I tried updating the sound drivers for Windows, and it seemed to help for a while, but now it's crappy again. Basically can't use Vegas for anything.

It's Windows XP, if that matters.
I had something similar until I got a Presonus Firebox and now it's super quite and very true to whatever I recorded. Its a great soundcard.

Can you put new sound cards in an Imac, though? I thought it was kind of a closed system. Anyway, I think it's a Vegas problem 'cause everything else works fine.

Apple works fine. But I wouldnt invest in two workflows. You will end up with twice as many files and multiple operating systems.

At the end of the day you need less complication so that your archive is as simple as possible.

Sounds interesting. I have been wanting to go the way of the Mac but I love Vegas too much to let it go. Jason, are you able to read SxS directly in bootcamp with Sony's transcoder sw? I m thinking of running both FCPS2 and Vegas Pro 8 in the same MBP. Not sure if that would screw things up big time!

Of cse, the final concern is blueray support. I'm wondering if the Macs would be supporting them in the next generation of MBP.

It's a firewire soundcard so you just plug it into an open firewire port and install the software.

Sean, that is exactly what I am using FCP on Mac and Vegas on XP/Bootcamp... SxS works awsome in the express card slot with either OS... Workflow is excellent!! Best of both worlds...
