Starting a new thread because I can't edit the old one anymore, new lower price. Emu 1616 midi/audio interface for your computer. Includes the main unit, cardbus interface for your laptop or pcmcia equipped desktop, power supply, cable from cardbus to main unit, and midi breakout cable. This is a complete turnkey computer interface solution that works perfectly. I used it on my laptop for remotes and as my main studio hub. You could do the same or pair it with a desktop. It sounds great and does what it is supposed to. I don't know why other manufacturers don't make this configuration or why Emu doesn't anymore but this is pretty much the best all-in-one interface that has been made. Emu still actively supports this device and you can get up to date drivers and software from their site (Creative is the parent company now). I used this on Windows XP, many use on Windows 7 also. $90 shipping and paypal included to continental 48 USA.
