First of all apologies if I posted this in the wrong place. A friend has an Ensoniq Interface 442 he doesn't know what to do with and wanted to know if I want it. Does anyone know if it only works with the Paris software, or can it at least act like an AD/DA by itself?

It has 4 1/4 ins, 4 1/4 out, clock and SPDIF so it seems like maybe it would work just as an AD/DA unit.

It will not work as a standalone. It needs both the PCI card it connects to installed in a computer and the Paris software to function.

Second that, you will need an EDS1000 PCI card, the connecting cable and PARIS software to run it, the software is available PACE free now. The PARIS software installs the drivers, currently working great on Win 7. Win 8.1 and Win 10 users have reported it working but I can only personally speak for Win 7.

I will also add that Mike Audit has ASIO drivers, soon to drop, that allow PARIS hardware to be used with all the new DAW's down to 64 samples recording 16 tracks.
I'm currently beta testing and I run PARIS hardware with Studio One, Live 9, Reaper 5, Wavelab, FL Studio & PT.
