ok, I was thinking of getting this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/productinfo.asp?WebProductID=697320 and one of these http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=332107 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?
