  • Equipment, esspecially audio cards

    Hi everyone,

    I have a very general question.  I am buying a new computer and completely changing the way I have my home studio set up.  I am upgrading largely because I want to start using VI MIR and need more reseources!

    The sound card I am looking at getting is a "Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP".  I like the features very much and it will allow me to get away from using a mixer for mic input and headphone monitoring.  The main machine will run Windows 7 64-bit.  I use Sonar 8.5 as my DAW.

    I would love to know what other people are using who are running a lot of VI VSTs and software and especialy what type of sound card you have.



  • I use RME Multiface 2, which is a PCI-e card with a firewire break out box. (PCI-e is the fastest connection to the CPU, in a northbridge slot). I've only ever been perfectly happy with the performance.

  • Another vote for RME Multiface 2.  I use the same interface.  It has never failed me one time ever in all the years I have used RME.  I actually owned the Multiface 1 prior to that and it's the same story.  I have owned many products and RME hands down is the most solid of my experiences.
