It's an excellent package, I have the cracked SX2 and I decided to buy into Cubase for the support. SE does more than enough for what a typical home user will endeavor into. Nice upgrade path if you ever do decide you need more horsepower. SE was well worth the $$$. Very stable and works with all my VSTi and DXi plugins.Guitarzone said:Cubase SE is nice and only about $99..
Get a computer; if you are just doing a track or two at once it shouldn't require a real monster so maybe you can get something cheap and "old" or maybe you have one. I don't know that anything less than 800Mhz or so is going to be much use. Then you have a few options including Linux with Ardour or Windows with Audacity. Either one will do the trick for a basic digital recorder. Ardour might actually be major overkill for what you need. They are both free except that Windows is not. Then you just have to figure out how you are going to connect to the PC. You need line-level input so a mixer or a pre-amp of some sort. If you have a Line6 POD XT you can hook it up to your usb and use it like a sound card. Or if you have something else that is not USB compat. you can rig up a converter and plug it into the input on the soundcard.diamondaveroth said:Hi, I just want to record my ideas (riff, solos, etc) on something cheap and something that's decent. any suggestions.
