    Hi Guys,

    One of my clients is in a local band. They want to start recording their own music onto cd. They have come to me for a proper computer setup that they can hook their musical instruments upto this computer.

    I am at a loss as to what would be a proper setup/soundcard for this setup.

    Any ideas would be great.

    Thanks in advance,

    Heeter

    as far as the sound card goes i recomend the x-fi. you would need the elite but it will sound amazing.

    Thanks, Bud.

    X-FI elite. Will check it out. Thanks.

    Does their gear hook up directly to it, or does it need more parts between the gear and the soundcard?

    Thanks,

    Heeter

    DO NOT GET A CREATIVE CARD (if they want to record)

    THere's alot of ways to go depending on budget and what they want to be able to do with it.

    Here's what I just built:

    AMD 3200 Venice
    MSI Neo4 mobo
    2 Samsung 250 gb hdd
    NEC 4551 dvdrw
    BenQ 1650 dvdrw
    M-Audio Delta 1010 audio card

    Software is where it will get pricey
