I recently did some guitar work for some Acid guys and found that I like it and want to use it in my facility. They want me to get it as well. I have a Toshiba laptop with 128meg memory and would really appreciate any recommendations for a soundcard of very high quality. I'd be willing to use outboard converters. Minimum of 2 but would like 8 channels because of some killer drum apps I'm hearing about. I'd also like to sync it up to a Panasonic Da-7 with mmc if that's possible. I'm new at this and would really appreciate any help. Thanks.
