I'm a newbie and would really appreciate a little feedback, though I suspect I know the answer...
I'm not marvelous with computers by I can get by, my bro just put me together a new pc. The main purpose being so I can record a new CD for my band. I've done this before with Cakewalk HomeStudio 9 but I want to get a little more upmarket now.
The pc has an Athlon 64 3000 (8LN-SLI I think) and is running XP x64.
I didn't know anything about x64 at the time but I'm now getting the impression that support from third party software / hardware companies is scarce.
I have been after a Firebox because it seems the cheapest way of being able to mic up a drum kit effectively, and it seems to be a fairly decent package all round.
I have looked on the Presonus site and the Steinberg site (as the Firebox comes bundled with Cubase SE) and there is no mention of support for x64. I have e-mailed both companies but haven't heard back.
Has anyone tried this setup? I get the impression that I'm gonna have to dual boot with XP Pro as well in order that I can use the Firebox.
Just had a chat with the guy who does the pc's at work and he said I was crazy to get x64 *sigh*
