    A soundcard is a soundcard. Audio comes out of it, so yes, you can use it for producing...

    Quality-wise it's a good choice. If it has enough in-/outputs for your needs, go for it...

    If you're doing anything other than monitoring off of it, that's not true. If it's in the signal chain, it alters the sound. Maybe that's good…maybe not.

    I wouldn't use it, but I have a hangup about sound cards that require drivers.

    But, I also use OS X and have had bad luck with the cards I've tried that do use drivers…although it's equivalent to say that I've had problems with Avid/Digidesign interfaces.

    If you're using outboard gear or recording anything…if the sound card is integral to your signal chain…and you're on OS X, I'd start by trying Apogee if I was rich and probably Presonus if I wasn't. But I might be the only person that has such hangups about only wanting CoreAudio instead of proprietary drivers.

    It's because my mBox2 and every MAudio card I've ever seen touched me inappropriately as a child.

    AK-1 is awesome!

    But for me the Audio4DJ is more than enough for production.
