E-MU Systems has announced the new Version 1.71 software release for its 0404 Digital Audio System, adding 192kHz I/O performance to the audio interface. The E-MU 0404 was first released in July 2004 with 24-bit/192kHz converters, but originally shipped with 96kHz software drivers. Version 1.71 Software now delivers full 24-bit/192kHz I/O functionality for under $100. E-MU's Version 1.71 Software will ship in December 2004 and will be available as a free download to all current E-MU 0404 owners.
E-MU's 0404 Digital Audio System provides a host of professional features at an affordable price, including 1/4" analog inputs and outputs, optical and coaxial S/PDIF, and MIDI I/O. The 0404 offers 24-bit/192kHz A/D and D/A converters that deliver 111dB (A/D) and 116dB (D/A) dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratios. In addition to its I/O, the E-MU 0404 also features the same powerful E-DSP hardware acceleration as E-MU's more expensive Digital Audio Systems, giving you an effects processor that can deliver over 16 simultaneous hardware-accelerated effects.
The E-DSP processor frees your computer from running CPU-intensive plug-ins that limit audio performance. E-MU's 0404 ships with over 500 effects presets, and its effects architecture is fully expandable, allowing you to add more plug-ins to your system as needed. The E-DSP processor also provides zero-latency, hardware-based mixing and monitoring via the included PatchMix DSP mixer, delivering flexibility in routing audio between all of your physical and virtual inputs and outputs -- no external mixer needed.
The E-MU 0404 ships with PC ASIO 2.0 and WDM drivers, so you can use its I/O and processing power with your favorite audio and sequencer applications. And for users just getting into desktop music creation, the E-MU 0404 ships with a comprehensive software package that includes Steinberg's Cubasis and WaveLabLite, SFX Machine LT, and a trial version of Minnetonka's diskWelder BRONZE.
