Hi all! first time posting here so go easy on me was just wondering if someone could help with a dilemma of mine... Recently, my Creative X-Fi Platinum refused to record anything from the mic (SM58) without clipping/distortion: After performing various tests with different mics/cables/drivers and a clean install of XP, I decided the microphone capabilities were probably busted. So, I decided to get a new soundcard or interface to either replace the X-Fi, or be used alongside it just for recording vocals. I've been recording in Adobe Audition in 192khz, so whatever option I go with, I still need the 192khz support. After doing a bit of research, the EMU 0404 USB looks pretty good (and everyone seems to love it around here) but would I get better vocal recording quality from say, an M-Audio Audiophile 192 combined with an M-Audio DMP3 preamp? Cheers!
