Anyone reccomend a soundcard?
 
'Sup everybody?

Well it was my birthday on the 20th, and I got about 120 in money from relatives and such, and I'm thinking about buying an external soundcard for recording with. I have cubase 3 SX and Ableton Live 6, but there are so many soundcards out there and I'm not really sure what I should go for. I'm looking for a USB connection and about 4 inputs.

Thanks guys, happy new year and such.

Hum... USB with four inputs. As far as I'm concerned I'd stay away from anything that is USB unless you are only recording one track (maybe two) at a time. For anything else, go for Firewire or PCI.

I have to be honest though - for 120 I think it would be better to save up some more, I'm afraid you won't get anything very good for that money (that I'm aware of). Even the okay/decent gear like the Presonus Audiobox (USB, 2 I/O) is already about that price. I recently bought myself a Presonus FP10 (Firewire 8 I/O) just to record demos and mess around. It's one of the cheapest converters of its type and that was already about 370€ (approx 340).

With audio gear you have to keep in mind that you get what you pay for - the more expensive, the better.
