Greetings All
Hope this doesnt come thru twice - computer crashed (like whats new)
I'm trying to learn about the new(?) software instruments.
Todays silly question is do you need a full blown high powered laptop to run the software, or will one of those little netbook thingies work? Or something in between ??

Thanks

Pete

your post is not clear, but I think you are asking about software MIDI instruments ?

if that is the case I think the best option is Reason 4 or 5, and I don't think it runs on a netbook, I guess having Reason+Ableton or protools in a netbook is not possible

I guess you can use VSTi instruments in a netbook but the sound will not be that good.

Finally: my recommendation is that you visit http://www.kvraudio.com/
