Soundcards

Postby JohnMerrik » Sun Jul 15, 2012 2:19 am

Looking at getting a new soundcard to compliment my new setup....
Anyone got something new they love? I dont want to stick with my crappy maudio one... want something new.
I don't need a fucking signature...

i use a tascam 144 mk- ||
It's big, cheap (106 euros).
Works with usb.

Dislikes:
Only 1L and 1R, so ableton can have two mono channels receiving external instruments
+it's big

Likes:
It's faster than having none (i believe it's an asio driver)
It has main volume knob + headphone volume knob. I see that as a clean sound and the other wit some fx becomes a distorted sound. I not so familiar with what's on the market. I love to have a firewire mix table, though they cost like minimum 1000&

Cool, did not know you has so many hardware :D

I still never have bought a soundcard really, maybe i need to turn up the effects for the need of it. 8)

I am buying a laptop pretty soon, so i think i will be buying some external soundcard as well, preferably tiny :lol:

Have no idea what to buy yet. :lol:

My friend just got an Apogee Duet... it's small, slick, and pretty basic, but I think it would do everything I need: 2-in and 2x2-out. The sound seems incredibly clean... but unfortunately for me I think it's mac only. Also expensive... about $600 CAD, I wonder if there's something similar for windows machines?

I can definatly recomend MOTU cards!
I used the 828 mk.2 and the Ultralite hybrid mk.3
Not so good were: Alesis and Terratec
Now I just got the Traktor Audio 2 for screwing around ;-)
I am curios how it will perform 8)
