I have a Roland MC-505
Groovebox that I use with a MIDI Keyboard and I would like to buy a new soundcard for my PC (Dell Dimension 4200, 2GB RAM, 2x200 GB HD).
I would like to link my Groovebox to the computer and the keyboard via a MIDI cable, so that I can play sounds with the keyboard and work on them on Cubasis on the computer. I would also like to plug a mike to my computer to add vocals.
My 2 questions:
> What soundcards could you recommend? I have read some reviews about the Creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum or Platinum Pro card, which comes with Cubasis. Has anyone used this card and would it be fine for the job? Or do you think this card is overkill?
> Are these soundcards easy to set up?
Thank you very much for your help, it's appreciated.
