Default Re: Anyone reccomend a soundcard?

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.
