It has been quite a while since I talked to you on here.
I'm sure this question has been asked numerous times, but I'm looking for a sound card that has the least amount of latency while playing a MIDI keyboard and having the sound play as quick as possible without distortion.
I was using a Terratec DMX6Ffire Pro, but of course, it doesn't support Windows Vista, so now I'm stuck looking for a replacement.
The only recording I do is with VSTi instruments in my sequencer and occasional vocals using Adobe Audition. So therefore, I do not need a bunch of inputs/outputs. Just a sound card that has the latest ASIO drivers with as little latency as possible.
What is your recommendation?

Jul 21, 2008 06:29 pm I guess I'm over analyzing my needs. What do you recommend most...Firewire / USB / PCI. I've heard that Firewire is a better way to go as it was designed for faster transfer of large memory.

I have a Keystation 49e USB keyboard that triggers my soundblaster to play the notes, lol. Yes I know...a Soundblaster, lol. When I hit a note on the keyboard, there is a delay for the sound.
I'm looking for something strictly entry level where I have almost 0 latency and can use a wire array of VST effects and instruments. I really only need one input for recording.
Please help me!!!

But ya, the SB is the cause of the latency indeed. Even if you run ASIO4ALL it will still suffer a bit of latency.
