Re: USB audio sound card, What do i get?

sbrothy, first of all, welcome to the forums.

There are a lot of threads about this so you'll need to do a fair bit of reading, even if you decide to get one. And if you decide to get one, then the next question is obviously, which one.

The main thing though that you'll immediately get is an improvement in CPU performance because a lot of the work the CPU handles gets offloaded to the audio interface. This also manifests as being able to use more VSTs and tracks in a song than without one. You'll also get less lag if using a midi keyboard/controller.

If you record your own samples or instruments, usually sound quality will go up, you'll get both higher frequency and greater bit depth i.e. better sound quality.

I won't write too much because nearly everything I could write is already answered in the various threads in this section.
