I have many things attached via USB. (3 midi controllers, mouse, webcam, and keyboard) Will these effect my sound with a USB audio interface? Any pops, cracks etc from having so much stuff running all on USB? IF so should I get a firewire adaptor for my pc and go that route or will the firewire still be effected because the PCI is apart of the same pathway as the USB? or vice versa?
I know most of you will insist on firewire to begin with but i am picking a USB audio interface for use with my laptop that has no firewire (PC) and as a master control for my main PC.
Edit: What I mean about pops and clicks is will the Interface being used as a sound card w/ master volume control for my Studio monitors be stable for audio playback from my DAW? Not the recording aspect.
