Supports both USB1.1 + USB2.0 on PC - MAC compatibility requires USB 2.0
** When connecting the 0404 USB to a USB 1.1 port on a Windows PC, performance will be limited to 16-bit and 44.1/48kHz recording and playback. Macintosh support limited to USB 2.0 ports only. (this would mean to use it with a powermac g4 you would require both Mac Os X & an addon usb 2.0 card to plug it into if your g4 is os9 bootable, if not your mac may already support usb 2.0 with its native built in usb ports)

Emu 0404
USB 2.0 Audio Interface [Mac & PC]

Emu's first USB 2.0 interface, and their first to offer Mac OS X compatibility, dispenses with DSP effects and complex software front-ends, majoring instead on hands-on controls and practical studio features. Have they hit on a winning formula?

EMU-USB driver
OSX driver for Creative Labs EMU USB

Tested on Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave. It reportedly works fine also in Catalina.
All sample rates are supported both for record and playback: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz
I can only test on EMU0404 USB as I have no other EMU devices. But users reported it works also on EMU0202, EMU0204 and Tracker Pre USB.
Midi support.
