Ok, here's the deal... My brother wants to get me a nice audio card for Christmas. We were looking at some magazines and online reviews but there are so damn many out there that it is simply overwhelming. Also, my dad is giving me his old 900mhz computer that I can hopefully run this stuff on. Here are some of the criteria I have on the soundcard: Best sound quality (192k?) Only need a few tracks at a time 8 or so tracks total Don't need midi Don't need any other fancy hookups for ADAT, syncing, etc... As you can tell I am pretty clueless when it comes to this computer recording stuff. I had an Mbox but it just sounded awful. Thanks for the help!
