They aren't the best, but they are cheap (I couldn't find a cheaper external USB card) and for what he wants it for he won't notice its drawbacks.

I've always heard that SB cards are the devil's work; poor ASIO implementation, poor ADCs, recording only at 48KHz etc... has this changed? (or was I even correct in believing this in the first place?)

The primary problems with the original SB Live were indeed that the EMU10K worked only at 48KHz, it didn't *have* any ASIO implementation and the drivers were very poorly written. The DACs and ADCs on it were/are fine, but the problem was that unless you were recording at 48KHz, the drivers resampled on-the-fly, leading to noticeable artefacts in the recorded signal.

For what Mr. 5 wants it for though, an SBLive'll be fine.

Just to clarify it's the external USB one you want, not the internal PCI one. It's about £38 retail, SB MP3 + USB that I linked to above - it's either that or trust Mr5 with the screwdrivers... :sob:

Does the SB MP3+ have multiple outs? I didn't think so... could well be wrong...

Niki, most computer stores flog this stuff - but let's make sure we've got it right before you part with any cash!

J - I've got access to trade warehouses like Ingram Micro and Wstore coz of me company (cheeper than the highstreets :Grin: )- they don't mind me ordering stuff thru thier account.. just need to know manufacturer and product name..
 
glad to hear it, coz he's not given me the money for it yet..
 
Hi - I have an aluminium Apple Powerbook G4 and a M-Audio Transit external USB soundcard - does anyone know if I can use this combination with Traktor DJ Studio, monitoring with the internal soundcard, using the Transit for the main output?

If it's the same on the mac as the PC then they have removed the capability to use 2 soundcards...much to the annoyance of Traktor v1 users who've upgraded it seems.

There are plenty of good alternatives to Traktor though (on the PC at least - not so sure about the mac).

The transits a great little card though isn't it

You can use the DirectX ASIO drivers to use Traktor 2 with 2 soundcards - just make sure they're both enabled in the setup dialogue box (will post up a screenshot when I get home).

Native Instruments don't as a rule recommend it, but it can still be done. Of course this method is no less flaky than Traktor's original twin-soundcard support.
