The E-MU 0404 Digital Audio System delivers everything you need to produce audio on a PC with professional results? Pristine 24-bit/96kHz converters, hardware-accelerated effects and mixing, and seamless compatibility with your favorite PC audio/sequencer software. E-MU Systems has teamed up with the Creative Advanced Technology Center, a world leader in ASIC and algorithm development for PC Audio, to develop the new line of Creative Professional hardware interfaces that stand toe-to-toe with the most advanced and expensive audio systems in the world. I/O Configuration: Two 24-bit/96kHz 1/4″ Inputs Two 24-bit/96kHz 1/4″ Outputs 24/96 S/PDIF I/O (coaxial or optical – switchable to AES/EBU) MIDI In/Out Highlights Features pristine 24-bit, 96kHz converters and flexible connectivity with 1/4″ analog I/O, 24/96 S/PDIF I/O (coaxial or optical – switchable to AES/EBU), and MIDI I/O for seamless integration with your entire studio E-DSP 32-bit Multi-effects Processor offers you over 16 hardware-accelerated studio-grade effects simultaneously with no CPU overhead? Plug-in architecture allows you to add new effects as needed 32 Channels of zero latency Hardware Mixing/ Monitoring with super-flexible virtual patchbay? No external mixer needed Full compatibility with most popular audio/sequencer applications with ultra-low latency WDM, DirectSound and ASIO 2.0 Drivers Powerful software studio package.


Hardware-accelerated effects and mixing with high-quality I/O.

The E-Mu 0404 PCI Digital Audio Recording System is a 24-bit/192kHz* PCI audio interface that delivers everything you need to record, mix, and play back audio on your PC with hardware-accelerated effects and soft mixing. It works with all major PC audio and sequencer applications offering faultless analog and digital I/O, pristine sound quality, and all the hardware-accelerated effects, mixing, and monitoring of E-MU’s popular 1820M, 1820, and 1212M Digital Audio Systems.

I/O includes 1/4″ analog, optical and coaxial S/PDIF, and MIDI. 24-bit/192kHz* A/D/A converters deliver an incredible 111dB (A/D) and 116dB (D/A) signal-to-noise ratio. E-DSP hardware acceleration taken from E-MU’s more expensive systems gives you an effects processor that can deliver over 16 simultaneous hardware-accelerated effects. The E-DSP processor frees your computer from running CPU-intensive plug-ins to boost performance. It ships with over 500 effects presets with allowances to add more plug-ins to your system as needed.

E-DSP also provides zero-latency, hardware-based mixing and monitoring via the included PatchMix DSP mixer, so no external mixer is needed. The E-MU 0404 ships with ASIO 2.0 and WDM drivers, Steinberg Cubasis, Steinberg WaveLab Lite, SFX Machine LT, and a trial version of Minnetonka’s diskWelder BRONZE.

The 0404 PCI ships with the Power FX software update, giving users the ability to run over 600 hardware-accelerated effects as VST plug-ins for Cubase and other applications. Power FX also introduces EMU’s first expansion plug-in, with more reverb and delay effects.

*NOTE: 192kHz software available for FREE download from the E-MU website.
