I also use a Dakota with GigaStudio. It works very well. Never had any problems with latency or the like. I don\'t use it for MIDI, however, but rely upon an external MIDISport for that. The Dakota is strictly pushing audio.
There are many cards out there for Giga to choose from. As a matter of fact, I have been exceptionally busy lately testing virtually every audio interface we carry as well as USB midi with our own turn-key Giga systems. The Frontier Labs cards are definitely one of those performing exceptionally well! More to come....actually, I\'ll have that information on my own website after the new year.
