Alright, what comp has the best software for recording? i plan on using (with either) a mixer, a better sound card, and some mic's, with some third party software to record with (N-Track, Pro Tools, all that). Would that be a good cheap way to do a decent recording job? or is their a cheaper way? i was planning on getting a notebook so it would be mobile. So, any sugjestions? ive been into computers for a long time, but don't know a WHOLE lot about the audio/recording side. I know how to setup everything, and record, just not spec's. like the diffrent cards you can get, the software, and so on. keep in mind that this is going to TRY to be as cheap as possible.
