    Well..

    I just got a M-Audio 1814 as an early birthday present from my birtdhay, and I really want to get more serious about my song writing, So I need a more economic and more usable recording software.

    Now this device is compatible with bolth, but I would like to know which would be a better bet, pros and cons are welcome :).

    Protools is a MAC software while Cubase is for Windows. If you have MAC than go for Protools.

    How difficult is Cubase to use? I started trying to use Reaper, but never really jumped in with both feet and only got to the point where I could record whatever snippets I needed to (not really recorded anything past clips demoing pickups/guitars).

    Edit: Now that I think about it, could perhaps you (Pavel) or any of the other IG instructors write an in depth guide of “how to” home record? perhaps cover other things such as software for backing tracks, or drum software at the very least. That way we could have a rough idea of a price tag to generate amateur home recordings. I know I would find that immensely helpful. Sean, you’re more than welcome to jump in here as well buddy 😉

    Well, you can get M-Audio powered protools, which is almost the same thing, as the mac version..

    ProTools is Windows as well, I have it and have used it, and I don’t own a Mac, isn’t that like a burger or something?

    I have ProTools, and Sonar 7 Producer Edition, but I prefer to use Reaper, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than the others, $50 non-commercial license, and $250 for a full license, same product in both cases, just you need the full license to legally use it to make money with. The only gripe I have with Reaper would be it’s midi editing, but it will get there.

    If I may widen your horizons, you might want to check out FL Studio (old fruity loops)!

    I’m using it and have found it much more intuitive than Cubase, and it has a really comfortable GUI.
    It’s also really good if you’re into sampling.
