Well here I am again... the rest of my DAW parts is coming in a few days. I've spent most of my money on the computor and the software so I really can't spend too much money on the soundcard right now.... So I need some advice here: I'd still like to work with my ADAT and outboard effects on my Mackie SR24.4 ,so I need a soundcard with at least 8 in /outs. ( not too expensive) I've been thinking about two alternatives: I could buy M-Audio delta 1010 LT or I could go for the RME -Hammerfall LE ( and use my ADAT XT20 as AD/DA converter) What would probably get me the best sound and latency ? ( and runability of course) Or is there any other soundcard I should look into? (~500 USD is the limit) I'd be very grateful for any opinion about this... maybe someone has got some good or bad experience with these soundcards. Is the AD/DA converters better on the M-Audio 1010 LE than on my ADAT XT20 ? I'm going to use this on this DAW ASUS P4B 533-V CPU Intel Nortwood 2.4 GHz 512Kb 533MHz DDR 512 PC2700/DDR333 cas2.5 Seagate 80 GB (OS) WD 120 GB 8 Mb cache (wav) Win XP-Pro Finally I'm going to run Cubae SX and Logic and some Native VST-instruments. Any thoughts ...?
