I have been playing around laying down tracks for about 5 years so I have a pretty good basic knowledge of mixing. We are just getting our new home recording studio going, so we are still buying and no doubt getting rid of some gear we jumped on early on. We have an Apple G5 and have just purchased pro-tools 8 because this apple operating system is not Intel, so we had to go with version 8, but i was wondering which is better pro-tools, or Cubase? I would like to hear on any of the other as well. We are only looking at this system for mastering, not mixing. Below is a picture of our newly built recording console that host a Tascam SX1-LE. It's not finished yet, still have hardware to install a long with gear.
