    ok, I was thinking of getting this


    and one of these


    so I can serf the net at work, and in bed, but...

    I was thinking of...
    can I use a earlier version of cu base and just use this as a portable 4 track? just to get my ideas down on the move?.

    I could always install XP on it if needs be, if an earlier version of cu base support high speed usb then if I run it at a lower sample rate then I can't see why it shouldn't work?

    any ideas?

    I've seen some less than sterling reviews for the M-Audio.

    Problems with latency and installation, IIRC.

    The laptop should be fine, with an external drive of course.

    my take is the opposite... i do parts of records with a piece of m-audio gear.. and a macbook pro

    Wouldn't it be more cost effective to just purchase a 4 track?

    Hey, man.
    You can't surf the net at work, or in bed, on a 4-track!

    Check out the Presonus FireBox or even the Inspire 1394 instead of the M-Audio Fast Track USB. The Presonus is IEEE1394/Firewire. Not only is Firewire more stable, it sounds better than USB for music recording. And the Presonus usually comes with Cubase LE, which is fine for your purposes.
