Topic: Madiface xt, which pci Express card

Could you recommend me a pci expresscard 34 for connecting a madiface xt to my older Lenovo t 410 laptop?
It doesn’t have usb3, and I want to record 128 channels.
I figure connecting it via pci Express would be the way to go.

Thanks, Georg

Thanks Matthias,
Would you recommend buying a
USB3 PCI expressCard or rather one of the
PCIexpresscard-PCIexternal ?

ExpressCard. But the question is if you still find one somewhere...

Hi,
I am about to get a new Laptop...it is getting harder to get one with Expresscard.
So what is the best solution for our Madiface XT?

Thunderbolt 3 -> Expresscard -> Madiface XT

or

USB3 -> Madiface XT

I need stability (up to 64 Channel recording in 24/96) plus low latency - up to 2 hours of recording without Interruption.
My old Lenovo W541 was working great.

Any hint - maybe for a laptop as well? Lenovo X1 Extreme?

Thanks.

With a good computer and a well designed USB subsystem USB3 will work perfectly. In reality chances are higher that TB3 reaches that state quicker and more easily.

Re: Madiface xt, which pci Express card

Thanks for the Info.
So the way to go would be a Laptop with TB3.
Would this adaptersetting work:

Apple Adapter TB3->TB2 to this

Or is there a way directly TB3 to expresscard?
Thanks.

The Apple adapter does not work with all Windows computers. The Startech adapter does.

Thanks for the info - I did not know about an non Apple adapter.


So I think this is a Yes to my question that 2 adapters will work.

:-)
Thanks.
