There\'s many inexpensive Giga compatible soundcards with 2 Analog in/out.
I have Delta Dio 2496 myself, and it works very well. Even better would be new M-Audio
Audiophile. Newcomer by Echo Audio is MIA!
It\'s very interesting card and should suit
very well for you. Also, Terratec have new
card: EWX 24/96!
Egosys Waveterminal 2496
Hoontech SoundTrack Audio DSP24 Value
M Audio Audiophile 24/96
RME Digi 96/8 PST
Terratec EWX 24/96
Echo MIA - less than $250 retail - Soundcard not released yet
- 2 in & 2 out (1/4\" TRS connectors, balanced +4dBu), 8 virtual outputs with DigMix, SPDIF, beta Win 2000 drivers.
Egosys Waveterminal 2496 - $429 - A bit expensive but the new drivers coming soon will be very good.
Hoontech SoundTrack Audio DSP24 Value - $178 retail - Soundcard release Dec 2000
- 2 in & 2 out (RCA connectors), MIDI, AC97 codec, SPDIF, beta Win 2000 drivers. New good drivers will come soon, (MIDI, SPDIF optional)
M Audio Audiophile 24/96 - $230 retail - Soundcard released in Nov 2000 ??
- 2 in & 2 out (RCA connectors, peak in/out +2dBV), SPDIF, MIDI, DigMix
RME Digi 96/8 PST - $545 - Expensive with many features for external digital connections.
Terratec EWX 24/96 - 399 DM retail - Soundcard released in Nov 2000?
- 2 in & 2 out (RCA connectors, switchable +4dBu/-10dBv), SPDIF, ($29 MIDI optional), DigMix.
I plan to buy the Echo MIA, because of good drivers and +4dBu inputs.
I really like the Hoontech and M Audio cards too.

This seems like a fairly active thread with lots of folks getting decent results for giga.
Would anyone mind doing a cut-and-paste job on this survey and posting it? I would greatly appreciate it.
the survey is:
-processor (ie PII, PIII, Athalon, etc.)
-chipset (ie BX, Via kt-133 )
-hard drive(s) (use SCSI?)
-BIOS settings (i.e. - turning off USB, -memory latency, etc.)
-Midi Input Card
-recording system - hardware/software
-sequencing system - hardware/software
-polyphony (# voices achieved)
-sound quality (1-10) -other problems/comments
-midi performance (built in/stand alone/win 2k ect.)
THIS would help out the bottom dwelling scum like me trying to figure out what system to get BEFORE I shell out the pesetas.
PS if you want to see how the survey was born, check out the thread \"AND OUR SURVEY SAYS\". Or maybe you already checked it out (I have a knack for coining obnoxious thread names). In any case, please spill your guts
PPS: if something doesn\'t make sense to you or youre not sure of the answer, or you just don\'t feel like digging out that information from your box, just leave it out...m\'Kay?
