hi you guys i accidentaly found this forum and i think it's a great one. Could you guys help me to setup my daw? it's a relatively old system and certainly a very old sound card, but i don't have the money and i think these things could make a decent enough homestudio for me to play with so here's the hardware: p4 1.8 Ghz 256 ddr ram don't know the motherboard brand (sorry) 40gb Hdd geforce 3 titanium 200 64 Mb and the soundcard: guillemot maxi isis with breakout box. here's a link to the soundcard: http://www.harmony-central.com/Events/WNAMM99/Guillemot/Maxi-Sound-ISIS.html a m-audio keystation 49es midi keyboard because of the soundcard, i have to install windows 98 to the system. i have 98 Se so that's no problem. Is it best to install as less as possible to the pc becoz i will only use it for recording? than for recording software, maybe first my intentions: - i play guitar and write my own songs - i've been a drummer for 9 years but i don't have drums anymore so they have to be software too. - i mainly play rock what i'm using now: - cubase sx and or cubase vst32 - fruityloops with the drumkit from hell sounds to make the drumtracks i also have here sonar 4 PE but i haven't tried that one out yet. for the guitar; i will be buying a vox tonelab or a line6 pod in the really soon future so can you guys tell me or give me tips about what to install and stuff? thanks in advance !!!
