    I have been using a Roland 1880 for years now and I have decided to slowly move over to computer (pc) based recording. I track drums and full bands on the 1880 and will eventually want to be able to do that on the PC. For now due to the lack of funds I was thinking of getting the Fast track Pro interface and Pro-tools M-powered. Is this a recommended route? i understand that I will only be able to track 2 at a time with the fast track pro. The idea is to expand in the future.
    I have been using Acid home studio to create music loops using my own drum loops, noises, etc. Would I be able to use Acid along with this version of Pro Tools? Can they link? Would there be a better program that decently user friendly, expandable, and can be used with Acid or has it's own beat based loop capabilities. Any help will be very much appreciated.

    Maybe I'm crazy but, can't you get an Mbox 2 for the price of a Fast Track Pro and Protools M Powered? I know there have been some issues with the Mbox but there have been an equal number of issues with PT Mpowered.

    I thought the main issues were with the Mbox2 and ProTools LE. I would like to have gear that is compatible with many programs & systems. I guess I need to look further into the Mbox2. It does come with a lot of cool features including the possibility of 4 inputs if you are using the digital inputs with the analog.

    Any other suggestions our there??? :wink:
