What kind of Mac do you have?



Most of them come ready-to-roll with a pretty dandy sound interface.



All except the Quicksilver Towers.



MOTU has a good interface.

Edirol has some good Analog-to-digital interfaces.



What sound app will you be using?

I'm looking at getting the G5. I'm really just in the investigation stages. I was weened on Mac....An old 512 was my first computer. It was built by a chop shop that added a fan and hard drive. Ohh those were the days...what would we ever do to fill a big 20mb drive???



So I'm not real sure about software (audio interface) nor the sound card.

Thanks!

I should note, that's a G5 tower, perhaps dual proc. But more than likely single proc.

You'll see at Apple.com the specs for the new G5's have:



Optical digital audio input, optical digital audio output, analog audio input, analog audio output, front headphone minijack and speaker



You won't need a card unless your sound editing app calls for a proprietary interface.
