Soundcard of my choice+Elements OR Soundcard w/Cubase LE/AI

Which is the better choice?

What is important to think about before making up my mind?

The one that does what you need…


I always prefer a dedicated solution, not the universal one. If you find an Audio Device which fits your needs, and it is not bundeled with Cubase, then go for it.

If any Steinberg Audio Device (with Cunase AI bundeled) fits your needs, take it. Then you can upgrade to Cubase Elements.
