This is really out of question to me: I will certainly not use MIDI over USB. I talked to some guys and beside the technical issues of this, there is the question about the intention of a musician using this: Doing real music certainly does not work with MIDI over USB. I know that this opinion may be considered as offensive or something like this, but that´s what I was told but everyone I asked, so I guess, there is truth behind it.

Any other real good sound cards that can be recommended?
