looks like i'm finally getting round to starting my setup with a view to making current UK hardcore, maybe some old skool if i get time.
I've got some bits of hardware already from ages ago (Bass station etc). When i used Cubase on the Atari, it was horrible.... felt like i spent so much time setting up levels and never got round to making any music at all.
This time i'm going for a more music based approach where i want to fanny about on the fly, but record something if it comes out ok. So, i'm considering possibly either Fruity Loops for my PC or i may shell out and get a Mac and Logic.
Couple things i'm not sure about which may help me make my mind up..
1) I don't have a great soundcard on my PC, can i just by an Audio USB Interface which has MIDI built in, i.e. something like this : http://www.dv247.com/invt/22462/
will that do the job ok ?
Also, i'd be looking to buy a controller keyboard to play the sounds from my existing bass station etc. etc. , will i need an additional MIDI hub to cope with it, as i remember last time i had a horrible daisy chain thing going on from my keyboard to MC303 to Akai S950 and so on...
