Photo: Redback Media. Emu's latest audio interfaces use the Cardbus format to provide 16 inputs and outputs at prices that put many Firewire interfaces to shame However, both models have an identical low-jitter clock specification and are otherwise very similar in most respects.

Like the M, the M is a two-part device consisting of an interface card and external breakout box, connected via a proprietary digital cable terminated in CAT 5 LAN connectors. The low-noise preamps themselves are Emu-designed previous models used TF Pro circuity , and incorporate a new switchable analogue soft-limiting option to avoid clipping and for special effects when driven hard.

The third new feature is support for Emu have hinted that these might be added to the other models in a future update, but this hasn't happened to date. However, the high-impedance guitar inputs, soft limiting, and extra sample-rate options may prove more attractive to many musicians, and the Microdock still manages to cram 16 inputs and outputs into its compact case.

One pair of the M's analogue line inputs has an RIAA equalisation option for direct connection of a turntable. The 02 Cardbus card is very similar in size to Echo's popular Indigo cards, so that it only protrudes from your laptop by 1.

The cable that connects it to the Microdock is much shorter than that of Emu's models at just one metre, but I think most laptop owners will find this a handier length. The Microdock itself is slightly smaller than the Audiodock at 7. When you switch it on the Emu 'E' logo is very fetchingly illuminated in blue, and the overall effect is extremely smart. This latter option starts to operate when the input level reaches -6dBFS, and has no effect on lower-level signals. However, apart from these changes the remaining sockets and controls are largely similar to the Audiodock of the series.

After restarting my laptop I was up and running with no problems at all, with the Patchmix DSP icon on my Taskbar and with the new audio and MIDI driver options all appearing within my various software applications. Don't worry if you get a random array of indicators lit up when you first switch on the Microdock — these get initialised when you subsequently power up your laptop.

Apart from the Cardbus card and Microdock hardware blinkies at top left, and the In essence, it offers a Main Section containing master controls and inserts, aux returns, and a 'TV screen' displaying routing and FX parameters, plus a Mixer Strip Section where you can load as many or as few channels as you need, and a floating FX Palette window to drag and drop DSP effects into the various channel or master effect 'slots'.

The entire mixer, its monitoring functions, and its effects operate with zero latency, and are extremely flexible. You can save and load mixer setups as 'Sessions' for use in different circumstances, and as usual Emu provide a selection of Patchmix DSP 'Sessions' to get you started.

This this is the first Emu interface to support I did spot a few differences compared to the PCI version, the most noticeable being that there are now only 16 instead of 32 possible ASIO inputs and outputs for ferrying signals between Patchmix DSP and your audio application. Perhaps more irritating is that the Dock Out 1 and Headphone outputs carry one and the same signal instead of being separately routable as on the , so you can't for instance listen on headphones to the various individual analogue or digital outputs without affecting the main output as well.

If you want to plug in two pairs of headphones one to the 02 Card and the other to the Microdock front panel you can balance their levels using the Patchmix DSP monitor level for the first, although this will also affect the Dock Out 1 signal level, and the front-panel rotary control for the second. However, when the Microdock is plugged in, most people will only use its headphone output, in which case the Dock Out 1 signal can be left at its full level and the headphone level adjusted separately from the front-panel control.

The Taskbar icon now has a useful extra tickable 'Load FX on Startup' option that you can disable to speed up your computer boot time in favour of loading the effects only when needed. The DSP effects are, alas, still unavailable at sample rates above 48kHz, and like the other models in Emu's range, the M provides reduced numbers of channels at higher sample rates.

Overall, the Patchmix DSP mixer is just as capable as it is on the PCI models, and the addition of a good selection of usable DSP effects to take the strain from your CPU is even more welcome for laptop owners, especially for those with less powerful processors. It will be particularly useful during recording to add, for instance, reverb to a monitor mix without all the delays and overheads associated with using software plug-ins 'live'.

My customary double-blind listening tests were a challenge, since I had to run them simultaneously on a desktop and a laptop PC to hear all three interfaces Emu M, M and Echo Mia in action at the same time. However, although I could pick out the Echo Mia every time as providing a less focused and detailed sound, I simply couldn't hear any difference at all between the M and M.

This isn't surprising considering they both contain identical converters, clocks, and most of the other circuitry apart from the input preamps, and we can safely conclude that the M offers the same superb audio quality for the price as the M. The Soft Limit option in the Settings menu provides a very useful way to avoid clipping distortion with high signal levels.

The new mic preamps sounded very good to me, with an extended frequency response and sweet sound. I've always been a fan of analogue soft clipping, since as long as you're reasonably careful about your input levels the sound remains the same but you don't have to worry about the occasional harsh-sounding digital 'over'.

Emu's version of this worked well, providing warm-sounding rounding of the waveform peaks rather than harsh clipping, although I found it was still eventually possible to drive the waveform into clipping as a special effect if you drove it hard enough. My Rightmark Audio Analyser tests gave almost exactly the same results as with the M, with dynamic range of a truly excellent dBA at There's still a tiny droop in HF frequency response, but considerably less than the M at only Here is a high-level input signal before the M's Soft Limit option is activated.

On my 1. This is roughly on a par with every other PCI interface I've tested over the years, and considerably better than any USB or Firewire interface, most of which exhibit latencies of between four and 10 milliseconds on this test, jitter of half to one millisecond, and maximum jitter from 4ms upwards.

Some potential customers will be disappointed that Emu still haven't come up with the promised multi-channel WDM drivers, although they aren't alone in this Echo haven't yet provided them for their Audiofire range, for instance and most applications now support the high-performance multi-channel ASIO drivers anyway.

Here is a high-level input signal after the Soft Limit option is activated. The choice of audio interface to partner your laptop used to be fairly easy. If you wanted a basic stereo device, there were plenty of USB 1. The beauty of a Cardbus option is that it's so small and convenient, and by making the M card work as a stand-alone product, Emu will attract those who want a portable interface that can be 'expanded' when required.

Indeed, Emu have already been asked if they would sell the 02 card as a stand-alone product, and this is now a strong possibility, although I should point out that it's only compatible with the Microdock, and not the M's Audiodock. Emu's M scores on its excellent audio quality, the soft limiting, turntable preamp and DSP effects.

While the latter are closer in quality to a mid-range rack effect unit than to the Powercore or UAD1 cards, they are nevertheless extremely useful, particularly so for laptop users whose CPUs would benefit from a helping hand. Even M owners like me will be envious of the M's high-impedance guitar inputs and soft-limiting options, the more refined preamp level meters, and support for Emu have already taken this on board and are testing suitable adaptors with the intention of selling the best one from their web site.

They are also planning to release Emulator X and Proteus X upgrades for those who want more powerful soft samplers than the bundled Proteus X LE , and those who already have these will eventually be able to use them with the series as well.

I think they've got another winner on their hands! In the past a few musicians have found that the PCMCIA controller chips on their laptop motherboards caused problems with certain Cardbus audio interfaces, so Emu have done their best to check as many as possible, and have posted a list on their web site, as well as a list of compatible laptop models.
