I have used a Creative Labs Sound blaster Audigy5/rx somewhat successfully. This is an internal sound card.

Pros:
Latency and stability are very good. Sound quality if fine.

Con:
Although it has 3 inputs (mic/mic/line) I can only get the line input to work well. It took a while to fid the right input (there are several options). Therefore, I have to route everything through my mixer which is a pain.

I am going to change to a "real" AI (likely Behringer UMC202HD) as soon as one becomes available. Trying to buy local....

Update: Found out that I didn't have a stereo splitter cable going in to the line input so now I have split the line input to left/right. I run the instrument through one channel and mic through the other. My latency numbers are extremely good (typically 3.4ms), and I have to say that this solution works very well. I've had no issues at all.

I would recommend this solution if you have a PC.
