    I used this until I got a desktop PC - worked stellar with my laptop. Most of the older clips from Basstasters were recorded using this soundcard. Sounds great! An inexpensive way to get high-quality tracks down.

    $100 including shipping/fees.


    The Duo is a powerful tool for recording mic and line level signals over USB in the highest quality possible. The Duo allows you to record from microphones (even large diaphragm mics that require phantom power) or any line level sources. You can optimize your levels with gain controls and pads, as well as signal and clip LEDs. Use the Direct Monitor button for zero latency monitoring (direct from the sources without going through the computer and software). You can also adjust the global output of the Duo by toggling between +4db and 10db on the rear panel. Headphones may also be connected for convenient monitoring in the field. When disconnected form the USB port, the Duo also functions as a high performance 24-bit standalone A/D converter. Select your sample rates via the DIP switches on the bottom of the unit (44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz), connect the S/PDIF output to your digital device, and you re ready to record digitally anywhere, anytime. The Duo s digital output is compatible with 24-, 20- and 16-bit devices.
