So, I thought I'd finally settled on purchasing the E-MU 1212M sound card when I ran across a forum that mentioned the 1212M's DSP is meant for gaming (since it's a Creative card) and so is crap for musicians.
Ah, great, back to the drawing board!
So, then I start looking at DSPs on various sound cards and there are never any stats on them (at least none I understand). So, what makes a good DSP?
All I want to do is run Finale and/or REAPER through ASIO and have a decent recording session with GPO. I do not care a whit about live recording.
