I have this lousy integrated soundcard, and I’m a total noob regarding those.
Can anyone recommend a cheap and decent card or a class of cards? What I’m looking for is ASIO support, low sound delay and if possible low noise when recording.
I considered getting an external one, cause I understand they are less prone to interference from other components of the computer. Is this true and is it worth the extra clutter? My PC is a sprawling mess of cables already!
Frankly to my untrained ears the integrated trash that I have sounds just fine already. Perhaps you only notice the difference once you have a good soundcard, but I’d hate to think that my skills have improved just because my card makes it sound nice! Does this kind of thinking make any sense?
Only hardware I plan to use with it are a mic and MAYBE a midi keyboard (cause I think playing on a regular keyboard is kinda cool in a hardcore way).
Please help, cause I’m reluctant to dish big bucks for a soundcard before I really get into making music.
On the other hand, is there a card that works especially well with Renoise, and if there is, in what way?
I’d think about spending an extra buck if it makes my experience with Renoise much more enjoyable.
Thanks in advance.
