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 keystation pro88
behringer mx 602a (using it as a preamp)
budget for soundcard-
around $600- $800
plan to get or use-
midi/ alot of vst soft synths
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.
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?
Avid, parent company of Digidesign, bought M-Audio.
o man, a monoply i tell you.
crap... hey can you tell your friends to help decide on a soundcard.
I don't understand.
WHERE ARE THE PROS AT?
man I'm getting the delta1010 tomorrow if no one helps me :(
More info= more help.
Do you need onboard preamps with your converters etc. If no......go RME HDSP 9624.
