Hello everyone! I've been messing around with a small personal studio setup for about a year now. I started off using Audacity, and then picked up Pro Tools M-Powered Essentials with the 49 key MIDI keyboard. Lately, I've been very frustrated with the software, since it will only allow me to record two channels at a time. So my search for alternatives lead me to Mixcraft 5, and I have to say I've been somewhat impressed with it so far. I'm not a huge fan of the interface yet, but I'm sure some of that is just my unfamiliarity with it. I'd like to try Cubase or Sonar, but there isn't any demos available for either of them. I'm on a really limited budget (not really doing any work for anyone other than my band) so I'm a bit hesitant to drop $300 on some software that I've never used. I'm really looking for suggestions on which way to go here. I'm about to get an 8 channel digital interface, and I really need the ability to record multiple channels (otherwise the interface is useless!) My big beefs with Pro Tools so far is it's crippled recording ability, and the crappy interface it comes with (tends to crash when it gets a peaked signal, like when someone drops a mic or whatnot) All suggestions are welcome! Thanks in advance!
