Terratec DMX 6Fire vs. SSL2 for ShureSM7B

I know absolutely nothing about this stuff so I just wanted to check with you which one is better.
Im planning to record some youtube videos and the mic I'm going to use is Shure SM7B. So since its an XLR mic I need some sort of audio interface.

I know SSL2 is going to work fine with Shure but I already have Terratec DMX 6Fire, do you think this will work fine?

Looking for external soundcard w/ coax inputs. Transfer DATs to Laptop

Hi I have lots of DATs I need to transfer to my laptop. I'm looking for an external soundcard that does a straight digital pass through without resampling, unless told to do so. It needs to have coax in and USB out. Please help with suggestions. I'm open to other ideas to get the music to my laptop without unwanted resampling. Thanks!

Sound card to summing mixer mixup?

Hey guys,

my friend has an 8x8 soundcard (8 ins / 8 outs) Apogeesymphony.

I plan to buy a NEV-8816 summing mixer.

The summing mixer has more 8 more inputs than the soundcard.

Is it possible to use all 16 channels when doing analog processing even if my friends sound card only has 8 inputs ins/outs?

Or would i have to upgrade the symphony to 16 in/out to use up all channel on the summing mixer?

Low Latency Sound Card (Quality does not matter)

Does anyone have a recommendation for a low latency sound card? I hoped to find a few experts here.
The quality of the sound literally DOES NOT matter, as long as the sound is recognizeable. It's main purpose is professional gaming for a rather old game.
(windows 7 / priorities are latency>price>quality)

Monitoring and mixing down LIVE (NOT "Export Mixdown")...cannot do with new soundcard

Hello all.

I use Cubase 5.5.3. I've recently switched to a new soundcard, a Native Instruments "AUDIO 6".
I used to use an RME Fireface 400 but changed because I needed something I could also use when out DJing.
With my previous soundcard, I was able to mixdown previously recorded parts, LIVE, and see the levels in my live monitoring channel. For some unknown reason, I cannot do this anymore. If I record enable the channel I want to record to, I see no levels whatsoever.
