    What is the best software to use when using a firepod to record with? Also price? and also on a mac and pc?
     
  2. I think the Firepod comes with cubase...depends on what you need, but that's a solid program. You can't use it with Pro Tools, because all their stuff is proprietary. Check out mackie traction for ease of use, or Audacity for a free editing tool/recordingmix.

    Anything other than ProTools will it record........unless you already have a protools interface I believe you can use the firepod in conjunction with an 002 or 001 or HD system...don't quote me on that though I may be wrong
     
  4. Pro Tools is pretty hyped anyway...I'm not a big fan.

    Try Audacity. It's free, gives you an idea of what it's like to multi-track, and then download the Cubase, Sonar, Cakewalk, Traktion, etc. Demos and see what works best for you. I think a lot of it's a matter of taste.

    I would stay away from cheap plug-ins. Most of them sound cheap, and you'll end up getting thin, over-processed sounds. Unless that's what you really want...

    It's not necessarily the program that's hyped, it's the Pre's and the hardware that make protools sound wonderful....that's my opinion anyway
     
  6. I think protools is great for mixing and editing, but that the hardware is just ridiculously overpriced for what you get. LE software with a controller that has 8 faders for $2,500?

    Seems kind of lame to me anyway.
