I've been reading a discussion about PC based vs. dedicated machine HD recording, and one of the big issues brought up was portability. i am about to get a laptop, and I had this great idea. I saw the Digigram laptop recording card... http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ex/shop/rec/010611112122163150018013137118?pid=240075 This is where it's at! I have Cakewalk Sonar, I'll put it on my laptop, put this card in, and have a portable PC-based recording system! What do you think? Also...If this works as I think it does, I'll need some type of preamp to get to RCA, or SPDIF. what do you suggest?
