Nah I don't play the piano so Ill go with the 49 key. And im using a Macbook Pro so i cand use a PCI audio interface so can you recommend me agood firewire one then? Oh and D what you recommend for software Ableton or Logic?
Oh word, yeah I guess PCI is outta the question lol. Man to be honest, I don't know of any good firewire AI's. They're good ones out there, I just don't know which ones. But I would suggest the Mbox Mini by M-Audio. Good portable USB interface and it has Pro Tools LE on it.
There's up's and downs to both Ableton or Logic. Ableton is a very dope program, very flexible. The thing about it is it's not like any other DAW, which is great but if you ever plan on switching DAW's or eventually start hitting up studios and using Pro Tools, the transition will be complicated.
Me being a Windows user, I can't really vouch for Logic, but I have a friend who's an engineer and he uses Logic for his mixes and he loves it. It's pretty much a necessity if you have a Mac.
