"In the past, choosing a sound card [for home recording] was a total headache," according to Brandon Drury, owner of and creator of the Home Recording Sound card Wizard. "It usually [consists] of a person new to home recording posting on a forum with the subject 'What's the best sound card?' Of course, this is like asking 'Who is the ideal mate?' A generous forum user [would write a post] explaining that sound cards have to fit the personal needs of each user ... [leaving] the person looking for a sound card totally confused. [Now] the Home Recording Sound card Wizard [handles] all of this automatically. What used to take 10 hours, can be handled automatically in about 10 minutes."

The free tool offers two options: one for beginners, such as new songwriters, and one for advanced users, such as recording engineers. Advanced users can simply input their needs or requirements into a one-page query form, and they are presented with a list of sound cards that will fit their needs. Beginners can utilize a more comprehensive wizard tool, which describes each potential need (such as how to know how many built in preamp channels they need) in detail, to help beginners decide on their ideal sound card requirements.

After inputting requirements, site users are presented with a comprehensive report on sound card models that meet all of their needs, including the brand, model number, price, specs and a link where the user can find additional information to compare various sound card models for their recording needs.
