M-Audio etc. (AKA: Life beyond Audigy)

I'm looking to get an audio card for my computer so I can do some electric guitar, accoustic guitar, and vocal stuff. I'm not looking for anything too expansive.

I'm seriously looking at the M-Audio Delta 1010-LT because it has some pre-amp plugs for mics.

Does any have any experience with this card or have any other recommendations?

Right now I'm just running with my ASUS P4PE onboard audio.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I guess this isn't the place to ask non-Audigy questions, huh?
  2. The Delta series is very nice, plus they have a crap-load of connectors on them. As far as other recommendations, you can look at RME or Terratec for alternatives, but the RMEs are much more expensive (but better sounding), and the Terratec's are a little more commercial than M-Audio. You call. What's your budget?

  3. I'm trying not to drift north of $300 but I don't know how much of a pipe dream that is.

    Sound geeks can easily spend thousands on an extensive setup but I'm just looking to get a few decent tracks down.

    Would a more-simple card and a pre-amp be a better call?
  4. That's your call, however simpler cards are usually geared towards gaming and recreational use, and therefore are more lenient when it comes to EMI (my sworn enemy). I'd say stick with the M-Audio setup, and you won't be disappointed.
