    Have a chance to grab one for real cheap including the PCI-424 card. But is it for me ?
    For recording I use alot of keyboards, my bass, and occasional elect guitar tracking.
    Along with a small amount of outboard reverb / delay units.
    Cubase 5 PC based system.
    So will I be able to plug right into it with these instruments or is an 8 preamp interface meeting more my requirements.
    Under $ 200 for the unit sounds pretty good and apparently drivers are available for Win 7.

    I saw the same ad. Find out if it's the PCIe or the regular PCI version of the card and what your computer has. Either way you'll need preamps for mics and most instruments to use the interface.

    Thanks for the reply. PCI style card.
    Doesn't make sense to buy this only to have to buy addt'l then.
    I am up'ing my inputs for all instruments. Maybe I'll just go with my original plan of addt'l Focusrite Pro 40s then

    Bought a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 for $300 so with that, all inputs are covered now.
