E-MU Production Tools Software Bundle - includes Cakewalk SONAR LE 6.3, Steinberg Cubase 4 LE, Ableton Live Lite 6 E-MU Edition, IK Multimedia AmpliTube LE and T-Racks EQ, Celemony Melodyne essential, Waldorf Attack, Waldorf D-Pole, Waldorf PPG Wave, SFX Machine LT, Creative EAX® ADVANCED HD™ ALchemy (Vista only), E-MU Proteus VX - everything you need to create, record, edit, and master is in the box.

 I/O Configuration:

  Two 1/4" Balanced Inputs
  Two 1/4" Balanced Outputss
  24-bit/192kHz ADAT In/Out (switchable to S/PDIF)
  24-bit/96kHz S/PDIF In/Out (switchable to AES/EBU)

E-DSP Hardware-accelerated Effects, Mixing and Monitoring :

E-MU's Digital Audio Systems feature the powerful E-DSP chipset, which features a hardware-accelerated effects processor with over 28 effects plug-ins (over 600 presets). This effects architecture is fully expandable, allowing you to add more effect plug-ins to your system as needed. E-DSP also provides zero-latency, hardware-based mixing and monitoring via the included PatchMix DSP mixer, delivering unmatched flexibility in routing audio between all of your physical and virtual (ASIO/WDM) inputs and outputs- no external mixer needed.
