Pro Tools Free
ProTools Free is TOTALLY bait to get people hooked. I really want the virtual track capability that Cubase and the higher-end ProTools systems have, but my hardware is maxed out so i'm stuck with a software-only solution for now. Ideally, i'd go for a full-blown ProTools system, though it's really too pricey for hobby recording.
After my xmas bills have been paid i might scrape together the cash to buy Cubase VST 5. Buying the PowerBook and all the crap to go along with it came at a bad time, but i couldn't pass up the deal.
Hopefully my union at school will settle our strike by then as well, and i can get back to teaching and get that supplementary income back.
I was thinking of getting a Digigram VX Pocket digital I/O card for my PowerBook, but they're like $1600! But it would be cool to go from my guitar into my VF-1 (which has 24-bit convertors) and then go digital into ProTools or Cubase. And i could set up ANYWHERE to record and mix.
Actually, i could do that now, only not with digital I/O. Studio to go, anyone?
