Question regarding juli@ soundcard...

Posted on

Hello again friends,

I'm planning to upgrade my computer. Looking at a dual core processor and a Juli@ sound card.
Had a few doubts.. some may be silly.
But I know that my friends on this board are higly experienced and very helpful.
My questions are

1) I believe Juli@ has 2 inputs and 2 outputs. All 1/4" balanced jacks (1/4" TRS). If I understand correctly, Balanced here means Mono inputs. Is it possible to to record stereo through just one of these inputs, instead of the balanced mono? The cable would remain the same. Similarly, is it possible to hear stereo (Headphone out) through one of the output channels? (Referring to only the TRS channels not the RCA)

2) Does the Juli@ work, if I have another soundcard on my computer (Specifically the soundblaster sblive value). Would it cause conflicts?

3) Does the juli@ come with WindowsXp 64 bit drivers?

I hope I have posted this topic in the right sub-forum.

Thanks in advance,

The card has two inputs and two outputs (analog I/O) they can be used as two mono or single stereo, whichever you want. The card also has dual I/O in S/PDIF didigtal connections as well, plus an optical output. The analog outs can be 1/4" or RCA, it has both options.

The card has no headphone outputs, you would use a mixer or headphone amplifier for that. I have mine hooked up so the main outs go into a headphone amp and from there into the main amp/speakers, so if I need headphones I just turn on the headphone amp, if not the signal just passes thru to the main amp.

As far as the 64 bit drivers I dunno.

I understand, dB Masters.
Thanks so much for your inputs...
I think I'll find out from the ESI guys about the 64bit drivers for Juli@ :-).
From your discussions on the board, I believe you have used the card.
Was this the only sound card on the computer you used this on?

It's still the only sound card I use on my studio computer, it replaced my odl Audiophile 2496.

Ashwin, if your asking about the ability to run 2 sound cards. For example the stock card for windows sounds and the ESI card for the recording. Yes you can. You need to take special care that your recording application does not have the stock cars drivers active alongside the ESI driveers though as that can cause some problems.

But an example would be here on my older machine I run an old Sound Blaster for windows sounds and an ESI Wave Terminal 192M for the recording apps and software synth playback.

I have though on my newer machine run my ESI ESP1010 alongside the stock AC97 without having any problems. That is with the AC97 just running windows sounds. I have however completely shut down the AC97 for practical porpuses now though.

Just the answer I was looking for, Noise2U. Thank you. I asked this question coz I wouldn't like to invest on 2 different computers (one for playback with EAX FX and EAX Surround etc.. and another for recording). I'm also fine disabling one card when it is not in use. Wouldn't be using both the cards together. :-). I think I'll worry about the WindowsXP 64 bit, Windows vista drivers etc.... at a later point of time :-D... Thanks again, dB Masters and Noise2U, for your valuble inputs.

Take care,

I played around a bit with winxp64, but wasn't too happy. It didn't load a few programs I tried, and wouldn't load my esp1010 drivers. It would see the card, but couldn't find the drivers on the disk.

It doesn't seem to be worth the trouble yet, it seems to me.
