I've got a new sound-card for my audio-production, the Rme Hdsp 9632.
And I'm very pleased with it.
My former was a Terratec EWX 24/96, and I really didn't notice a huge difference regarding the converters (I haven't done a proper test).
But, the Hdsp just give me an opportunity to monitor my recordings down to 32 samples latency, with software plug-ins. And that just like getting a bass-rig and a guitar-rig :)
And the headroom is practically -106db on balanced cables, and that to feels great (I think it was something like -70db on the EWX)
And I have plenty of in/out options,
right now I'm having 4 in (2 balanced, 2 unbalanced)/ 2 out, and that's just what I need. I can expand later if I want.
So, just very pleased.
