Hey guys,
I'm finally getting rid of my M-Audio Revolution soundcard because the drivers suck horrifically, and I'm sick of it. So, other than M-Audio, can you suggest some good recording soundcards? Thanks for your help!

Not exactly a recording soundcard, but I recently purchased this to help me record myself, and have some fun playing with the amp models and stuff:

Line 6 TonePort UX1

It is (among other things) a USB audio recording interface with very good, very low latency ASIO drivers.

I've been using the RME Hammerfall HDSP 9632 soundcard for 4-5 years now, very happy with it. Rock solid drivers, good converters, comfortable price.

Depends on how much $ you want to spend.

The Hammerfall card that Steinar Gregertsen suggested is an excellent card as are most RME Hammerfall products. They can be a bit pricey. The HDSP 9632 goes for around $550.00

I personally use the E-MU 0404. I love this card, but it takes a bit of time to completely learn how to use the patchmix software that comes with it. Unfortunately, that's the software needed to use the card. It retails for around $100.00

The best bet is to go to a site like http://www.guitarcenter.com or http://www.musiciansfriend.com and check out the reviews on the audio interface cards.

Keep in mind that these cards are designed for recording. They work great as a general sound card, but some of them are a little more tricky to set up and use.

I use the Edirol FA-66. It is awesome. It has lower latency than most other soundcards out there in its price range. The preamps are decent too.
