At the moment I have a low budget sound card. I need to upgrade so I'm considering whether I should buy a pro sound card or go the hack and get something like a Digi 002. The reason that I'm asking this question is because I want to use it for making electronic music. I know that it is a good program for audio but might have less options for midi. At the moment I have an A-staion which can only play one part at a time therefore I would be recording every track as audio. Although I imagine this would be the best option so that you can have individual controll over each part that you record. Do you find when creating a song that you use many of the midi capabilities of a prgram when you are compiling it prodomanently with out board synths? If you do take a different approach to recording your synths could you shed some light? Do you think it would be a better option to use sonar3 or logic 5.1 and consider getting a controller for the hands on touch. Whatever you opinion is send in a reply.
