I'm in the market for my first ever full, or higher end DAW.
I've been working with Garageband, got the demo for Live and Record.
I'll be running it on my Macbook 2.26Ghz, 4Gb Ram laptop.
My needs are as follows. I want to record my 4 piece band, I also want to further my productions in Reason to incorporate live instrumentation, or do audio recordings etc. I also intend to use my laptop live as a softsynth using Reason, but any live usage of the DAW would be a massive bonus.
Now, I've narrowed it down to the following:
Logic - seems to be well respected, like that live application to it too.
Record - I'm familiar with Propellerhead software, and like the idea of how player friendly it seems
Live - not looked into the recording use for it too much, but I appreciate it's live usage is fairly immense.
Not really interested in Cakewalk, Cubase or any of those.
What are your thoughts on the above then please?
