    Hi All. I'm looking for the best all around sound card for recording on a PC. No more than 2 tracks at a time necessary. And more than likely, we will not be using any midi stuff.

    Any recommendations? I know the Audigy platinum pro is reasonably priced, but is it any good? Thanks much!

    I second M-Audio. Look at the Delta 44 also. Hell, look at all the cards.

    May I jump in ...

    here is the tray

    Can I get a take on this? What does the part about wdm drivers in windows really amount to? I am less than knowledged to my satisfaction regarding the driver thing ...wdm, asio and what each might mean for various systems or if their utility in certain setups might be better or worse than in some , and which was which , etc, or anything regarding this about wdm... are they useful over asio in some situations I take it?, or what might this mean?

    I was going to mention those two, but in a reverse order.

    They do have the same AKM converters but Echo are notorious for their stable and hassle free drivers.

    ASIO drivers are generally used for VST host applications like Steinberg Nuendo & Cubase SX and Emagic Logic. WDM is more applicable to Cakewalk Sonar. I have had very little to do with Sonar, but if I remember right you can use ASIO for this too.
