    FYI - I plan to buy a separate preamp in addition to the soundcard.

    I'm probably going to pick up one of the Aardvark Q10 pro cards next week. I saw your other thread also. You might want to give a good look at one too. Actually, the Q10 pro might be more than you need, if all you're doing is simple guitar/vocal recordings. A good reason for bringing this card to your attention is that I noticed you mentioned getting a preamp also. If you need it for the mics, then the Q10 will save you a step or two. Each input has a 75db boost mic pre before the A-D conversion. So, it's like an analog mic pre and not a digital one. :D Also, with this card you could take advantage of the EFR guitar input. Like I said, though, this card might be more than you need. IMHO, this is a really good "all around" card. If you want to, you can check out all the Mfg. hype here.

    But, if you have your heart set on a nice preamp, check out some of the Echo cards. Also, look at some RME stuff. HTH

    Thanks Blue!

    After reading the specs I will most likely purchase the Q10.

    With the Q10's 8 Class A preamps I can get a real drummer over here to record! (as opposed to sequences/loops)

    I hadn't checked Ardvark's products out before, I appreciate the tip!

    QUESTION: I'm setting up a dual monitor system and was wondering if the Q10's Mixer window could be left dedicated on my second monitor? If so, that would be very functional... :cool:
