    What do I do first? I got m-audio firewire and I guess i'l use the reason adapted, I'm an old reel to reel guy and would like to put my old stuff on cd.But I just dont get this new digital gear.
    You know it looks easy, the reason mixer board... But how do I get it to talk to the m-audio hardwear?

    Put your old stuff on a CD or use the soundcard with Reason?

    To put your old stuff on a CD, you need to connect the outputs of your tape machine to the line inputs on the FireWire 410, set the levels so the interface doesn't peak, and start recording in an audio edit program, like WaveLab, SoundForge, Cubase, etc. But note that Reason can't record any audio, it's pure MIDI.

    To use your soundcard with Reason, you have to select the M-Audio FireWire 410 ASIO drivers in the Preferences menu of Reason. There should be an audio setup page. If you have a MIDI keyboard connected, it should be found under the MIDI setup.

    Did that clear up some things?

    Man thats great feedback, I can forget REASON. I diddent know it was midi software. I dont need that. I will check into one of your software sugestions. Thanks a lot.

    Reason is really powerful, an awesome tool, especially when used in conjunction with a ReWire compatible sequencer like Cubase.

    I would recommend you to check out Kristal Audio Engine - a 16 channel free sequencer that supports VST effects, but no MIDI.
