Hello, I am new to this forum . Iam planning on purchasing a 002R here in the next couple of months. And was wondering what the word was on these systems. i was thinking about getting one of the Sweetwater Creation Stations the cube or the pro i don't think there is much difference in them.-I'm not a computer whiz as far as building computerthat would go hand in hand w/protools so supposedly this one does. - My concern with the 002r is the# of preamps - we will be using this system to record our band(drums-guitar-vocals-bass) to learn how it works to start off. what are some cost effective pres I could check out .I read something about "the brick" and also some Presonus stuff anyways any help would be good. thanks How about a little feedback????? PLEASE!!!!!! :?
