Another Sound Card scenerio - Can you help?

I'm on a reasonably new PC 1200mhz and I'm composing basic tracks using Reason 2.0. I'm then recording this onto the first two tracks of my Tascam 788. I do this so I can add vocals / guitar parts, then send this back into Cool Edit.
I have a cheap SB sound card and get a faint but annoying buzz when recording out to the tascam.
I want to get a better sound card and wanted to ask which one would best suit my needs. I occaisionally just work with the spoken word too (radio comedy sketches) so something with a nice input output interface is what I'm after.
Any advice? Thanks.

Apr 11, 2003 02:48 pm If you only need to record one or two tracks at any one time (which it sounds like what you do), many of us around here use the M Audio Audiophile 2496, which rocks. It's what I use and I have no complaints at all. It's been great, and it is under $200.
But there are many others, check out "The Gear Bag" section and see what look appetizing.

Apr 12, 2003 01:44 pm As dB said, the 2496 is perfect if you are only doing 2 tracks at a time. The next step up with 4 in and 4 out would be the Delta 44. It is the card I use, along with several others here. It does not however have the digital in and out that the 2496 does.
