and choose what you invest in.
I did want to comment that you don't want to spend a lot of money on
CPUs for sound processing, unless you're doing a LOT of it (think
conversion server being fed tons of audio from who knows where, or
realtime digital from MANY sources). ÂIf you spend half an hour
capturing an LP you'll probably spend all of 3 mins transcoding it if
you parallelize it, and unless you're striping your hard drive might
just limit you before CPU.
Multi-channel audio was also mentioned. ÂI'd talk to somebody who does
that stuff first. ÂConsumer sound cards are pretty limited there. ÂYou
might do better to record digitally elsewhere and just transfer the
audio to the PC, or use some other external capture solution. ÂMaybe
there are great sound cards for that for the PC, but they're not a
typical consumer market item.
