    hey guys (and girls)

    i was just wondering what you all thought of computer recording interfaces

    i am thinking of buying one but not for the use of recording

    i want to use it only for it's outputs so i can use it an old laptop that only have a 3.5 headphones jack

    here is what i need

    stereo 6.5 jacks out and maybe two inputs of the same kind

    the best one i have found ( in my price range is the F-CONTROL AUDIO FCA202 by BEHRINGER)

    any ideas?

    Hug,

    Can you please clerify what you are looking for?

    From the sound of it, you are looking for a good quality sound card, nothing more...

    If you are looking for audio, ProTools hardware and software are bassicly considered "industry standard"

    Nuendo is a very powerful software suite.

    But again, I am unsure what you are looking for...

    If you are looking for a sound card that is probably what to buy. If you are looking for a recording interface that is probably what to buy. Perhaps a Creative Sound Blaster Extigy is what you are looking for? It looks quite a bit more expensive than the Behringer interface you posted, but I would probably buy this over the Behringer. I haven't really looked into the Behringer interface but their gear isn't always the greatest.

    M-Audio and MOTU make quality audio interfaces - you might check those out.

    Alesis iO|2
    I'll probably be getting one of Alesis' bigger iO interfaces soon, to do some basic computer recording stuff. And they come with Cubase LE.

    Then what you want is a good quality sound card with either RCA or TR/TRS in's and out's.
