    What audio card do you recommend for a CS4 Win 7x64 system?


      The on board Microsoft High Deffinition Audio is very limited and i can't adjust record levels. Also the output levels are very low that I feed to my Mackie board with the output level adjusted to max. I am using the HDVsplit to capture my video which is great, but the audio level is so low I have to increase each clip by 15 to 20 db (pain to have to do this on every clip). There are no record levels to adjust with HDVsplit, so this may be where the problem lies. If this is the case, got any suggestions?

      I know the recorded levels are fine on the HDV tape. I have another system that is Win 7x64 with CS4, with a Matrox RTX2 card and a SB Audiogy card and I have no issues with audio record or playback levels. So, I am guessing that a new, good audio card is what I need. Suggestions?
