I've just recently invested in a Native Instruments Maschine, which comes with one midi in and one midi out port. I also have a Korg Kaoss Pad Quad, which needs the regular sort of line-in/line-out connection. Also! Will be getting a Novation SL Mk II very soon.
I'd love to hook all this stuff up and use it together, but my current sound card, a ESI U24XL doesn't have any midi-in ports, and not really any line-ins or outs for the regular thin cable (it has ins and outs for jacks).
So, I basically need to hook up a NI Maschine, Korg Kaoss Pad Quad, Novation SL Mk II and my Genelec monitors (two line ins) to this soundcard.
Does anyone have a soundcard to recommend me that will allow me this? I don't think I need a particularly flashy one, but I'd like one that gives me value for money. Price range around $200.
