Brandon at RecordingReview.com has developed the Home Recording Soundcard Wizard, “the easiest way to find a soundcard that is right for you.”
As a newbie, it’s tough to get straight answers as to what you really need. You have to do a month of research just to figure out what you need to research. Well not anymore! Just use the Home Recording Soundcard Wizard. Go through each step and read as much as you need to. You’ll find a list of ideal soundcards for your needs immediately.
Soundcard, in this context, means any device used to get sound into and out of your computer, whether via PCI, firewire, or USB. If you’re in the market for a new audio interface, and the specs make your head swim, this tool should save some time.
