Advice on Hardware for Low Latency Monitoring
I am a musician who is trying to get a DAW /Hardware solution which can.
Receive up to 12 inputs
Add Studio effects
Mix to 4 outs with very low latency
Record at the same time
I have trialed the following
AMD Dual Core 64 + 4MB RAM (owned), Windows xp64 (trial)+Sonar8 (trial) +Tascam1641 (owned) and achieved latency of <1ms and very stable - so it is possible.
However I do not have the funds to purchase windows or sonar.
A friend recommended looking into a Linux solution.
I have loaded Ubuntu and Ardour successfully and am very interested, however it would appear that Tascam do not fully cooperate and there is no ALSA support for the 1641. ;-(
Does any one know if it is possible to use Ardour in the way i need - if so what sound card is best.
