Im doing a lot of work with music recently, pro tools/sibelius etc... When i playback it is never as acurate as i need/want. timing delays etc... My pc only had a hd nivida graphics card so im not entirly sure about how this will work. I want to buy a good soundcard, external is probobly a better choice for me. Im running on windows 7 ultimate and also windows 7 home premeum for both my desktop pc and my laptop. Im not 100% sure on how everything works with music hardware which im trying to learn more about. (Starting home studio with my pc and laptop) Which is a good brand to buy? Which product would i get most out of with the price? Which would you prefer or suggest in my situation? Ps: will hpefully be getting more hardware equipement for sound, eg: Pre amp and mixers etc... (Hopefully your suggestions can fall into place with future hardware too. ) Thanks.
