Sound card advise

Hi Greg,

sorry my email is a bit off-topic too.

I am looking for an audio interface too but a simpler one. More like a Sound 
Blaster Audigy to record the sound that goes out from my synthesizer and 
play real-time softsynths. So I wanted to know what is the best working 
latency you managed to get with your SBAudigy.

About the M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB I know that's an excellent 
product but I don't know about the latency but if it is USB 1.0, not USB 
2.0, then the latency sucks really, I resold my UA-20 Edirol for that 
reason, so beware... I've heard that the latency is good with USB 2.0 but 
I've never experimented it myself.

Good luck,
