I’ve decided to go with Reason and Record for my audio work. While Logic Express has some things that I liked, I felt that Reason was the best choice for my needs. I will likely use Record for the time being for final mixes of Reason songs, but I would like to eventually get an Apogee One to do some recording of guitar and bass. Drums? I would need a proper room and too many mics, so that seems unlikely for quite a while. I have to read up on using line-level signals vs. hi-z signals on audio interfaces, as my bass uses active pickups. Right now I have a Fender Stratocaster, but for the type of playing I want to do it may be sold for a Gibson Explorer. Only time will tell…
