    I'm some what new to recording and am new to the forum and I need some help with what to get

    Ok so I'm going to upgrade from my BR600 to a computer with an interface ect. One thing I'm set on is using a mac. The interface I wanted to get is a presonus firestudio 26x26. The program I wanted to use is Sonar 8 but reviews have said that the presonus and sonar doesn't work well together. Has anyone had this problem and what are some other combinations I can do so I get the most user friendly system. Thanks!

    I don't use Mac but do have Presonus gear, some people I know are using Mac/Logic/Presonus and are not having any issues, the new Firestudio is shipping with their own recording software Studio One Artist but I don't recall anyone posting anything about it here.

    The Logic Platform is killer. It's got a bit of a learning curve, or at least it did for me because I was used to Pro Tools, but it's my favorite GUI. I use a PreSonus interface with little to no software/sync problems to date.

    Does Sonar even run in Apples OS now? Thought it was PC only.

    No, looks like the V-Studio 100 will work with core audio though.

    I don't think Sonar will be mac compatible anytime soon.

    I also recommend using Logic. Like Guitarfreak said, there's a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, your workflow is fast, smooth, and effective. I used the Peachpit Express Logic Guide to help me learn the DAW. It's a great book. http://www.peachpit.com/store/product.aspx?isbn=0321636805

    It maybe be a little pricey for a book, but it's a really great tool for learning Logic.

    Not only is this a great book/DVD+w/lessons+media, you can also learn a great deal on the Logic Pro Help forum with the author himself!
