New soundcard

I bought new soundcard yesterday. I wasn’t sure if I should have done that until I tried it. Older worked fine if I didn’t push CPU too much. New soundcard can take much more cpu load without any problmes. Now I can play Diva with much less crackles. I think this is because my old soundcards drivers were from year 2010. No updates since and you couldn’t find drivers from web site of company that made it. It is like they want to forget that they ever made the soundcard.

I bought Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. It costs almost twice than my previous M-Audio Fast Track MK2. Still in reasonamble price range. I don’t know how much better it sound when using it recording. At least it doesn’t sound worse. I just did small test with guitar. Spent more time playing Diva now that my system can handle it better. I think I will be happy with this for some time. Previous soundcard served me for years. Next soundcard could be one of more high end cards. Checked few from net and those had quite interesting features.
