Question about E-Mu 1616M Sound Card

Open Question

A high frequency noise present on all three output channels on my E-MU 1616 soundcard. The noise is about 200mV peak-to-peak. The frequency of the noise is in the range 40kHz-200kHz according to an audio analyzer, i.e. the noise isn't audible but causes problem when modulating an FM-carrier. The noise is present regardless of sampling frequency and no matter if the outputs are assigned or not the noise is still there. I have tested with an E-MU 0404 sound card and it works perfectly. What is wrong? Please Help!!!

SOURCE: E-MU 1616. Problem installing drivers

"I am running windows XP proffessional 5.1 on a HP (compaq) dc7600.
Could this be the problem?"

It could be. Bring up your system properties box (Windows key + Pause/Break key). Is that the version shown at the top right on the GENERAL tab?

Is there some reason you have not installed service pack 2 or 3? Of course if you're running an illegal copy of Windows you can't, but I mean any legitimate reason? If we can eliminate the problem with installing the latest service packs we can move forward.

SOURCE: No sound upon installing E-MU 0404 pci card and driver

Hey ya'll.
I had the same problem with everything installed,icons on the screen etc...I took my stuff to my computer wizard and he came with the following solution which is:
Make sure that you have a Windows XP "SP2 or GREATER" this is the kicker.Go to the requirements sheet if you need more info.
Anyway I did that upgrade from SP1 to SP2 and it works like a charm with pristine sound.
Good luck fellows.

SOURCE: Emu 0404 stopped working

If you reinstall the drivers (2.1) and reboot, your sound should come back. I have to do this occasionally. Am actually trying to find out what the heck is causing the problem... reinstalls take time. But you don't need to move the card at all.

SOURCE: E-MU 0404 Soundcard no longer functions

Reinstall the software driver for your soundcard to make it work. If you have the disc, just insert it and reinstall,
otherwise, you have to download it from the internet.

Hello. i have question about soundcard e-mu 1616 (not 1616M) please answer me pls. she work with windows 7? on official site i not see driver for Win7. but on 1616M driver is exists thx


Apparently versions of the E-Mu 1616 sound hardware are still being sold, and this is now 2013. My experience suggests that E-Mu is out of business. Creative Technologies has kept the E-Mu site online, but the forms are broken, nothing's been updated for years, the forum is virtually inactive, and Support links are dead or missing. I recently couldn't even find a support contact for Creative (Soundblaster). The 1616 Microdock is a highly capable product, but its software is hard to figure out and compatibility for the constantly evolving Windows operating systems is questionable. Mine currently has stopped working with some of the software it worked with for years (using Windows XP and then Windows 7), and apparently some software (e.g. Audacity) does not support it at all. Online retailers should take this product off their "shelves."

Amp comes on running 2 12" 450 watt pioneer subs, volume only seems to be about half output, with speakers bridged


This could be the reason. If you look at the specs for this amp you will see that the continuous power out is rated for 380W bridged. The speakers rated at 450W should be able to handle close to 315W continuous. Now if you split these numbers being you have bridged these speakers, you drive each one up to about 190W continuous. The speakers are being driven approximately by 60% of the rated capability. I personally like to keep it right where you got it, not exceeding 80% of the speakers rated capacity.

Here are the specs for the AMP:
  • Specifications
  • Peak Music Power 760 Watts
  • Number of Channels 2
  • Load Impedance Capability 2~8 Ohm (Stereo), 4~8 Ohm (Bridged)
  • Continuous Power (4 ohm) 125W x 2
  • Continuous Power (2 ohm) 190W x 2
  • Continuous Power Bridged (4 ohm) 380W x 1
  • Frequency Response 10Hz ~ 50kHz
  • Total Harmonic Distortion 0.008%
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio 100dB
  • Dimensions 12" x 2-3/8" x 12-3/4"
  • Features
  • Bridgeable
  • Channel # Capability 1/2/3
  • PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
  • Screw-Type Speaker Terminals
  • Balanced Isolator Input Circuit
  • RCA Inputs 2 Channel
  • Input Level Control Hi-Volt (200mV ~ 6.5v)
  • Built-in Crossover Selectable LPF (80Hz, -12dB/Oct.)

    Dear Sir, My name is JOY and basically I am an arranger and programmer. At present , I am using EDIROL FA-66 soundcard for my programming. I think this sound card is superb and i have no problem...


    I need to know first of all what your setup is for output (you may not hear the low frequencies if you aren't running a sub, or if the sub woofer isn't configured correctly. Also check all of your output settings, including those settings for file conversions within each software used for these tracks. Another thing to keep in mind that you may also need to reinstall or update your soundcard drivers.

    *Double check all your inputs/outputs to see that they are secure.
    *Look in the control panel(s) and make sure that the equalizer settings are correct as well. It's common to experience settings to be muted in windows. You may have also blown your sub channel as well, depending on any amps/equipment you use (if you even do).

    I need an owner's manuel for a Pioneer stereo power amp SPEC-4. I have a part # ARB-235. I think this amp is a product of the 1970's. Where would I be able to get my hands on the operating instructions?...


    You can register with hifiengine.com andfind it and the service manual.

    There really isn't a lot to a power amp to be operated. This one differs from most in that it has an input level control and VU meters.

    From http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.incomesixdigits.com/spec4/spec4a.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.incomesixdigits.com/spec4/&usg=__WbFLwPqHXjFHe_P2BCKyTT9CxQY=&h=652&w=1156&sz=526&hl=en&start=2&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=5SVKh2leUGWXmM:&tbnh=85&tbnw=150&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpioneer%2Bspec%2B4%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1R2ADFA_enUS360%26sa%3DX%26um%3D1


    Dynamic 150 + 150 Watts Power Output, Generous High-power Design
    The Spec-4 employs DC construction which excludes capacitors from the NFB circuits and uses a dual transistor differential amplifier with a current mirror circuit in the 1st stage. This provides a stable operation and also high gain over a wide frequency range. The pre-driver stage is a class A amplifier circuit with a regulated current circuit for the load. This makes for high-gain amplification with superior linearity. Furthermore, there is an overdrive limiter and power limiter circuit which is designed to protect the power transistors and make for added reliability.
    The power stage employs a 3-stage Darlington pure complementary parallel SEPP circuit.
    The SPEC-4 delivers Continuous Power Output of 150 watts per channel, min. RMS, at 8 ohms from 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz with no more than 0.01% total harmonic distortion.

    Completely Independent and Perfectly Stable Left / Right Power Supplies
    The mighty power supplies are completely separated for the left and right channels. Also, each channel is provided with two 22,000uF large-capacity electrolytic capacitors and large transistors with a superior regulation. They achieve outstanding channel separation and a clear, powerful reproduced sound, in addition to the wide frequency response. There is a built-in surge killer circuit to suppress inrush currents from the power transformers and high currents which charge the electrolytic capacitors. This circuit ensures that none of the parts are affected by these adverse currents.
    Protective Circuits Composed of Fast-response Relays and Electronic Circuits
    Each channel is protected by a DC and over current detection relay circuit. In the event of the speaker terminal shorting due to poor connections or when DC current is generated in the output, the output circuit is immediately disengaged and the speakers and transistors are safeguarded against any possible damage. The protective circuits also function as muting circuits when the power switch is turned on and off.
    Peak Level Meters with Outstanding Waveform Response
    This power amplifier incorporates logarithmic compression peak meters with a wide scale (-40 -+3dB). With 8-ohm speakers, they allow the output to be read out from 0.01W to 300W. Moreover, the meters feature a fast response for peak signal indication. In addition to the peak output reading, it is easy to interpret the dynamic margin with respect to the SPEC-4’s clipping level.
    Input Level Controls with dB Calibration
    The SPEC-4 is equipped with input level controls with direct readout attenuation values (-dB). These can be used to continuously adjust the input levels for each channel in accordance with the rated output voltage of the preamplifier. In this way, the SPEC-4 can perform the proper gain control according to the preamplifier’s output level. The preamplifier will thus be used in the condition possible for the best S-N ratio and distortion characteristics.
    Stylishly Professional Front Panel Design
    Just as you would expect from a sophisticated system, the SPEC-4’s front panel is professionally designed with the large level meters in the center. Also. The front panel’s dimensions allow the model to be mounted in an EIA standard rack, just like real professional-use amplifiers.
