True, Motu wins my vote, although sometimes using just a cheap box by M-Audio just to get your audio away from channeling directly through the computer helps tremendously. If you can’t afford a premium interface, just having something that gets the audio out of your computer via USB or Firewire will make a world of difference. .

I use RME Fireface 400 at home and RME Fireface UFX at the studio. They are both great.

Heck ya man. What is your latency? You connect to your computer through firewire 400 right?

Avid make a USB interface 6in/2Midi/Spdif in/out/3 stereo outs called a Fast Track C600. It has two stereo preamps and allows you connect 3 sets of monitors. It also has integrated transport controls and a programmable multi-function button. For tracking, it has built in reverb for the player’s cans while allowing dry output for recording so 2 headphone outs.

I bought it to use with Pro Tools and so far no probs except for a little noise below -75dB on some setups. I use it with midi mostly.

I mention it because it seems to have been just discontinued and you may get a deal. It is currently $AUD300 here.

For the last two years I was completely happy with my Roland Edirol UA25 EX. Did the job perfectly, never had trouble with it. It is also quite a solid piece of hardware. I had to take it on the road, while I was employed by some theaters to create some music…dropped it even a few times :) and still never failed.The main reason I want to upgrade is mainly because 2 inputs are not enough anymore.

If you are on a Mac, then Apogee is hard to beat… The new Quartet has the 4 inputs you need and looks cool also… I have a Duet (V1) and it has been solid for 4 years or more (can’t remember when I bought it)... Integrates with Logic as well…

Nice! I have been a Mac/Logic/Apogee guy for a long time… I have almost the exact same specs on my iMac, but it’s 3 years old this fall… it’s been super solid!

I’ve been using MOTU 2408 MK3. I really love it and the support with the DAW is just really great. I have never had any problems with it, so no complaints whatsoever. The same goes for the MOTU midi bay I’ve been using: MOTU Midi Express XT.

This box contains everything you need to turn your computer into a powerful 24-bit/96kHz digital audio workstation. The 2408mk3 provides 8 channels of pristine 96kHz analog recording and playback, combined with 24 channels of ADAT and Tascam digital I/O – the most ever offered in a single rack space audio interface. Connect up to four interfaces to the included PCI-424 card for an expanded system capable of 96 simultaneous active input and output connections at 96kHz.

The 2408mk3 is ideal for both the computer-based studio with no mixing board and more elaborate studios built around a digital mixer of any size.

MOTU has more products the offer, like the 192, but I never owned those. They’re even bigger with 192 kHz, etc.

If you want something simpler/cheaper I can stronly suggest the M-Audio PCI cards. Heck even the good old M-Audio Audiophile 2496. Ever since that card hit the market, I’ve had one or even two in every single DAW/PC I’ve ever owned. Even now (decent fallback device). To friends on a budget this is the card I recommend. It’s steady, stable, light-weight, cheap and simply does the job in a non-intrusive way. But then again, it might not suite your needs.

As for ASIO-latency, both the MOTU and the M-Audio stuff are good (<4 ms).
