Hi there am looking into upgrading my sound card and would also like to have the capabily to record my guitar into the pc.
I have a budget of around £125 and so far have looked at creatives either audigy 4 or audgiy 2 platium pro both with the breakout box as I don't have a spare bay slot to put the front panel in. Yes they are both slightly over budget at about the £150 mark.
Was having a look again earlier today though and came across a device called the M-audio fast track USB which for the money comes in at around the £65 quid mark looks like it may well do the job of allowing me to record my guitar. Having had a look at reviews for this device though there seems to be a bit of a mixed bag some love it some hate, so was wondering if anyone on here had heard of it or used it?
Also if I did end up buying this then what would be a good PCI sound card to buy for the other £60 as ideally would like to upgrade the onboard sound.
Or is it just better to stick with the creatives lab solution?
or has anyone else got any other ideas / recommendations
