OK - so I can't buy a new 2400 - and Im not going to use fleabay due to my terrible prejudices

anyone got any recommendations on what I would need to buy to have what I would have had on the 2400- but on a Mac platform -

I'm not interested in wintel. :) I get enough of that at work.....

Please help - I need to do my bit to kickstart the economy :( (thats my excuse to the Mrs anyway).

Richard

Maybe not helpfull but i just did a great deal on Ebay. It's all a matter of good communication before you decide to bid. Most people there have good intentions. Sadly the bad stories fly arround and the good are never heard of. Hence my reply.

Big TuDan has swapped all of the AW gear and now runs his studio through one of these. He uses a PC, but Macs would be just as successful.

There are quite a few options of a similar nature for both less (or more) money.

if yer a Mac dude, then I'd go Logic...although, based on your posts from the past, ease of use is a big plus...same for me...in that case, you might try Reaper...its free ez, and cool...

try this link...

http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/REAPER_for_Mac_OS_X/1135746938/3

oh, i'd I say it was free.try it out before you help yer economy...buy effects plug ins to support the economy instead...

good luck...

once your cookin', you''ll take any sh*t*...oops, guess that should go under the "What your listening to" thread...

FRIDAY RULES!!!!!!!!! probably Saturday there....sorry...

Because Sonar 8 Producer edition has just been released , Sonar 7 PE can be obtained for about 3/4 of it's original price of $500 American.

The only reason I would upgrade fro PE-6 is that 7.0 has audio to midi capability. Why have that ? Well , imagine a set of audio drum tracks that you would like convert to midi so you could use for example a different kick drum or snare sound triggered from the original audio tracks...........or change a vocal track drive a synthesizer.

That's pretty powerful stuff.

Sonar provides both Apple Mac and PC platforms.

I paid $150 for PE-6 awile back on E-Bay and found it to be the best bang for the buck I ever spent on gear.

You can get the same end result with Drumagog.

Nuttin' wrong wif a PC for audio. Ya'll just gotta do a little homework first to make sure all yer components will work together, and if you can, dedicate it to audio ONLY. Macs may be simpler to set up as audio workstations, but they're F'ing expensive. Save yer money and optimize your PC and DL reaper for free. OK I'm done :D

Hm this is interesting.
Does anyone know if Cubase LE is good for a PC?
I got a free copy with my H4 handy field recorder.

I also have Guitar Tracks PRO.
