The M-Audio Delta 44 Digital Recording System features 24-bit/96kHz converters that are the envy of the audio card community! The Delta 44 offers the same features and high performance as the Delta 66, but is designed for the user who does not require digital I/O.

Like its big brother, the Delta 44's breakout box handles four balanced/unbalanced, +4dBu or -10dBV analog inputs and outputs. You get the same 24-bit/96kHz fidelity, industry-standard driver support, and bulletproof operation found across the entire Delta family.

36-bit Embedded DSP
All Delta cards contain 36-bit embedded DSP enabling a software-driven patchbay/router for all analog and digital I/O”all with extremely fast throughput for low-latency software monitoring. A single unified control panel provides settings for clock and sample rates, buffer sizes, individual signal levels for every input and output, and adjustable +4dBu/-10dBV pad controls. All controls are also easily accessible through most professional audio software applications for seamless integration and operation.


4x4 24-bit/96kHz full-duplex recording interface
Configured as a PCI host card with external audio breakout box
All data paths support up to 24 bit/96kHz performance, no upgrades necessary
Powerful digital mixing, routing, and monitoring capabilities
accepts balanced or unbalanced connections on 1/4" tip-ring-sleeve (TRS) jacks
Zero-latency monitoring
Analog I/O configurable for +4dB or -10dB signal levels
Includes Ableton Lite
Frequency response:
48kHz sample rate input: +/-0.3 dB, 22Hz to 22kHz

Great Unit!

By Josh Gummersall

from Seattle, WA

Comments about M-Audio Delta 44 Digital Recording System:

I got this unit 2 hours ago. I have a good amount of knowledge when it comes to computers, and installing this unit was very easy. Anybody that can install a PCI card into a computer can install this unit with ease. The sound is noticeably better than my stock soundcard was. I did a test recording from a record and the sound quality was very good. I use balanced TRS cable to connect to my monitors, and this sound card has plenty of output gain. I would recommend this unit to anybody that is looking a for a lower latency card with good A/D, D/A converters.

Low noise high quality 4 ch sound card for PCI slot

By Terry Williams

from Youngstown, Ohio

Comments about M-Audio Delta 44 Digital Recording System:

This is the second Delta 44 I have purchased. The first unit was installed in my production studio over 5 years ago ago and has been a great sound card. The second Delta 44 was installed in a Shuttle computer for use with PC DJ for night club and wedding music. The Delta 44 allows me to send MP3 Player 1 to channels 1 and 2. MP3 Player 2 is routed to channels 3 and 4. Set up is simple in both Windows XP and Vista. The balanced in/outs help to keep line and computer noise to a minimum. If you need to locate your computer away fom your mixer/mics due to fan noise you can extend the cable distance from the computer to the breakout box using a legacy style "joystick" cable. I also own a Fast Track Pro 4 channel USB sound card for my laptop. I'm sold on M-Audio sound cards.

Great investment

By unam

from sante fe, Nm

Comments about M-Audio Delta 44 Digital Recording System:

I really like this interface, the sound quality is better than the stock sound card. On a fast PC the latency is very low. its not as easy to install as a usb or firewire, but its worth the extra effort because of the faster transfer speed and better stability.On a side note, guitarist who dont have mixer will require DI box if they want to record directly into their DAW. Overall, i highly recommend this Interface.
