    I personally like the Creative SoundBlaster Live or Audigy series, a friend of mine has the MAudio cards, those are pretty amazing aswell, but really when it comes to cards, pick one of those two.

    Don't get an Audigy (piece of shit without true full duplex 24bit, but its gotta remote control [fucking whoop]) go get a Midiman Audiophile 2496 or something else from the Delta series.

    But what do I know this is my 1st post :)

    Wavelab, Sound Forge or Cool Edit for recording.

    I prefer wavelab as you can use plugins in realtime.

    Audigy is a gaming and multimedia market card. For music, the card is pretty colored in sound to give the average home user the "better" sound.

    The front bay/ port thing? if you're gonna make music then you're gonna be using a mixer right? so just plug that direct into the card (has phonos) don't need that crappy port now :)

    and the audigy is locked to 48khz (doesn't support 96khz audiophile does)
    Audiophile has an internal 36bit digital mixer, supports consumer or -10dbv, Bit-for-bit digital transfers.

    heh! I'm not flaming audigy's there cool esp for gaming but the audiophile is better for music making. If u have a choice go for the audiophile.

    :banana: :crazy:

    Personally the Audigy ZS series looks to be pretty promising, but I mean if yer so anal about sound its not even funny and if you wanna spend money and spend it right go with Maudio apparently.
