looking for new audio card

Postby Chip » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:40 pm

I just purchases a new HP desktop using Windows 10. It comes with an onboard sound card. I want to upgrade it and am looking for suggestions of cards that work well with Finale. I use Finale 2014.5. I would also like to know if there are sound cards to avoid like the SoundBlaster series.

I have an M-Audio AudioPhile 2496 that I no longer use. PM me if you're interested.

The AudioPhile requires a PCI slot, which a new computer may not have.

There are many external USB interfaces: ... GFD16MN4Q5
