Topic: Sound Card Choice

    Sound Card Choice

    I am running XP, 2G of Ram, finale 2007, GPO and CMB software.

    I want to replace my Sound Blaster Live sound card. I have been looking at the following but not sure which one would be best for me:

    Sound Blaster Extreme Audio (internal)
    Sound Blaster Fatality (internal)
    Audiophile USB by M-Audio (external)
    Delta 66 by M-Audio (external)

    Does any have thoughts about them?

    Thanks, Tony.

    As a user of Creative cards, sound is good, but using with audio creation software is a big disappointment, as latency issues and so many added applications to make it work just don't do it for me anymore.

    I have used M-Audio Delta cards (internal though) with great success, but recently switched to a little known company called Auzentech (I have their Meridian sound card) who have superb sounding cards. I was happy to be able to use my tech geekness to upgrade to Burr-Brown processors for excellent analog sound (but their digital is good too). Latency has been a non-issue. They recently added a card that will be using Creative's X-fi processor (the first third party to use it). however, I don't know if that means you have to use all of Creative's bloated apps to run it...

    Can't say much about the other cards though...

    Best of luck,

    I've been using the EMU 1212M soundcard. They are around $150. This is a pretty basic sound card with 2 inputs, 2 outputs and MIDI In/Out. The inputs/outputs are balanced. The drivers have been very stable and I haven't had a crash in about 10 months of usage.

    I have used all sorts of cards on alot of machines. I really liked M-Audio's the best so far. But since I've switched to a new machine I am using Creative's SoundBlaster X-Fi (came with the machine) and it seems to do the job just fine. I don't use ANY of the Creative software with the thing at all.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
