Help deciding on PC Interface
Trying to decide on a recording interface.
open to any and all suggestions, with explanation why you recomend it.
Currently I use 1 of 2 16/24-bit interfaces
Digitech GNX3000, and/or Digitech GNX4
They work great, but....
I want to use both in the mix to looper, but it doesnt allow that way.
My first choice is PCI, I have 2 really good PCI cards,
a Hercules Game Theater XP, and a X-Fi Fatality Champion Series with I/O
However: my laptop does have PCI, and my desktop has 3 GTX285's so I cant access my 2 PCI slots.
Now my question is Firewire/1394a/b versus usb.
My laptop is an HP DV6-2155 Core i3. ICH10 chipset which does not have a firewire port, so I will need an Expresscard 54/34 for firewire.
USB I have alot USB devices, GNX3000/GNX4, JamMan Looper, Mouse, etc.. which may cause latency issues. Firewire is independent of chipset, and CPU.
I have heard that the express cards are actually slower then an onboard Texas Instruments Firewire chip.
With all that said. USB or Firewire?
Thanks for participating in my interface search
