Hope some of you would give some advice or opinions. I am considering purchasing a 24-bit, 192kHz USB PC audio interface.. Some interfaces I?m considering are Behringer UMC202HD $99, Focusrite Forte $499.99, ICON Umix 1008 Satellite $445.49, RME babyface $799, Roland Super UA USB Audio Interface $349.00, Tascam UH-7000 HDIA Mic Preamp and USB Audio Interface $599 and Steinberg UR22 $149. I am currently using a Roland Duo Capture that has, according to Tech support, a known stability problem. I switch back and forth between DAWs sharing the Duo which causes my PC to crash regularly. Want to fix my stability problem by getting another USB audio interface. My main DAW is Sonar X2 and I am considering upgrading to Sonar Platinum. I have a Dell Inspiron 5720 Lap Top, i7-3612QM, 2.10Ghz, 8GB Ram, Windows 7 64 bit Operating System. Main hard drive is a WD Blue ( WD10JPVT) Rotational Speed 5,400 RPM (nominal), Average Latency 5.50 ms (nominal), and Buffer To Host (Serial ATA) 3 Gb/s (Max). PC has 3.0 USB interfaces. Finally, I hope that when it comes to mastering a mix with a 24-bit, 192kHz USB audio interface that it will give me more dynamic range so the quieter sections of my audio will be less noisy and clearer. Also like the idea of recording a dog snarling at 192kHz, and import it into a 96kHz session (half the speed and pitch but no loss of resolution), and have the ominous guttural growl used in countless sci-fi monster movies. Any advice welcome.
