I wanted to say that I have a few of your older libraries and I very much appreciate the dedications. 'nuff said.
To everyone else (or spectrum as well):
I'm pretty set on creating a little studio using at least Atmospheres and RMX, maybe Trilogy, as well as a few other toys: Absynth, Kompakt, Cameleon, maybe FM7 or Pro-53, and am torn between Cubase SE or SONAR 4 SE.
I've seen a few posts that indicate that all three VIs work well in SONAR, and a few other posts that indicate that they only have partial automation capacity, or that you have to do a few workarounds to get automation to work. I would think that Cubase, being a native VST platform, doesn't have these problems.
I'm also very interested in being able to use a 'freeze' function, and am wondering if the VIs can be 'frozen.' I should also note that most of my work will be very synth and sample based (pretty much entirely from the beginning) although I may be adding recorded vocals and such later on, but probably no more that 4-8 tracks.
So again my quandary is this: SONAR or Cubase? Current hardware is a P4 3.0 with a gig of RAM (probably will upgrade that to 2), 2x 200G SATA HDDs, and a SOundblaster Live card. Question about hardware: Is it possible to use the SOundblaster Stereo out or should I plan on investing in something a bit more pro?
Thanks for all your help....
