Im about to buy a Mac notebook soon for Uni, and I was just wondering a few things..
1) Cubase LE - Will it work on a Mac?
2) Alesis 8channel USB Mixer - There wont be any problems using this is there?

Also, what does everyone think of garageband? Any good like?

Probably.

i love garageband. it's probably the best recording software i've used, and it's free, so that's pretty sweet. my friend hooked up a line 6 toneport and recorded easily to garageband and stuff, so it's pretty versatile too apparently. lots of tracks, good loops for drums and stuff, nice effects. sorry to sound like a fanboy, but i really like it.

i can't speak for that other stuff you mentioned because i haven't used them, but USB stuff should be compatible.

Me neither, due to him not being alive and all.

2.1GHz

* Intel Core 2 Duo
* 1GB DDR2 Memory
* 120GB hard drive1
* Intel GMA X3100 graphics

£704.00 - Its like a heartbreaking amount of money ahah.


Also, yeah, Vista sucks haha, i dont like the fans on computers because they interfere with my recording to much, and theyre slow.

1 gig in a mac is like 5gig ina microsoft.
I think.. Well PC world guy said its a lot more than 1 gig in a microsoft is.

Yeah well MACs are media computers foremost. It should run fine. Kinda small harddrive though. I'd have that filled in a short period of time. Maybe look into a Buffalo External Harddrive? They are quite cheap and it's always a good idea to keep your files safe on one in case of any trouble.

What are you recording through? All software/hardware i use are MAC compatible so i don't think you will have any problems. If you do you can always use something else...there are tons of software!

Garageband isn't that good at all.
Get Logic Pro, it's expensive but a friend or someone you know might have it so you can borrow it off them.
It's also like 45gig.
