Hi Bernie

It's good to know that Echo are producing these high quality 2496 internal sound cards now. I have a studio quality Mia by Echo Audio and it sounds terrific.

Sound Blaster cards are of course more widely known, but few know that while they say you can record at 2496, this is not true. There was a law suit over it. Apparently you can edit at 2496.

Does recording at 2496 make a difference in sound? And how! I tested it out, and even if you don't edit, you are able to get more data on the recording so that when you bring it back down to 16 bits for CD purposes the sound is very, very nice.

That's what I did with the recordings on my demo page. Everything is just the way it came out of my Tyros. No editing was done.

For anybody that's interested here is the link to my demos.

Hi Scott
I have the Audigy2 nx ext for midi playback,with the $10 soundfont GM soundset upgrade played through Z5500 speaker system. Great sound.I am sure the Mia is better. The midi playback on my laptop using the Echo Indigo into the
Bose PAS is downright awsome.

I am just venturing into recording and don't know much about it,except I am going to live mic keyboard and vocals to a condenser mic. I only have the Creative interface to the computer. Just for two tracks for self criticizm, I might go into my Mackie mixer and into my Tascom Multitracker. The problem is it is tape,and there would be degradation from there to the pc. I would go direct out of the Bose,but I have added a touch of reverb to my vocal channel which wouldn't be present with a direct feed.

I just came from from website and enjoyed your music. In listening to your "Off The Cuff", it is evident you are an old B3 man. I was too,but not that good.

Bernie, I don't think Scott is an old B3 man...he's a Steinway guy..
