I'm currently using an 'Edirol UA-20
' as my interface, along with 'Sonar5 Producer' as my software, through a Dell Dimension with Windows XP home edition. Because this computer has other software, as well as the internet on it, I can't seem to get a good recording with this set-up, so I want to change to a system only for recording.
I'm looking at the 'Pro Tools LE 003' and the 'Yamaha AW2400
'. I've been reading that the '003' can make good quality recordings, has a great software bundle package, but is only good for prepping material for the larger 'Pro Tools' studios. The 'AW2400
' seem to be an all around work station with good quality recording, but does it do a better job than the '003'?. I'm building a studio in one of the rooms of my house, and want to have a system with no connection to internet or other office type software. I want to use Mac as my computer. So do you think it's best to use the 'Pro Tools LE 003' with the 'Mac' alone, or use the 'Yamaha AW2400
' as my work station, and use the mac with a software for the mixing and mastering? Any suggestions on what is the best way to go?
