Hi everybody, I'd just like your 2 cents when it comes to a portable DAW running Cubase 5 (for now, but I might consider upgrading sometime soon if I feel the need to). By portable, I mean it should be laptop-based. I'm considering sticking with a laptop running Windows for now however, considering I do things OTHER than music production (part-time, work-related stuff for income) and need to keep this in mind (the fact that a laptop running Windows might be better suited towards this than a Macbook running OS X). I also might want to play the odd game or 2, so I think that should also have to be kept int mind (I hope this won't clash with its use for sound however). Regarding what I'll be doing, for starters, I'll mainly just be recording, editing and mixing guitars for the time being (hobbyist). IDEALLY, I'd like for this system to be quite FLEXIBLE however (in case I need to do work (whether paid or unpaid) of various kinds; basically anything 'sound', portable and non-portable). So I should be able to expand upon the "only being used for guitar recordings for now", possibly in the near future. I know there are couple of threads that have dealt with this question in the past, but I'm not always sure they're concurrent with the latest technology that is out there at the time of this writing. Any advice perhaps? Or articles? Recommendations? Any help would be MUCH appreciated! P.S. I'm from South Africa BTW! Shipment would have to be taken into account regarding my poll (if I decide to order from any of the 3). Thanks!
