a typical soundcard you will have many
problems. In most cases the latency
is so high that you can't use software
synths efficiently. Also, most regular
soundcards only provide average audio
quality; microphone inputs, for example,
are often not usable for serious music
ultra-low latency: 3ms at 44.1kHz using
Steinberg's ASIO driver, and an exceptional
1.5ms using Cakewalk's
SONAR. This is the simple solution for
playing software synthesizers in realtime.
Employing 20-bit DAC (digital-to-analog
converters), 18-bit ADC (analog-to-digital
converters) as well as RCA-connectors,
the audio quality for a card in this
price range is excellent. What this
means is noise won't be an issue when
using MAYA. A special feature is the
included microphone preamp with phantom
