[access-uk] Re: Soundcard A Soundcaard B, how to choose

DJ,

        Can't swear it was the card, but many of my old files now have some
hiss in the background when I play them through the higher quality card.
Could be as much to do with the fact I knew less about sound recording then,
but stuff I record now doesn't have any hiss.

Tink.

Hi Tink and Sunnil thanks for the Jaws stuff.

I've now Elaquince set up to use either the sb live or default so i can
toggle back and forth betweent he two without needing to make any additional
entrys or edits to the .ini.

Which will certainly help me in the short term to get some of these tapes
recorded.

A mates going to have a look at my turtle beach to make sure it's not goign
to fly under Pro then I'll look at the audigys.

Thanks Tink for the heads up on the audigy.

Why does your stuff nto sound so good anymore?

I ripped allot of materiel to 192 44hz 100 Stereo with my SB Live and Fraun
Haufer Pro (MP3 Encoder) and it sounds fantastic ont he Turtle Beach I'm
just curious as what you recorded that doesnt' sound as good on a higher end
card.
