Hello, I've been searching all over for info on soundcards... Specifically, reviews an/or comparisons of cards like the pulsarII. First off, I am using a tascam us-428 for sound and control surface. Ever since I've had it though I have had no stability. Just about any sound that comes through it is riddled with pops and drop outs. At the same time I am planning on treating my self to a new synth. I am an admitted synth addict. I'm looking at synths along the lines of nord lead 3, virus c, maybe alesis andromeda (kinda expensive), etc. I have several synths, but I simply must have more! So cre@mware's pulsar II has been recommended to me because it comes with something like 10 different synths plus all kinds of effect, mixers etc. I would usually scoff and go about buying another "real" synth, but with the current problems I'm having w/ us-428 I'm inclined to go with it... My questions are: Does anyone here own the pulsar II or comparable card? What are your opinions on them? Any problems or conflicts? What are comparable Dsp/synth/sound cards if any? Is there a site somewhere with this info. (It has eluded me if so) Any comments or guidance would be appreciated!
