Which Soundcard


A friend of mine is setting up a smaller system where price matters. He has decided to buy a used MacPro 2010 but which sound card should he get.
I haven't really followed the more entry to mid level stuff for ages so I can't be of much help myself.
It's probably best to get an outboard one since PCI has been abandoned.
Although the RME Babyface seems to be exactly what he's looking for, the price is quite high. Which alternatives are there. Low latency and analogue inputs with Mic Pres are musts

All the Best
