    Im looking for a sound card around the 150-200 mark and a decent mixing desk thats affordable and runs well with cubase.

    Any recommendations?

    i know nothing about desks, but soundcards, id recomend focusrites saffie 6. its what im running and a lot of guys who are now pretty big in the scene ran them (they always seem to be selling them on ebay now there getting more dollar). if your not running a soundcard at the moment the sound will be hugely different!

    Motu Ultralite. Cost bit more. but last for ever... Best AD/DA converters and full compatibility with even martian os... I have my Motu since 2007, MK1. Still working like new, and I've been around Europe with that.
