The DSP24 Value is our very affordable professional 24bit/96kHz recording solution. This card is probably the most affordable 24bit/96kHz recording solution on the audiocard market today. The card is based on the hard- and software of the existing and sucessful DSP24 series of products.

DSP24 Value is no longer available and has been replaced by the even more advanced ESI Juli@.

Together with Logic SoundTrack 24 from Emagic the DSP24 Value is the optimal product for your first step into professional digital recording. The card supports 24bit at 96kHz with excellent audio quality and perfect frequency response. Two analog input and two anlog output channels with RCA connectors open a wide range of connection possibilites in home and studio envrionments.

The device driver provides the same professional functions of our other DSP24 series products: perfect support for Windows 9x/Me and Windows 2000/XP including functions like ASIO 2.0 and GSIF (with multiclient-support) allow you to use the card with all common audio applications. With the low latency of just 2ms (at 96kHz and 5ms at 44.1/48kHz - or even lower values under Windows 2000/XP on fast systems) the DSP24 Value is perfectly optimized to be used with modern software synthesizers (such as GigaStudio or VST/DXi-Plugins) because you can play your sounds in realtime now. You can even use effect plugins (DirectX or VST) in realtime.

With the included AC-97 Codec and it's DirectSound support you can even replace the basic functions of a normal soundcard.

The optional DSP24 Value Bracket provides digital I/O connection possibilites (S/PDIF optical & coaxial) as well as one MIDI I/O port.
