I think with a Pentium 166 you're gonna struggle to do any kind of software based production. About all you could do is run Cubase as a midi sequencer to external gear. But if you're just starting out i seriousley wouldnt reccomend doing that yet.
I dunno if Reason will run on such a machine, im guessing no, but check the minimum system requirements on the propellerheads website. If it does run, it'll be slow as hell
The best sample editing software.... i opt for Wavelab personally, but lots of people like Soundforge aswell. Those two, and Cool Edit, are the best ones :thumbsup:
cheers for the info dudes. So what is the minimum spec for Cubase SX, Reason and the like? Am seriously thinking about getting the bits together and building a beast or buying the components and getting someone else to do it.
