    I recently switched over to the Mac world to do some video and music recording and have begun with a little iMac 1.8 G5 and 1GB of ram. I picked up an EDIROL UA-25 for the USB music interface and have been mucking around with garage band etc. playing keboard and guitar through it.

    If I was to record our band just for kicks, would I be better off with ProTools LE 6.4 for the software end of it, or would you all recommend something like Cubase or Logic. I am talking about the low end of these programs or lite versions as am not to interested in spending piles of cash on something just to record some band tunes.

    Would the protools LE software work with the EDIROL USB interface to record or is it solely dedicated to an Mbox?

    It will only work with the mbox, which costs 400, and includes the PT software.

    Protools software only works with protools hardware. Using protools LE your options are 001(discontinued), Mbox, 002, 002rack. But you said you already have an interface so you'll need different software. I can't personally recommend anything, I use protools and the only other DAW i've used is digital performer and that was only for midi sequencing(though i was very fond of it for that purpose). Troll around the boards and see what people are talking about.

    May be hard to record a band with your interface, unless you just want to make a stereo recording.

    A firewire interface like the MOTU 828 would allow you to record 8 different sources at once.

    The next logical step from Garage Band, is Logic Express check the Apple site for details.
