Ok I am fairly interested in changing my setup. Basically what I think would benefit a lot of people is a:
- Cheap setup
- Medium prices setup
- Expensive setup
Detailing what would make nice combinations and what would definatly be needed. MIDI and just plain audio combined what do you recommend for all 3 price levels?

I'll tell you my setup, you can decide whether it's cheap or not

Cubase VST 5.0 - 55 (bought it through the collage I studied music tech at)
Soundblaster Audiogy external soundcard - 90 (approx.)
Free soundfonts - Free

That does it for me, oh yeah, and the keyboard I have cost me about 180, but that was ages ago, you can pick up a decent one for under 50 now adays

Hey, so here's my setup (I would consider this a med. priced setup)

Sonar 4 Producer Ed. ($350)
Gigastudio ($400)
Mackie 1402VLZ ($350)
Pair of Event 20/20's paired with a Mackie M1400i (total $700)
Good controller (varies; anywhere over $200ish)

Not including your computer (hey...PC's sound JUST as good!), you can get something that sounds totally pro for about $2000. If you want to sub out Giga for Kontakt (Kontact? aw heck...), you don't have to buy samples. Just a thought.

Good luck.

Remember: Gear is only as good as the engineer. You don't need millions to sound like it!

Ha I am just interested.

Got myself like this:
Sonar 2 XL
Gigastudio 2.5
Some libraries
Adobe Audition for post editing

Interested in the more hardware side though, oh yes I got a 6fire soundcard for the gsif support.

Yo, man. I forgot my soundcard!

I use the Echo Layla 24/96. It runs about $700 now (I think), and I adore it. I've used Echo products for a while and have always had top notch results.

After a few hours I see it looks good... but I don't understand 80% of the  "features" just where can one find info on what the hell all of that is?

Simon, AIM me and we can talk about it. Nothing too scary...

The gist...

*Multiple inputs and outputs of varying context.
*Awesome 24 bit sound (CD's are 16 bit...you have to convert the quality down)
*Multi-client audio and midi -- the ability to record while you play back, and record directly into the unit from one output to any input...
*PC and Mac support...for the Giga user in us all
*Solid reliability and good customer support

Hope this helps.
