I'm looking for a quality soundcard for doing light recording, it doesnt need to have multiple inputs but that would definitely be nice
I would LOVE to have an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard
(4 inputs- rca and midi)
but i run vista home premium 64 and M-audio still doesnt have drivers available (they have a beta version but id rather not go through the hassle of signing up for it and buying the card if its still buggy)
price range is under 100.00
i only really need stereo output, but i dont mind a good recomendation with 5.1/7.1
There's some choices. Due to the extremely good experience I've had this year with Creative's 64-bit drivers I'd probably go with that $100 Fatal1ty Titanium, especially if there's any gaming to be done now or in the future.
Instead of the Creative consumer cards there are the Emu cards. You may be able to find a 1212m for your price range or the 0404 would be cheaper. Both have drivers for XP and Vista 64 and you may find a decent software bundle.
Should be able to find plenty of reviews and discussions on them for research.
