During December 2009 Winter holidays Andrea and Oscar started a project to use the USB sound audio interface as Analog and digital IO controller... There are many different model of external USB audio interface and sound card. We made a small analisys of some of the cheap interfaces we found. Some of them are interesting for the possibility to get an easy and cheap IO controller for our ubiquous pc. We immagine that many of this consumer products evolve very fast and sometimes the internal solution changes. Nevertheless we try here to keep trace of some of them.
