Is anyone using the Darla24 or the Gina24 card with GigaStudio160? I\'d like to get a new card that allows me to use GigaStudio and WaveLab 3.0 at the same time routing to different outputs on the sound card.
There\'s another thread talking about multi-client cards, so I guess this is sorta the same question. However, the Darla24 lists around $250 and that\'s more in my price range than the other high end cards like the Dakota or Mixtreme.
Well, I just purchased the card after talking with EchoAudio techsupport. They indicate that the Darla24 is indeed multi-client, and I should be able to run GigaStudio160 and Wavelab 3.0 at the same time. I\'ll let you know my findings.
Don\'t expect to use the Gina24 right away with GigaStudio160. It DOES NOT WORK with Gigastudio yet. I know cause I just bought one ($399) and it says in the manual that Nemesys needs to make a patch first, and Echo needs to finish the driver.
It\'s a nice card though. It has optical ADAT in and out for another 8 ins and 8 outs if I want to expand later...
I just bought a cheap SB Live so I can at least have multiclient functionality for now. I may return the Gina though if I find I\'m going to be waiting a loooooong time for the driver and patch update.
I have the Darla 24 and it\'s working fine with giga sampler [I haven\'t bought giga studio yet .One possible solution for tonylombardi is to take back the gina and get the Darla 24 [and some money back]. The only problem will be that you are losing the digital i/o. Well just use the SB live for the digital i/o and midi and use the Darla 24 for your 2 in ,8 out analog capabilities .
