    Default What audio card?

    So im buildin a setup and this is my gear list so far,
    Macbook Pro
    Kaoss KP3
    Monome kit (to be built)
    Korg Ms2000
    Roland SP606 sampler
    Some effects rack
    Mbox classic*
    Traktor Pro
    Live 6

    *Im looking for a new interface
    cause the mbox only has 2 outputs no way for master and booth

    What should i get?
    Im thinking of getting an Audio Kontrol 1
    but if I want to use the outside effects ill need something with at least 3 stereo outs. So, should I get a better interface than the Kontrol 1 or is it possible/practical to use the Kontrol 1 and the Mbox.

    If so, do you think a M-audio 410 would do?
    I have heard mixed things about this interface and was wondering about
    this and or other interfaces that have 3 stereo pairs of outputs.
    1 for main
    1 for monitor/booth
    1 for outboard effects chain

    Thanks for any input and help in advanced.

    If you have spent all this money on your setup so far you might as well buy a decent firewire card to go with it while your at it - look at something like the Presonus Firebox.

    yeah looks like a solid interface. Question for anyone who has it. Can you route the headphone output to whatever you want or is it a dedicated mirror of output 1 and 2?

    it can be routed to whatever you want.
    +1 on the firebox, esp over the m-audio 410

    Presonous Firebox or Saffire LE?

    I'm between this two choices...

    I have heard from someone here at the forum that Saffire LE doens't have an idependent headphone output to pré-listen the mixed music, is it right?

    you'd get my nod for the firebox too
    Current Top 3:
    1. Loco Dice - Seeing through Shadows
    2. Light Year - Sex Education
    3. Simian Mobile Disco - Cruel Intentions (DJ Pierre Remix)

    I love my Audio 8 DJ. Works like a charm... No external power required.

    The downside to that is that unless you use a power filter or run on battery during your set, the sound card might freeze (all USB sound cards are at risk for this).
