The reason why i did not move to a dedicated sound card yet are stories about bad driver support under W7. So which of the current sound card makers has the most professional and serious working and looking drivers/apps? I totally hate toys-4-us like looking applications with limited functionality but bloated to dozens of megs because of skinning. I also hate using 3rd party hacks to get anything working. It would be a great help to know how frequently updates are released and the size of the driver package download plus used disk space after installation. Screenshots of apps like the mixer or equalizer would be absolutely awesome. Thanks in advance guys!
