PostSubject: Low Latency Sound Card - Cheap Solution   Tue Aug 31, 2010 9:53 am

With only about 4 to 8 ms latency you can afford the M-audio firewire solo.
It used to cost 150€ but now it's 179€ (pff) but it's still a really affordable price for your home studio.

I have this sound card and i am really happy with it. Great value for money Very Happy

I have Line 6 UX2 external sound card. Latency is about 4 ms. It costs about 179 $. Also you get some free apps, like ableton, pod farm, reason adapted. It is nice sound card to start your home recording studio. In future plans I'm dreaming about getting a good monitors. Maybe you can give me some advice? Smile

179$ = 141€ for about 4ms affraid
Great choice! cheers

Of course my friend! First check this topic I think it will help you out!
http://mixingtips.org/crbst_11.html

If you can't afford the yamahas go for RKR Rokit or even mackies Wink
When you are done please send a post and let me know if the article helped you.

By the way, how much money are you willing to spend?

I forgot about thomann.de Smile)).. And you remembered it to me. I'm thinking of buying an M-Audio AV40 (118 Euros). But now I'm confused, cause my friend has M-Audio StudioPro3 (68 Euros) and I liked it very much. I'm trying to aim the price at about 100 -120 Euros, because I think 250 - 400 Euros is too much for home recording studio. Or maybe I blunder. Smile

P.S. I liked your post about monitors Smile

Well, generally, 400 euros are too much yes.
But I have to say that the 400 euros I spent for the yamahas... are the best 400 euros i've ever spent hehe
I know that i've spent them and I won't need to spend for monitors again (I hope so cause i love trying new stuff Laughing )

If you really CAN spend money for the yamahas i suggest you do it.
Now about the M-Audio StudioPro3 and the AV40.

There is one big advantage for the studiopro3. And that is that you had the opportunity to try them and as you said you liked them. Spend some more time with them and go and get them. The "key" is to "learn" your monitors and you'll save some bucks too (68 bucks is damn a good price).

1) If you have a chance to try the AV40 do this first.
2) If you can afford the Yamahas do this second.
3) And last, if you liked the studiopro 3 GO GET THEM!


Hope I helped.

I was mixing only with my AKG K55 reference headphones, but mixes were all too "thin", so i decided to buy a couple of monitors..I've made hell of a research, as i live in Turkey i don't have much options and as pricing, Turkey is kinda fucked up place Evil or Very Mad

Shortly said, i've discovered Kurzweil KS-40A, which is way more better than Behringers and M-Audio's in the same price range..It's like 120 bucks in here, but i've seen even 59$ prices in some web-sites in USA..

Its so versatile, gives you the stereo image so well, but it lacks (natural for a monitor set in this price) the basses below nearly 90hz..I've found a solution for this anyhow, i've connected my old Creative 4+1's Sub into this system, and voila! I've got superb low's and clear and depth mid and highs..

Using a sub-woofer for mixing isn't ideal for me. I don't know.. Having an extra monitor for bass makes me feel that i don't have a real image of my EQ spectrum.

If you know how your monitors work with your bass then I am done with it Wink

Why don't you order from abroad? From thomann or dv247 for example?

The reason I ask is cause you wrote that you don't have many price options.
If your country doesn't give you options then the internet is your friend... and ebay Very Happy
You can find some bargains and save you some money!

Unfortunately the music-production equipment is too expensive especially for students I know I know... Rolling Eyes

Hi there!!!

Yes, I'm using Asio4all v2.9 driver, and ASIO Buffer size is 480 Samples. Latency compensation 32 Samples in/out. And there is no v in other 3 options. But there is one notice. When I'm using my laptop the latency is about 12 ms and with the same preferences in my PC there is 4 ms. So, finally i think it depends on something what is in you computer, maybe mother board or something. Suspect study scratch

I'm using M-Audio JamLab and i have on PC 8ms latency.It cost ~ 60$.
M-Powered pro tools works excellent with M-Audio JamLab but i prefer Cubase because i start with it.
