    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.

    I generally don't tweak my outboard synth (JV-1000) anymore, since I mostly use vsti's and they're much easier to tweak. But when my main sequencer was the Roland MC-50 (built into the JV-1000), I did it all the time, and used bulk dumps at the beginning of the song to save the changes. In Logic, you can create (or maybe even download) Environment pages which allow you to edit and save your synth settings with the song; this, perhaps, is ideal for you, but it is a doozie to try and understand the environment. Of course you could use the above method with any sequencer.
