Topic: Which soundcard do I need?
I want to buy an new audio interface (I can get my Steinberg MR816x working anymore with my new PC) and I want to choose an RME. I am only a bit confused by all the different models.
Budget not more than +/-1500 euro
First priority sound quality, but possibility to expand inputs and outputs, not so much
Preamps, 1 is enough for the mic but more bal jack are welcome.
Second priority is latency. I need the lowest latency possible, does this mean I need a PCI e card which is perfectly fine for me or is there no (notacible) latency difference between PCI e and usb?
I was thinking about the RME HDSPe AIO but it’s aleready 8 years on the market. Maybe the technology (latency, sound quality, features) improved in these 8 years and how does the sound quality compare to the latest rme interfaces is it the same or is does theRME Fireface UCX, RME Fireface 802 or the RME ADI-2 Pro 2-channel AD/DA converter sounds better.
