Sound card question

Does sound card affect vst quality?
I mean, do they sound worse with a cheap sound card or is it just a matter of latency? :blush:

Well, a cheap soundcard/interface affects the sound overall in a nagative way, and yes the latency will be higher.

No. Well, in YOUR speakers/headphones it might sound worse but no, it doesn’t affect the real sound.

Thank you, that’s all I wanted to understand.
