Sorry chaps its me again, but this forum has educated more than any book!

Im going to go out a buy a Aaudiphile sound card becouse im using a mixing desk for my inputs, Im using a small Beringher 802 mixing desk which will feed directly in to my sound card...

Will I loose any sound quality? or will noise be created?
Id rather save 70 pounds than buy the more expensive Delta 44...

Thank God for this forum

I used an Audiophile and an 802 for quite a while and it worked pretty darn good.

while Behringer certainly doesn't use the world's finest preamps in their mixers, they shouldn't introduce too much noise into your signal chain. Just make sure to watch your gain levels to keep the signal as hot as you can while not clipping. this will help you achieve the lowest noise recording that you can get out of your equipment.

Even if you did buy the Delta 44, you'd still need a preamp of some sort because the 44 doesn't have them built in. A mixer is a good way to get several preamps in one package.

I have a DElta 44 and an M-Audio Audio Buddy preamp. Now, due to lack of expansion, Im looking at a mixer as the audio buddy has 2 ins only.

A wee Behringer is what I'll be buying..just choosing the right one just now.

Good luck.
