This is my first post here, so "hello" to everyone! Over the last few years of playing/recording, it's hard to believe I didn't run across this board sooner! So, I'm hoping to get some advice, and you guys look like the people to turn to. I'm looking for a good drum program to use for home recording. I have some experience using Fruity Loops, but that's about it. I have recently heard the samples from the Drumkit From Hell, and I was very impressed with it. After researching, I see that they have a new Superior version, but multiple DVD's and 35 GB of material is more than I need! So, I think that the standard DFH editions would do fine. I am currently going to use a program to record with on my computer. I will be using a Dell PC with a Pentium 4, 120 GB Hard Drive, 1 GB of RAM, and a SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Soundcard. I realize this isn't as "professional" quality as a lot for people may have, but it's what I have to work with. I have used Cool Edit Pro in the past for recording, and now they have become Adobe Audition. With all that said, here's my questions: Is Adobe Audition 1.0 worth using, or so you think using SONAR would be a better alternative? I see that a lot of people use SONAR, and I've heard a lot of great things about it. If I were to switch to SONAR, do you think there would be a huge learning curve in my transition from Cool Edit Pro? I would like to use the Drumkit From Hell sounds for my drums. I have seen that the Drumkit From Hell 2 comes with a version of a sampling device. If I buy the Drumkit From Hell 2, would I need any other software to use it, or could I make and create drums for my songs using the software that comes with it? Is there anything in Adobe Audition or SONAR that would allow me to use DFH, or perhaps use it with Fruity Loops that I already have? I have been using Fruity Loops for a little while and am fairly comfortable with it (far from advanced, though). If there was a way to use the DFH sounds with it, that would be great, or if the DFH 2 has it's own software, that would be great too. Any insight that you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated. I guarantee I'm a novice compared to most here, so your wisdom is definitely needed. Thanks in advance to everyone who offers some help!
