Hi, My onboard soundcard sucks donkeyballs that have been laying in the soil for 3 weeks. So i'm looking for a good external one since I'm using a laptop, was thinking about the "AKAI EIE Pro USB audio interface" has some nice features and also midi in and out for my syntheeh. Any thoughts on that or perhaps some suggestions on external soundcards? (Also will use it for vocal and instrument recording from time to time.) Cheers.
