  • Best portable midi keyboard/audio interface for 2008 imac with logic studio?

    Hi there, i am a fairly new VSL SE user (1 year and counting!!!!). I recently invested some money in a new imac with 4 gb of Ram, 250 gb HD and 2.4 Ghz processor with Logic Pro 8 DAW installed. i am wondering what is the absolute best Audio interface and midi keyboard to use with the mac environment considering i have between 1000.00 and 1500.00 to spend? Any advice from seasoned professionals is much appreciated..... KD in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada

  • If you're using Logic, then you could try an Apogee Audio Interface, and for the keyborad, you don't have to spend THAT much money i think. Try CME UF line (the UF 88 is pretty nice). They great thing about CME controllers is that they offer a "breath controller" input, very useful for VSL orchestrations (i'm going to buy a CME UF 60 next week i think)

    I'd steer clear of CME if I were you - the after-sales support is just awful. While it's true that they're good value for money remember you get what you pay for!

    I own a UF8 and if, at the time I'd bought it, I knew what I know now I'd have gone for a Fatar. My advice would be to head to your nearest retailer for these things and try a few out to see if you like the feel of them.
