Hi all, i'm looking for a bit of help with choosing the right set-up for my Music Producing orientated PC.
Need suggestions for decent not too pricey sound cards preferably with PCI-E X1 & a Midi port on it.
My current motherboard is a gigabyte one GA-G31MX S2 mATX
I'm running Windows XP SP3 due to not wanting to leave all my old production stuff behind, most of it was created on windows xp & quite a lot of the VST's don't work with vista unfortunately.
I've heard a lot of bad things about 'Creative' cards so i'm not interested in those unless there is one that outshines other competition.
If i can't find one with PCI-E X1 & midi together then please just recommend an individual PCI-E X1 sound card for audio out/in etc
& a separate suggestion for a decent Midi sound card
I have looked myself obviously but i'm calling on help of other people that also do music production and have a good set-up & those who know a lot about Sound cards/Midi/PCI-E X1 on the market today
The card i have my eye on atm is the M-Audio Audiophile Sound card - 96 kHz - 24-bit
looks like it is what i'm looking for but again, need help.
I have googled lots & lots & i am still none the wiser.
Thanks in advance
