Typical uses of sound cards or sound card functionality include providing the audio component for multimedia applications such as music composition, editing video or audio, presentation, education and entertainment games and video projection. The drawback of digital connection is price, as the components involved with digital connection are more expensive the cost of a home theater receiver and a set of speakers is far higher than the cost of a set of analog speakers for your PC , the reason being the use of a more expensive codec and also the cost of the decoders for several additional enhancements, like the abovementioned Dolby Pro Logic. In that respect, their role and intended purpose is more similar to a specialized multi-channel data recorder and real-time audio mixer and processor, roles which are possible only to a limited degree with typical consumer sound cards. Certain early arcade machines made use of sound cards to achieve playback of complex audio waveforms and digital music, despite being already equipped with onboard audio.

One of the limitations of consumer sound cards is their comparatively large sampling latency; this is the time it takes for the AD Converter to motherboadr conversion of a sound sample and transfer it to the computer’s main memory.
The typical “consumer-grade” sound card is intended for generic home, office, and entertainment purposes with an emphasis on playback and casual use, rather than catering to the needs of audio professionals.

A card can be used, again in conjunction with free or commercial software, to analyse input waveforms. Later, ISA cards like the SoundBlaster AWE series and Plug-and-play Soundblaster clones eventually became full-duplex and supported simultaneous recording and playback, but at the expense of using up two IRQ and DMA channels instead of one, making them no different from having two half-duplex sound cards in terms of configuration.

The source may be a CD or DVD, a file, streamed audio, or any external source connected to a sound card input.
From around many motherboards incorporated integrated “real” non-codec sound cards, motherbord in the form of a custom chipset providing something akin to full Sound Blaster compatibility, providing relatively high-quality sound. The resulting audio, while functional, suffered from heavily distorted output and low volume, and usually required all other processing to be stopped while sounds were played.
