“None can match its audio specification… the [M-Audio Delta] 1010 is the best sounding 8-in/8-out soundcard I’ve reviewed to date.”

“I’m sold! I can’t imagine anyone who owns a supported M-Audio interface not wanting to acquire the Pro-Tools M-Powered software. For the price, I know of no comparable DAW system that combines such high sound quality with recording and editing software of such sophisticated elegance. The combination of M-Audio hardware with Digidesign’s Pro-Tools M-Powered software can take on anything from singer-songwriter demos, to multitrack live band recordings, to Dr. Fred’s kinky high sample rate digital transfers, and produce reliable, great-sounding results with an absolute minimum of frustration and head-scratching. And, for me, making life easy and inspiring the user is what truly superior hardware and software is supposed to do!”
