Hello, I'm new to the forum, and This seems to be just what I'm looking for. Since I've been on my own with recording for the past 5 years, I've had little information from others and have done lots of reading. The question I have now is about getting a new PC. I've got the $2K set aside for a new dedicated DAW and the Protools LE/digi001, however that's as much as I've decidewd on to upgrade my current set up. Here's what I have so far.... Kurweil K2000 & K1200 Alesis Nanoverb, 3630 compressor, and RA150 Tascam 202MKIII Rode NT-1 condensor Mackie 1202 VLZ Cakewalk v.5.0 Dinosaur 166mhz/32ram/2.5Ghz clone Acoustic 3311 monitors That's probably pathetic, but it's all mine and now i'm looking to spend. The objective is just better quality recordings and the thing I've been missing, full duplex capability, and something with multi-channel effects for depth and better imaging, currently my rig can only do global effects, since I'm working with MIDI to a large extent. Beforehand, I've been adding vocals using the Nanoverb and a one shot approach for laying down the mix of MIDI and vocal. Here's the questions I have, one, what are the minimum needs for the motherboard, CPU, RAM, Harddrive, DVD/CD/RW and other internal components as well as any additional peripherals that are helpful once you have the Digi001/PTLE setup? I want to get lots of editing capability in there, so I'm sure RAM needs to be around 512, and I'm looking at a minimum 1.5 Ghz Pc, and 40G hard drive. The second question, since PT seems to be a little lacking in the MIDI editing department, is it relativelely easy to import MIDI files from my old Cakewalk program into PT? That's it for now, any help will be appreciated!
