Member for

Im lookin to upgrade my home studio. Right now i have a yamaha DGX 88 key keyboard. Laptop that don't have enoghu memory just enough to run Reason 3.0, Tascam us 122 some mics and samson speakers. I want to get a Mac laptop just for recording (no internet using), reason 4, zoom hd16cd. Now will this zoom hd16 allow me to record music from the interface directly to my Mac?? Instead of to the zoom it's self then transfering. Or will the M-Audio
ProjectMix IO Control Surface do the job??

Get your mac and an interface that comes bundled with a limited edition of one of the multitrack apps. Cubase LE is very friendly, and oes all that the Zoom does and an awful lot more. It's also expandable, in terms of being able to run Instrument plugings ofr real drums, etc.

well i was hoping that the zoom would be able to record directly to my computer but "Amnesia180" cleared that up!!
Do you know what interface is capable of recording direclt to the computer (somthing like the Tascam us122) but with at least 8 xlr's??
I think to project mix does the job but im not sure!
