Re: arsclist RE: Equipment advice for TTU
I completely agree wth Jose's opinion of the Card Deluxe. The audio quality
coming out of it is sterling. But one warning: it apparently must be used
with the Intel motherboard. In a recent update I tried another brand with a
non-Intel CPU & with the card installed, the computer wouldn't boot up, so
stick to Intel.
I'm running Sound Forge 4.5 on a Pentium 4 1.7. I think that it's an
incredibly powerful tool that's disproportionately inexpensive as compared
to other utilities costing many more times its price.
