Cubse comes for free on many digitech products, and Lexicon products too. It's software is great, modular and can be expaneded in the future. You can buy plug-ins, effects, etc. It can be WAY more cost-effective than pedals when recording.

The learning curve on it, however, means that people with ADHD, people who don't give a sh*t or people who simply don't really care about really recording decent music will hate it.

Not to say that there isn't better programs out there. Universal Audio, for example is great. But very, very expensive. I bought a $150 Lambda Lexicon interface and it came with it free.

I've been messing with it for 3 months, and I'm STILL learning new stuff all the time.

Works best with Vista and all the ram you can throw at it, makes editing times faster.

Cybase comes with Alesis and Yamaha. I just bought a new Yamaha usb mixer today and I'm addicted to recording and editing(kinda pathetic eh?) I would highly reccomend Cubase to anyone.

Yes project to the internet that you pirate software, that's REALLY intelligent.

So yes it is worth it. 150 isnt much.

For $179 plus tax, you can get the Lexicon Lambda for your computer, and it comes with cubase LE4 for free. So that means you get a USB interface where you can hook up 2 inputs, and have loop feeds to effects PLUS have monitor outs, PLUS a headset out with monitor blending into it all for under $200. If you plan on spending more than $100 for the software, consider getting the Lexicon Lambda.

May I suggest another interface that comes with Cubase Le4 as well as other software.

Depends.... what do you have now?

And.... if you take it semi-seriously.... you *always* need more mics.

Cubase is awesome. I bought the full version back when it was VST 3.6, and have continued to keep it up-to-date. I don't have Cubase 5 yet, but I'm sure I will get it. I've not once regretted my purchase.

Cubase LE is free with some hardware that is less than $150 (interfaces for instance) and its pretty good for most things.

I got the lexicon lambda for 179 with a line in/out wire so i can record with my JSX.

The only thing is it says that Cubase 4 LE might not be compatabile with XP. did anyone install it anywasy and it still worked?

There's a link at the bottom to download the instruction pdf, but by all indications, it is made for XP and Vista.

A friend of mine has LE 4 that came bundled with his Tascam 144.

It does work with XP, for me atleast.
I recently bought the PreSonus' firebox and it came with Cubase LE 4. It works perfectly fine.

And IMHO, it's best to master one software until you hit the limitations. Honestly, I'd go for Ableton Live LE for composing, or start getting high-quality plugins. Voxengo, iZotope, and Tritone are great places to start, before you hit Waves, SSL, and UAD.
