M-Audio Audiophile 24/96
« on: October 23, 2022, 02:15:01 PM »
This was my favorite soundcard from older PC's I had, and I'm thinking of picking up a nice used one for a new PC build. I'm curious if anyone on here still uses one and how does it do under Windows 11? Thanks :)

was a good card in its day

you might have a hard time finding a mobo with that legacy PCI slot, i only see a handfulon newegg

given all the things that can go wrong in a computer transfer setup, esp a decades-old card in a modern OS without support, you might have a fair amount of work ahead, many hours of testing for bit accuracy and dropped samples/interrupts

would be cheaper and quicker to build a win XP box with hardware thats essentially free

or one of the numerous bit-accurate stand-alone recorders with spdif in

Nope. Not interested in going external.

I'm curious why you are taking a hard line stance against an external USB interface?

I had this discussion recently with a friend of mine that is a musician with a home studio and he was looking at similar options to what you are talking about in the OP.

Fair question. The latency issues with "some" (not all) USB 2 and USB 3 has been an issue with my friends setup so I would like to avoid that as much as possible. To be honest, I have been doing a good bit of research on both internal and external and there is a lot of nice options available, so my opinion of outboard could change :)

Can someone here suggest a bare bones external card to capture DAT conversions via a Sony standalone A7 deck?  It has SPDIF and optical outputs, so something that can capture then and send via USB to Adobe Audition is all I need.  The Scarlet 8i6 is $250...  hoping there's something out there new for <$100 ??

Thanks yall!

I bought a lovely used Marantz to do DAT transfers.
Much as I love good interfaces, it just seems proper to go DAT > S/Pdif  > 661 > WAV > SD card and be done with it.
Why count on the clock from some old PC build?
I get it, it's fun to make a solid machine, but I just can't get attached to it, and it uses more juice than a portable writing to SD.

I get what your saying, but does everything have to be "justified" all the time? Sometimes people just like using certain things. I know that sounds crazy, but I just like this soundcard. I use/used it for a LOT more than just transferring DAT's.

Be careful!  PCI slots are pretty damn close to being obsolete these days.  Make sure your card uses PCI-e or PCI-x or that your "new build" uses a legacy motherboard that has a PCI slot.

There's tons of the Tascam US series of USB interfaces out there available used for $50-$100. I had a US800 for a while. It worked fine. You can find the US144mkii for $50 easily on Reverb or Ebay.
