I worked with Smart Volume Management (SVM or normalizing sound) that be a capability of Creative Sound Card for Live Music Recording (we have one mixer and two mics on two separate line we get the people and speaker sounds).
I buy this sound card X-Fi Creative
I buy a Mixer Dynacord 1000-3 as Described Here.
We used the stereo output from Mixer to input of creative sound card (RCA) and record good.
Today We decide to use USB-24 bit output from our mixer and plug it to one device that accept usb input for recording and has capability of SVM. Computer without the SVM capability is not good for us. Our question is as follows:
if we buy a Creative Sound Blaster X7 and like always use streo and RCA for recording, has differ quality to use a device that accept USB input for recording and has SVM capability? (I means quality of stereo port is differ with USB ?
