I'm a Musician and I made the mistake in buying an audigy platinum... I think you all pretty much know its issues. I'm really looking for a relyable multi channel card, at least 4 channels. I've seen a few out there and was hoping maybe some one on the board has purchased one and could recommend it. Thanks a lot for taking the time to look over this post.

Or you could try looking around in *musical instrument* stores and if they still don't have Terratec cards ask them if they could get one in (though they'll probably make you pay a fee on top of the price of the sound card).
