I am a classical musician and I have been using a Sony Minidisc recorder to record audition tapes, concerts, etc. Due to the fact that my MD recorder got broken in my gig bag a little while ago and I am about to trade in my Ti 550 for a new Al PB 1.5, I am looking at the possibilities of recording straight to my computer and burning CD's from there. I've got a Sony digital mic that I would plug into the audio in port on the PB (the 550 doesn't have one). My question is, what, in your opinion, is the best software for recording the audio, basic editing, and outputting into various formats (AIFF, MP3, etc.)? Thanks. By the way, I just joined today! It's great to be a part of the Mac Rumors community.
