I have to buy another PC, GigaStudio with CDs of real instruments, 2 high quality soundcards like Delta66 ou Delta 1010, a mixer. If I can find a well-payed job...<br><br>Anyway. Is Cubasis SX much better than Cubase5. Cause I never heard of it.   ???

[quote author=Ronnys_Noomies link=board=rant;num=1043448232;start=0#1 date=01/24/03 at 20:05:25]How do you like the Soundblaster for this purpose? I had a Midiman PCI card that had RCA ins/outs, and it really helped the sound a lot. I don't know much about recording, because I never can find the time for it, or the patience. But, I have Cakewalk Guitar Studio 2 on my computer, with a SurReal soft synth under it, and a little mixer. I also MIDI my Emu synth into the computer and out to the speakers, so I can do a lot. If........[/quote]I really like the sound blaster card.  It comes with a built in effects, surround sound capabilities.  If you want to learn more about it go to there website.  There is a fountain of information on there.  Well worth the money.  Plus it works with most software.  I will never go back to any other product, unless it was Mark of the Unicorn.  But amn, I don't have the jing for that. Thanks for inquiring...

Depending on how much live recording or editing you do the roland hard disc recorders are great! Ive had a 1680 for three years now and that unit payed for itself within a years time. The new 2480 is much better and easier to use! ;D
