Here is my need explained:
I play in a band and have a MixWiz 16 DX2
I intend on recording from the line outs of the mix wiz for practice and gigs for later mix down.
What I want/need from the software is the following:
- Master mixdown GUI with a mixer like feeling
- Decent reverb
- Decent channel eq
- Decent master eq
- Easy use of .WAV or .MP3 files from recording to put into the multi-track setup on the software
That's really it. I know that lots of people that record also need tons of audio editing features, but I already have Adobe Audition that I use for that (version 1.5 updated from my beloved Cool Edit Pro ).
I know that lots of people want/need virtual instruments and MIDI tracks .... but not me.
I may do a few simple over-dubs of myself and my acoustic guitar using my Creative Audigy 2 Platinum eX and a Allen and Heath ZED 10Fx as well as recording a few Karaoke parties .... nothing serious though.
I am not looking to spend lots of money on this (<$200.00). It needs to handle at least 8 tracks (band has 2 guitars, 2 vocals, bass and vDrums).
What would you guys suggest.
