Can I use onboard sound + sound card?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Sorry have zero experience with sound cards and have only ever used onboard.

I ask the question because I'm looking to get the Xonar ST Essence for my new Beyer DT770/80 pros + DVR receiver input. With that card you only have the option of one input.. either mic or the DVR's sound.

So I was wondering if I could use both, the onboard sound for the mic input and just use the Xonar for everything else (at the same time). I can't find any definitive answers via the googles.

I've done it. Used the onboard front panel mic in and the sound card out for speakers, works fine.
