Sound card and speakers for music production

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I searched the forums for answer but couldn't really find anything suitable.

Basically, I'm using the onboard audio at the moment with my new build. Needless to say it's not the best. I'm using a 5.1 set as my main speakers, (Creative Inspire P5800).

I've miraculously been able to produce music on these speakers up til now, but of course having a pair of AKG 240 MK II has helped.

As a starting point, I'd like to ask what kind of soundcard you would recommend? Are Creative sound blasters still any good?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

-Rich

This seems like a really good and popular sound card for music production: HT Omega Claro Halo. As for the speakers ... there are so many good ones that I can't really decide for you redface.gif.

If you want studio grade stuff, don't look at computer websites (E.g. Newegg), take a look at places like www.sweetwater.com Thats real audio production equipment.

That doens't look bad at all. What do you think of these though? Sound Blaster ZxR, Sound Blaster Zx and Sound Blaster Z?

They look pretty nice biggrin.gif

I'm going to be buying a pre-amp (not sure which one though), and I'd like to go with an optical S/PDIF connection, from the pre-amp to the soundcard. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
