New guy here on GS, recently purchased an iMac 27" i7 for the purpose of recording some small arrangements with guitar, synth keyboard and vocals.
I never had any USB/firewire sound cards before, but now I´m ready to take the next step having the iMac ready to roll.
I´m mostly fund of the RME Babyface at the time, with the Midi-option that Apogee Duet 2 doesn´t have. I want the excellent sound quality like these units have, but I´m doubting whether to get these small units or going for RME Fireface 400, Focusrite for example.
For now, I´m not expecting to record with guitar amp (just sold mine to buy iMac), so instead just use different software in Logic Pro.
What do you think my needs would go best with of sound cards? Most important I want to have quality sound.
My budget will be around 800-900$.
