  1. Hi John!
    I somehow have found my way to your website. Very impressive by the way!
    I’m emailing you because I want to start recording my own music and junk, and I have an M-audio mobilepre usb mobile soundcard, and a pretty good computer with studio software, 88 key midi keyboard, a microphone, electric bass, 2 electric guitars and a bunch of cables. But, I feel like my sound card really sucks, and I’m having a hard time finding a replacement that would suit my purposes. Since I’m on here,

    do you have any recommendations for an external soundcard, or… anything else I might need? Thanks much!

    1. Dominic! Long time no talk. I was planning on making an article on my workflow, but ill go ahead and respond personally for you.

      Wow, already a great start on gear! 88 key keyboards are super awesome for sure. As you probably know, all you really need is a computer and an audio interface, which you already got. judging by your list of guitars I imagine you want to record some live parts. There are 2 ways to record a guitar, either directly into your interface or by micing an amp. Micing is almost always better sounding but you do need to have a good amp and mix. Direct is easier but you will need an amp simulator.
      Now the weakest link in your gear is your m-audio. Its pretty much the lowest end interface you can get away with, so if you plan on getting any new gear id recommend anything by presonus or edirol. What software are you using? I use cubase so if you have any questions about that I would be happy to help you.
