Well I had some help with teh DAW setup and when it arrives I will have a: P4 3.0 1.0 GB DDR2 WD Raptor 74 GB 10k SATA System Drive 160 GB SATA Data Drive E-MU 1820M Nvidia Quattro NVS4 /w dual 17" LCD I have used Reason and ACID for years but i think it may be tiem to go a little more advanced. I have read many good thigns about Cubase, Logic, PT, etc. BUt i'm not sure which way to go. I tihnk PT would be a whole new investment and I have already sepnt plenty towards hardware. With logic I would have to try and find 5.5 since mac took it over. a few of the other options i have seen ot tried are Sonar, Orion, Samplitude, the many variations of cubase as well as nuendo. SO I am looking for some feedback on what would be a good route to take. I am willign to soend 500-1000 if it is really worth it. I can pickup SX3 for around $380. Thanks in advance.
