RO is putting together a new feature ... "Best Bang For The Buck DAWs". It's a basic guide, for newbies and intermediates, to help them put together the best DAW to fit their needs and budget. We have it about 75% complete at this point, but need a little help with a couple of things. I thought that this forum would probably be the best place to get the help needed... So far, we have 2 sets of nearfield monitors that we are recommending (keep in mind that these are "budget" systems), the Roland MA8BKs ($99 pair), and the KRK V4s ($600 pair). We need GOOD recommendations for monitor's which fall in-between those prices. (If you mention Alesis you will be banned from RO for LIFE ... LOL). Anything decent for $300-400 a pair? For sound cards in our lower-priced DAWs, we are recommending the Echo Mia ($200), and the M-Audio Delta 1010-LT ($400). Does anyone have any other good recommendations for sound cards in this pricerange?
