A very neatly used Focusrite Mbox sound card. this is a professional studio gear that meets with all home studio recording needs. it is a two in/out device, it has no midi in/out. it samples at 48khz/24bit. with its decent DA/AD converters, it provides a clean sound that has a well defined bass(lows) a clean mid, and crystal clear highs. If you are wanting to setup a professional home recording studio and have been roaming around the web looking for a sound card that combines the characteristics of being pocket friendly, easy to use, and yet posses high quality sounds, then you just can't go wrong with this sound card as it offers phantom power for your condenser mic, and is also buss powered so you don't need an external power supply apart from the USB cord connected to your system. It has no driver challenges as its drivers are easy to download/install. it's a good example of a plug and play interface. we have loved it.
