I'm looking for a program that I can make drum beats with, and a program that I can do mixing etc. with, like Protools or Cubase. I hear these names thrown around alot, I know Protools is considered the king but it's very pricey, but what do you guys recommend? I'm hoping for economical as in under the $100 mark but I'm open to whatever's out there. I want something that is solid and works, period. Something that does it better than my Cakewalk HomeStudio version 2. As for the drum program thing, I have no idea what is out there, but I had Reason for a short period of time and it was ok. Help a brotha out.
