The first is how much money you want to invest in this device. If you want to play a little sound, save a few demos things, without thinking, I will consult the famous SBLIVE card (or one of its modern reincarnation). This is the best semi-professional card ever made! Often jokes with his friends say that I was happiest when I worked on this tab. It has excellent sound for its price, and with it you can learn a lot. So I warmly recommend this card to anyone who wants to enter the world of audio production. Its price is around 20-30 euros. Now we cross the main thing. If you want a real professional sound card, there is a different situation. You must learn well the card you intend to buy, because as always, it is written on paper can significantly differ from the actual performance. Consider what you need, but think about what you get for your money. At the professional sound card you pay the quality of the converter on the card, the number of input-output, software and applications / effects that come with it, its integration into the VST system, drivers the manufacturer for the delay (latency), and of course, the name and reputation of the manufacturer. I can not tell which card is best for you, but let's say I have decided once for Cream ware Luna II sound card. From the entrance / exit, there is the following: Analog In, Analog Out, MIDI In, Midi Out, Z-link and S / P-DIF In / Out. Famous for her older (and more expensive) brother-Cream ware Pulsar.U Basically, these cards have the same quality conversion, but there are twice as Pulsar DSP chips, more entrances and with it comes a set of effects. The reason why I have decided for the manufacturers is as follows: Cream ware is known for its integration into the VST environment, which means that this card will work in Cu base with no problems. Furthermore, Cream ware has an extremely high-quality software that you can connect the all-you will get your little virtual studio. Which considers a small number of inputs, expansion rack can be purchased for Luna, and get 16 inputs / outputs. I mentioned yet that this expansion will cost nearly a whole card, and it can be a problem for people who deal with home recording. Cream ware digital conversion is an excellent signal is clean and professional. What more to say-what you send in your computer, Luna will record and play, it will improve quality of the recorded sound.
Finally, the Luna comes with a standard set of effects, which can be used in the VST environment. Finally, Luna has 3 DSP chip using (only) for its effects that come with njom.To means that the processor will not be charged, but the effects that came with Lunom be processed on the kartici.Mada, there is ograničenje.Na Luni There are only 3 DSP chip, which gives the work a real option of using only 3-4 main effect of the Lune. On the other hand, I personally do not use many of these effects, because I still think that the VST effects better, so I do not smeta.Na this end I would mention that all Creamware products compatible with each other, so you can have 2 free pulsar and a Luna in the computer, everything will work without problems, and DSP chips will operate as if they were on one card. Apart from Creamware, my favorite is (again), the German manufacturer RME. He adapted to the market in recent years of home study, and the cards are now available to many producers. Their site is located on the www.rme-audio.com and see it and judge for yourself. In addition, the market is also an American competitor M audio delta 1010 with their cards, which are also popular here. Their website is located at www.m-audio.com Here I put forward just let your experiences with the cards, but tastes and needs are different, and suggest to visit our music store, but see the information on the Internet. As I said, when buying music on the card looks: the quality of the converter on the card, the number of input-output, software and applications / effects that come with it, its integration in the VST system, the manufacturer driver for the delay (latency) and of course name and reputation of the manufacturer. Do not immediately find a cheap sound card with a lot of input that can record 24 / 96 (24-bit 96 kHz) for calculate: divide the price of the card with the number of inputs, the price decline effect that you get and then see how much one input on your sound- Unfortunately, it will be sound and quality. Think carefully before buying that your needs are, because it makes no sense to buy sound cards with a variety of inputs such as if you'll take just one keyboard and voice. Also suggest that you look at the web-site how often he betrays the "update" software for your card. I hope you this guide at least partly explain the items when buying your sound card.
