Hi, I'm currently using a Dell Inspiron 700m with the Echo Indigo I/O, Art Tube MP preamp and a Shure SM58 to record children's speech samples for a research study. The output quality is satisfactory for the purposes of the study. I am looking to upgrade my laptop, but unfortunately, the models I've been looking at (e.g., Dell XPS 120) do not include a PCMCIA slot but an express card slot instead. So what I would like to know is the following: 1. Does anyone know if there are any PCMCIA to expresscard adapters that would allow me to use my Echo Indigo I/O card in expresscard slots? 2. Are there expresscard sound cards with equivalent quality to the Echo Indigo I/O? 3. Are there all-in-one USB/expresscard/firewire solutions in addition to the M-audio Mobilepre USB that would give me equivalent quality at about the same price range (i.e., $200)? Any other comments/input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
