I need a few recommendations on a good sound card for recording music at home. I will just be doing basic recording for my band. We have 2 guitars, drums, bass, and vocals. Nothing out of the ordinary. I am going to be recording with 3 sm58's and an sm57. I am looking to spend around 200-250 dollars for a good quality card. Also from browsing around I noticed that a few of the cards in this range offer a front mounted drive that has xlr inputs, I don't know what advantages or disadvantages these offer so any info on this would be greatly appreciated. My computer specs are as follows Amd Xp-1600 256 DDR Ram 80 gig hard drive Windows XP Pro Thanks.
