Excellent.

I can't wait to try it out.

If it really is better than pro tools I'll sell my MBox.

Or I could probably just use the MBox with Ardour...

Digital Performer

I use Garageband when recording simple, on the fly stuff.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

ProTools with an MBox 2 Mini. I also run the old, 5.5 version of Logic Audio Platinum for MIDI editing and because I have a lot of instruments for the EXS 24mkII. I'm looking into complementing those with a 2nd Win app. that can do VST to get to use some plugins and instruments I like. The old Logic is usually able to keep up but something newer wouldn't be unwelcome. I have my sights set on a free version of Samplitude 9 SE. We'll see how it goes.

Logic Studio 8 and Garageband (I'm on a Mac).
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

I use Digital Performer mostly for my recordings... does my midi stuff great, has an awesome interface (if you believe the reviews arguabely the best interface) and is KINDA a mix between protools and logic. I use Logic 8 for all my midi and sample based stuff for my dance music and junk like that... also when i need to do something that i cant find in DP. I am looking around for a 002 rack to get protools just so i can learn it though, and i'll get around to buying cubase one of these days. I figure... if your good at all of em... then your more valuable than someone who cant use anything but protools.

Well seeing as I made the sticky thread with the list of recording programs out there it'd be silly to say that I only use one :P I mostly use Cubase SX3 (I would upgrade but I just bought some new KRK RP-8 studio monitors for ~$500, boy did they beat the crap out of the competition in a listening test) and Adobe Audition, never migrated to the Mac. If you stay true to simple rules like getting the best recording to start, having the musicians perform a rock-solid take, and using proper room acoustics, the program you use to mix isn't too too important--unless you are doing SFX/broadcasting/extreme artistics.

The best program I can recommend is called the Audio Wizard Pro Ear Trainer. This program is designed to do what real music schools teach, or at least a portion of it. This program teaches you to recognize what different boosts and cuts at certain frequencies sound like, and to apply them to your recordings. They have a 7 day demo and this program only costs $50 - http://www.audiowizardproeartrainer.com/ - try out the demo and get ready to learn.
