Re: sound card recommendations
I'm a Windows guy, so I'm not speaking with authority here,
but I think you will find that current Apple computers can
easily handle your needs. A quick Google search turns up
bit depths to 24 and sample rates to 96000 for MacBook Pro.
Also, a client a few years back used my Windows-only
software on the Mac Minis already in the lab. This was no
problem using Boot Camp to load XP. The default sound was
16-bit 48000 Hz, but could be set higher by dialog-diving
in Windows Control Panel. There is surely something
equivalent in the normal Apple OS.
