Im looking for a new Audio Interface to replace chepoid Soundblaster Live 24. Im looking for 6 inputs to combine to 2 stereo outs (1 for headphone). I drew a line in the sand with Delta Lite to compare to. The Layla is $414 new w/factory warranty (haven't seen used price). The Delta Lite is $240 new w/factory warranty (no rack panel but cable dongle) (best used in about $160). Both are PCI do the about the same functions but Layla does have - 2 auto sensing XLRs, - headphone output, - rack section, - balanced TRSs - better dynmaic range by about 10db - DAW software Traction - and has brand name and reputation. M-audio has good rep but not pro material and no DAW but has solid drivers I hear. Im looking for a good reason to justify the +$175 difference in cost as the Layla is sexy and quality (and thats me all over. Anything you can offer to support one or the other. Does Layla have better software or something?. I think it comes with Traction DAW. I use Power Tracks Pro (cheapie) and just got Adobe Audition and wouldnt mind taking the software plunge to a new DAW if worthwhile. Any opinions are appreciated! Thanks!
