Hi, I need to upgrade my PC and I am considering purchasing one of the Creative E-MU soundcard series. I hope to use the system for: - mixing - sampling - instrument simulation Q. Do I need to get a top of the line Pentium with heaps of ram in order to operate the card ?(and do the tasks listed above) or is all of the processing done onboard the sound card. Q2. I was thinking of purchasing the E_MU 1212. will that give me professional quality instrument simulation, sampling etc?
