Sound quality, performance, and superior driver technology are a few of the reasons that Delta audio cards have established worldwide recognition as a top choice in PCI-based digital audio solutions. With superb engineering and ultra-high quality conversion, the fidelity of the Delta 410 outperforms cards that cost many times more. The 410 offers the professional performance required by today's most popular software programs, and provides you with features like 24-bit 96 kHz recording, zero latency monitoring and digital mixing.Recordings are often put together one track at a time (a guitar solo here, a vocal there) as opposed to being all tracked simultaneously. As a result, many musicians decide to choose an audio card with fewer Ins and more Outs rather than spending money on a lot of inputs they may never use. The Delta 410's 4-in/10-out configuration is created with this type of recording approach in mind. The multi-output card is often combined with an analog mixer, allowing a computer-based recording system to behave more like a traditional analog one. Recording inputs are quickly routed to the same inputs of the soundcard via a patchbay or mixer. Outputs are sent to mixer channels or analog effects devices, allowing for an "analog studio" style configuration where signals are bussed to and from a mixer in the analog domain.
