Hey. Thanks for the reply. I realize my first post was kind of vague. Sorry about that. I posted again and tried to be a little more specific. I'm looking to build a project studio, and it would be great if I could EVENTUALLY record a whole band at one time. As far as what platform, I want to work with digital, not tape. I've seen the cost and difficulty of working with analog, and I don't think I can handle that (at least not yet). Mac or PC? Well, I have very limited experience with Mac's but I'm a quick learner and I'm sure that my present PC is inadequate for making professional quality recordings. I do want my finished product to be of professional quality and on CD's. I'd like to be able to record, mix, and master the music all myself. As far as the types of music, it would vary. Not much hip-hop or the like, though I don't want to limit myself, for I have interest in all types of music. If you could, please read my other post, the subject is "sorry, i wrote before i read", it will tell you what it is that I'm looking for. Thanks again for the help. Much appreciated.
