David, there are SO many to choose from nowdays which are pretty good. Do you want just basic card (in/out) or some multi-in/out? Do you need/want to have also midi in/out? Do you need/want any synch options. Any specific in/out, like optical digital for example? How mach do you want to spend? What's you computer system? OperSystem,RAM, Processor, available slots? <BR> <BR>If you just want ot swing over to see vary stuff, here's a good link: <BR><A HREF="http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/sid ... rch/c=4891" TARGET="_blank">audio interfaces cards etc at musicianfriend store</A>, <BR>I would not say they have best prices, but gives you pretty good overall idea, and most cards or systems there are pretty good...really hard to choose thou.... <BR> <BR>goodluck'shoopin' <BR>/Mike Zee
If you don't need Multi I/O.. use a SoundBlaster. <BR>I have got the audigy and i use it for record the main mix.. no problem. Soundfont, firewire support... <BR> <BR>Don't take a model with less quality than Audigy (like pci128 or other) beceause sound sucks.. (i speak only for SB card) <BR> <BR>Good Luck <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.kocha.fr.st" TARGET="_top">KoCha</A>
hi! <BR>I personnally use an ECHO GINA 24. <BR>I'm really happy with it. excelent sound, really. <BR>96/24. 2 analog ins, 8 analog outs, adat in/out, spdif in/out. asio, wdm drivers... <BR> <BR>kocha, I don't think sound blaster cards are good for music. I think it is most for multimedia applications. <BR>I used to have a sound blaster card before. it was pretty good but for serious music production, it's not so good.
I'm using a Videologic Sonic Fury (which is a re-packaged Turtle Beach Santa Cruz). If on a budget definately worth looking at. Here in the UK they're under £100. No serious problems but I'd strongly recommend running under Win XP as opposed to 98 because the drivers are far more stable.
I've got a Soundblaster Audigy and the latentcy is really bad. I downloaded the KX Project drivers which helped but it still isn't good. It's also worth noting that the A-D convertors on all SB cards are fixed at 48KHz so if you record at 44.1KHz you end up doing a samplerate conversion in the machine everytime. <BR> <BR>Personally if you're after a good cheap card which is really highly spec'd I'd look at the M-Audio Audiophile. They're around the same price as an SB but a much better musicians card.
