So I've done my soundcard research and narrowed down the selection to two comparable soundcards in the same price range:
The EMU 1212M and the M-Audio Audiophile 192
Both are good cards, I'm sure of that.
What I'm mostly concerned with now are potential compatablity issues that might arrise when using one card over another - has anyone here had particular issues with one of these cards when running a certain bit of software? Are there any important features one card has that the other doesn't? Has anyone discovered some nitpicky thing about one of the cards that drives them crazy? Has anyone uncovered a feature with one of the cards that they absolutely love and couldn't do without?
Anything you guys can tell me will be appreciated. Ultimately, the responses I get here will lead directly to the purchase of one of these cards.
