    This is what i have.

    http://www.maplin.co.uk/5.1-usb-multimedia-sound-card-97120

    Awesome bit of kit really for the price. I use it to record mixes when im doing video mixes (normal audio mixes i record through serato). But with this i open windows movie maker, select the line in, select my webcam, and boom, records it all into a nice no fuss wmv. Before i got this i was recording into serato, and recording the video seperately then manually cutting them together. Long.

    I've got a USB Maya 44 external soundcard. Never had any problems, sound quality is good...paid about £60. definitely worth it on a budget.

    I'll go into a little detail what I need or for, also going to lower my budget to around £50, don't see myself needing to spend £100 after looking at a few soundcards.

    Will be needed to make my recording quality better for DJ mixes.

    Also i'm getting back into production so needs to have outputs for my KRK's and more importantly a headphone output.

    Been looking at this.. http://www.hifi-tower.co.uk/Miditec...-Sound-Card_i3603.htm?campaign=Preisvergleich .. thoughts?

    Or anything cheaper? Cheers chaps

    Yeah i use it with ustream, havent used mixlr but its compatible with any website that can find windows soundcards. So pretty much everything.

    Ive used it as input for chat roulette with my webcam and mixed live on chat roulette and worked perfectly. Only did it for about 2 days though... too many cocks..
