I think the hardware vs. software decision depends on what you're doing. To be honest, I wouldn't ever want to go back to using my R16 in standalone mode for recording, but then I generally don't just set everything up to record sets. I usually do tracks one at a time and it's so much easier to do that in audio interface mode with a laptop at my side.selbalicious wrote:My personal mantra is: never try to use software to do a job that hardware can do. Hardware is (in general) much more robust and adept at doing certain things. Take advantage of that and let the strengths of software (it's visual, effects are usually easier to apply, editing is generally easier) do what software is good at.

I do most of my stuff on the R8, then just transfer the Wav. either to Garageband or directly to iTunes. However, I find it is a royal pain doing any sort of editing on the R8, and am dying to figure out Cubase. Spurred on by this thread, I'll try later today to download the e-licensing thingy...how's their tech support?
