What’s the best soundcard for audio recording?

This question from one of our customers ranks as one of the shortest questions I’ve ever received! Nevertheless, it’s a question many people ask…

Tell me what is the best soundcard to use.

Hi Frans

There are thousands of soundcards available and they are all different prices. Generally, the more expensive the soundcard, the better quality it is.

You ask what is the best soundcard though, so I’d have to say that “Pro Tools” is arguably the best soundcard although it’s not just a soundcard – it’s a whole recording system, software and all…
