    Thought I'd try asking here too... I'm going to buy a USB audio card and narrowed it down to M-Audio FastTrack Pro, Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and Roland Quad Capture. I'm leaning towards the Roland because from online reviews it seems to have the least amount of driver issues or problems because of the USB power (it has both USB power or uses a PSU).

    Any suggestions...?

    The only suggestion I have is to buy something really autonomous (i.e. with built-in SD card) so you don't *need* to rely on your computer.

    Something along the Zoom R8 looks probably more like what I'd buy, but then again you didn't say what exactly you need it for...

    It'd be helpful if you can tell us what you want to use the card for and why you want USB. Also, if you're hooking it to a computer, I'd need to know Mac or PC, what OS version, and what the specs of your computer are.

    As an example, all I need my audio card to do is playback. I've had no need for anything other than the built-in audio cards for the past 8 or so years.
