Re: Easy Question ????????

YOu’ll be fine either way, probably it is a little better using your sound card because it is a PCI device and information will travel faser that way than USB, but really you’ll be fine no matter what way you choose. btw, ASIO is a driver that manages audio information, not MIDI information AFAIK.


Hope this helps

Re: Easy Question ????????

He’s right that you’d be fine either way - that’s true because the MIDI messages are by FAR slower than either interface. So even if all 16 channels were fully saturated with data, either interface could easily keep up with plenty of headroom left over.

Do whatever works better for you, but I prefer the USB interface.
