clueless beginner needs help

hi all. i desperately want to get into digital recording, I'm going to buy either Cubase or protools just to get recordings done in my room.i have used both Cubase and protools in college before and i found Cubase much easier to use but protools is pretty much the industry standard. i need 16 tracks or more, access to midi instruments, the ability to put in notes free hand,quantise,convert to score and covert to mp3. what would you recommend buying? cheers!

Digidesign 002 comes wih pro tools. That should be what your looking for. If you can't drop $3,000 then go with the M-Box. Alot cheaper, but you get pro tools. You can quantize and create notes with either pro tools or cubase I'd also recommend getting the Waves diamond bundle too. I believe the newest bundle from Waves is called Mercury. Probably more expensive though. One last thing...DONT convert to MP3. It will ruin your music. Peace
