I'm trying to record an electric guitar and apply effects (amp sim, etc.) through my DAW, then play back the result through headphones with minimal delay.
So far, I have been using the Scarlett Solo for this, but I would prefer an interface, which plugs into my computer via PCIe. I have found the ESI MAYA44 eX, which is such a PCIe card.
Can I just plug my guitar into this and be ready to play? Or am I missing something essential that the Scarlett is doing and I am not aware of?
