I want to do two things : -use the soundfonts (very interesting) -record some guitar and voice The audigy 2 was my first choice. But some questions appeared : why allow this card to record at 96 kHz(sampling rate),and let the DSP at 48 kHz ? (the card change the SR to 48 ,apply the effects,return it to 96 kHz !) Why selling the normal and platinum with ASIO 1.0 and the future eX model with ASIO 2.0(96 kHz with Cubase,instead of 48 kHz,it's not a detail !(i know the alternative but...)) ? Is the DSP really capable of applying multiple effects in real-time to the soundfonts ? So,now,it's seems to oblige me to wait and pay an eX a lot more than a normal or a platinum to really record at 96 kHz and apply DSP effects at the same rate.and got the ASIO 2.0. Or buy a normal version and another soundcard to record,but as the others cheap recording cards got no DSP effects but equalizer,echo and other basics... Can some musicians help me to choose a solution ?
