the main reason to switch the sound cards is the audio sound quality.
I'm able to pay around 700,- EUR / 800,- EUR (right now, regarding to my
"profession", I usually don't have any money). Btw. I noticed that not
only my sound cards do cause loss. When recording soft synth just by
JACK, without the sound cards being involved, there's a loss for the
sound quality too! And soft synth already do sound less good than real
old synth. Unfortunately those real old synth can break and there're no
microchips available to repair those synth, resp. they are hard to get,
very expensive and without warranty.
My two TerraTec EWX 24/96 needs to be replaced, before I don't have got
the money anymore. FWIW S/PDIF doesn't work for my Ubuntu Studio with
the TerraTecs, hence I can't use "good analog IOs" that would be
available via S/PDIF. Btw. "good analog IOs" in this context does mean
consumer DAT Sony DTC-670 and Aiwa HD-S1, both are without any loss of
sound quality, when listening by my consumer equipment. At least good
consumer sound quality is what I expect of a "professional" sound card,
even if internal Linux there still would be loss caused by JACK or
caused by what issue ever. Once Brauner borrowed me a Mac with a Motu
firewire device. This devices sound quality and the Mac's sound quality
accomplished this requirement! No, I'm not using Brauner microphones for
my home studio
, all I need is good consumer sound quality.
Two question about the RME card, I'll read more about sound cards later
and during the weekend and maybe I'll order a card next week.
At a max of 4 analog IOs? The unbalanced breakout cables are part of the
