TERRATEC EWS88 MT

Wicked news... another 8-in/out soundcard coming to the fray... This ones from Terratec, makers of the EWS64 serie and a few other items, and this looks like a massive winner for them - on the usual proviso that it interacts ok with proprietry s/w's ok - (we'll rule out vst shall we??) ha hah - no - sorry - chuckle - they say it has ASIO drivers - ok then....

ok.... it's a busmaster card... 24 bit/96k compatible... with switching for the 8 RCA phono in's/outs allowing you to select -10dBV /+4dBu... nice and compatible with any studio from a higher-end mixer to a small 8 channel jobbie for home... nice...

what else... well, it comes in 2 parts... The pci card busmaster card... which also has (praise the L-ord), midi In/Out... you also get a nice likkle 16bit/48k stereo monitor out from mini-jack that may be very useful to you in a mixer/multi setup it definitely would be a nice inclusion, despite the dreaded mini-jack connector....AND S/PDIF... !!... yip-fuckin-pee for that one - at the retail price it's almost like it's been added for free... and yup.. the s/pdif is also 24/96 compatible.....

Terratec claim this card as well as being a wicked product is more efficient for your system, relieving the host CPU, from having to do 24-32 bit conversions on the incoming audio as the drivers do it for you... they say that 32 bit data gets sent down the pc buss more smoothly than 24 bit, and this relieves cpu work ...

What else... well as it's 5.25" it's desined to either fit in a drive-bay where you connect and internal cable to the card... or.... it's stand outside, and they give you a nice long multicore cable too at 2.5 meters - that's good...cos often these connectors are a tad short, like on the Event cards...... there's lots more in fact, like hardware meters... and it being truely full-duplex... all the in's & outs can work at the same time, and you get a s/w mixer/utility with it too that allows you to set levels, change rates, and also allows you to save an entire setup for the card/system for later recal... nice touch that....

yup- there is lots more... i gotta get one tested !! ... Simon at Terratec did promise me a full EWS/microwave system to try out ... i'd better get back onto that now the DT site is finally finished -remake contact and get it sorted....... but suffice to say, at the listed RRP of a measly 399 in the UK, this will be a killer product for Terratec, cos despite the ever escalating PC power available, and the smarter s/w's that allow in-pc production, I don't think Terratec have left it too late.... the seperate out market will be around for a LONG time - it's so creative to work hands on with a mixer..... nice one Terratec.... here's the spec's....

Hmmm, does it use the EWS soundbanks too, for sampling or is it 'just' an audio-card?

just a multi-out/in audio only - there is no sampling or synth in this system - i guess you could compliment it by adding the EWS64XL package

I work at radio station. We're looking for pro yet cheap cards. This card sounds the dopest of them all. You can daisy-chain up to 4 together in one PC. I know, I know the Yamaha DSP factory kills all. But doesn't it only do 48khz? That sux. I think if you want profesional quality you need 96khz. Yall should check out TerraTecs sampler and synth cards. I think I'll get them all.

.... arghhh....Terratec = Terrortec.

Maybe the EWS88MT is a good piece of hardware, but I have made such bad experience with Terratec-gear and Terratec support so I wouldn´t purchase any products from that company in future.

Get a look at Midiman Delta 1010. Its not as cheap as EWS88MT, but really well designed, good support and rock stable drivers. Even for WIN2000.

Had the Terratec 4 about 2months and it is an absolute bargain - latency on Athlon 750 with 128mb SD RAM @ 12ms. Actually thinking about getting another one, maybe the 88D with a converter just in case i go ADAT in the near future.
The hard disk recording quality is absolutley superb and above all its a bargain if you need more than 4 ins/outs.

Hmm, what about the software and drivers
included. I used to have the EWS64XL and
terratech promised soooo many thing that
they NEVER delivered. It was a very
painful experience with an otherwise
(spec\s wise) good and very promising
soundcard.... So inform us what have
they delivered in term of software..
does it work the way is supposed

I totally agree. I got the EWS64 in 1997, and I had to wait OVER A YEAR before the sampling software was ready. As far as I'm concerned, that has to be against trading standards regulations, because it was advertised as a sampling card, and it clearly wasn't. When it finally came out, the software was confusing, and the documentation poor anyway. The mixer app has to be the biggest headf**k s/ware I have ever used.
Confused? It was like 20 blind lesbians in a fish market. (sorry - bad joke.) By all accounts the MT is a good product, but it would have to be absolutely stunning before I'd buy Terratec again.
