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?

If you just want ot swing over to see vary stuff, here's a good link:
audio interfaces cards etc at musicianfriend store,
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....

goodluck'shoopin'

If you don't need Multi I/O.. use a SoundBlaster.
I have got the audigy and i use it for record the main mix.. no problem. Soundfont, firewire support...

Don't take a model with less quality than Audigy (like pci128 or other) beceause sound sucks.. (i speak only for SB card)

Good Luck

hi!
I personnally use an ECHO GINA 24.
I'm really happy with it. excelent sound, really.
96/24. 2 analog ins, 8 analog outs, adat in/out, spdif in/out. asio, wdm drivers...

kocha, I don't think sound blaster cards are good for music. I think it is most for multimedia applications.
I used to have a sound blaster card before. it was pretty good but for serious music production, it's not so good.

I use 2x audiowerk8 cards wich gives me 16physical outs. I like the cards, they sound good and work very well with logic.

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.

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.

If you have the cash and you want a high quality portable firewire card for laptop or desktop that will not let you down

For PC: RME Fireface 800
For MAC: Apogee Ensemble

I did a lot of research when looking at firewire cards and this seems to be a general consensus...

open to correction tho Smile
