audio with midi interface


just wondering what audio/midi interfaces people are using and if anyone has some suggestions for what to buy these days?

i only need stereo out and midi in, what i have been using is an m-audio 192 pci.

I'm using the old, discontinued & out of business Aardvarks. Q10's & Aark 24 cards, they each have midi. They still work great, only thing they only work with up to Win XP...which I'm still using.

As far as what to recommend, well there's a lot of cards that fit your needs. I myself would consider RME, Steinberg, Tascam, Motu to name a few, but there are others. Basically most any brand should do it for you, but you need to choose which features you need now, and in the not too distant future, such as I/O's for analog and/or digital, mic pre's, guitar pre's, headphone, fantom power for a condenser mic, midi I/O, FX inserts, 1/4" and/or XLR jacks, how you want to connect to your computer by USB, PCI/PCIe, or fire wire etc. These are more important than brand IMO.

I'm using the original babyface by RME for years, I connect my master keyboard via MIDI of babyface and it's been working great.
