Ok, I am a drummer who is looking to put together a budget home studio. I have been looking and from what I can see the Tascam US-1800 will provide me with all the options I need..........as long as I can get it to work with me computer system. I have 2 different computers I can use for this, and I need some help figuring out if either of them will work. I have a laptop, Dell Inspirion 1501, it has Windows Vista Basic (32bit I believe), and 1gb of ram. Not sure of the processor on this one. The other computer I have is my PC, Dell Dimension E510 which I have upgraded to 4gb of ram and running Windows XP Media Center Edition. Processor is an Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80GHz. I have been researching and see that tons of people are having problems with this, can anyone tell me if either one of my computers will work correctly with the Tascam US-1800, or which one would be better? Any help will be greatly appreciated. FYI......I am very new at this so if you respond please remember that I am new and do not know all the acronyms and abbreviations that most of you know.
