    If you have full height cases, and are confident you will be able to get motherboards with PCI ports in the future, Id go for these. I didn't mention them due to the later reason.

    Speed - no.
    Advantages - USB is alot easier to work with in terms of extra functionality ie rotary pot and slider control in applications.

    Go USB.

    Hi All,

    Just wanting to pick your brains again.

    We've now decided we're going to go with an external Audio Interface device in order to meet our needs for this project. The two I've been reccomended (by suppliers) are as follows.

    Focusrite Saffire 6
    Alesis IO/2 Express

    Has anyone used either of these devices before? If so, can you give me any feedback on your experience with them?

    Many thanks as always.

    What are your specific requirements?

    Will you need two simultaneous mic inputs? What's being recorded?

    We use Lexicon Alpha's and they're great, very solid and simple to use, but only one mic and one instrument input.

    Alesis are one of the cheap pro-audio companies. They tend to be pretty good for the money, never used that model though. The Focusrite soundcards are some of the best, and at quite a reasonable price there, but it is twice as much.

    Aslong as they fit your input/output requirements, both should do the job just fine. Focusrite will have higher sound quality and potentially more stable drivers, and durability. But then unless you have decent mics and speakers you aint going to notice the difference, and any kit can be destroyed by kids no matter how durable it normally is.
