If you really care about low latency, you will want a sound card which includes ASIO drivers.  You can find both internal and external sound cards which support ASIO.  The music/recording software must also support the ASIO interface to take advantage of the lower latency.

What does making music entail?  I don't know if there are any advantages in using an internal sound card for what the person wants to do but I suspect, though I don't know this, that a lot of people who record and edit music they create uuse USB sound cards.  I would think that any areas where performance may be poorer, such as longer latency in USB sound cards, can be compensated for by working with the recording program.  In addition, I would also suspect that the same problems would be encountered with an installed sound card except that the latency period might be shorter, but it would still have to be corrected for when mixing tracks.

These inexpensive devices generally work fine.  Just be aware that many of them only include a microphone input.  If you want to use it for recording, you will want one that also has a line input.

If you just want to use a USb card for playing audio, all you have to do is plug it into a USB port.  However, most features offered by the sound card, such as recording, will not be available unless you install the basic software that comes with the card.  I don't know if it is possible to generalize about how accessible installation is from sound card to sound card.

Well as I said, no machine will specifically state in the description that you can add a second sound card.  If there are unused PCIe card slots, then you can add an internal sound card.  Otherwise, you can use an external USB sound card.

Installing the drivers! This part about being accessible on the software that comes with it I cannot speak to that. Only to the driver install by windows. This is usually fairly simple and automatically done. Then you would access what features it have with the windows driver like any sound card that have drivers built by windows.

Hi Matt,

 

How can a USB sound card help with a fresh install?  Also, what brand of USB do you recommend?  And, last, are these USB cards easy for a blind person to install?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

James Bentley

Also the chance of the onboard card dying is very slim I have never had one dye I know of. I have had this dell desktop XPS I think it is a model 8100 for at least 6 years if not more and have never had the first problem with the sound that is on board and I don’t have a sound card in this one as it had such a great onboard sound system. What I did was get a graphic card for it rather than using the on board graphics as I wanted a graphic board that had its own memory instead of sharing my computer memory.

Now there is an advantage to having a USB card for several reason. One you can have the system sounds and such come thru one and the other for just jaws. Also it might come in helpful if ever needing to do a complete fresh install.

Unless you know or are willing to pay someone who can install an internal card, a USB sound card will work just as well.

Hi

  The reason I would like a second sound card is because the original one is integrated into the system.  If the sound card dies, I don’t know who could fix it.

Do you know if blind user’s are having better luck with certain brands?

Installing the drivers! This part about being accessible on the software that comes with it I cannot speak to that. Only to the driver install by windows. This is usually fairly simple and automatically done. Then you would access what features it have with the windows driver like any sound card that have drivers built by windows.

So, the USB external sound card will download its drivers from Windows and will work right out of the box?  Will I need to turn off my computer’s current internal sound card?

If you just want to use a USb card for playing audio, all you have to do is plug it into a USB port.  However, most features offered by the sound card, such as recording, will not be available unless you install the basic software that comes with the card.  I don't know if it is possible to generalize about how accessible installation is from sound card to sound card. 

 

I'll let others deal with the other questions you raise.

Most basic USB audio devices/sound cards use a generic Windows driver.  More sophisticated USB sound cards may use custom drivers.  You don't have to disable your internal/onboard sound.

Well this might help those that are needing to get credit and cannot get it! Now this is also tech related as well as this uses a app for your phone or device and also data from these devices to help you get a loan to do whatever you need to do. Some was just talking about how to get financing for A T devices and software and if you want to start a business or already have business this might help as well to get a loan to help improve it or expand it and so on. So see link below and enjoy!
