SOUNDCARD HELP!

Discussion in 'Recording' started by subtletactics, Jan 31, 2005.

  1. Sorry to bring up the tired soundcard discussion. But... see I stopped building a studio, but now I have time and cashflow to build up again.


    First thing I need though is a new soundcard.


    My plan is to make beats for r&b, rap type music, and maybe even record a rock group. I don't know. I'll definitely record vocals, and use midi.

    Right now im using creative audigy 2zs platinum pro, and it sucks really bad. It can't handle 1 audio track in cubase. (crackly sound). And it lags when you get to like 4 midi tracks.

    So yes I need a new soundcard.



    stuff i have=
    PC- xp pro, cubase sx2
    m-audio bx8
    shure ksm27
    M-audio keystation pro88
    behringer mx 602a (using it as a preamp)
    monster cables
    presonus hp4
    headphones

    budget for soundcard-
    around $600- $800

    plan to get or use-
    midi/ alot of vst soft synths
    cubase sx3


    So far, I've looked and it seems like the best card is the m-audio delta1010 for its drivers...

    do you guys have any other suggestions?

    I heard emu1820m and echo layla3g arent that good.

    The Delta 1010 is a solid card that i'm sure you will like. I've heard nothing but good about the E-Mu and Echo cards though.
     
  3. yea well. I heard the drivers aren't that good. And I plan to be heavily midi based.

    M-Audio has ASIO 2 which is fairly new. Too bad M-Audio got bought out. Do any of you happen to know which company bought them?


    Anyway, any suggestion for a soundcard? A Tascam maybe?

    Do you need onboard preamps with your converters etc. If no......go RME HDSP 9624.
