I am putting together a home recording studio and I am trying to make it pretty decent. Read that as better than my previous rig. The guitar player from my old band is a recording engineer. I asked him a hardware question and we were off to the races. His most vehement opinion, not the one I was asking about in the first place, was not to use a PC to record, but to get a mac. I have only ever used PC's. I know from the people that use mac's regularly that they always love them. They report far less OS probs than PC users live with and all that. But how steep is the learning curve to get the hang of a mac. Would Protools look and work the same on both? And how much is a good enough mac to record on going to cost compared to a PC? On the PC side: familiarity possibly cost On the mac side: superior reliability allegedly more intuitive function What else do I need to keep in mind? Help me guys.
