Be carefull when you fly back home. The custom guys take that very seriously now. At least everybody from the euro-zone should be carefull. 3 of my friends had to tax the guitars, laptops and other stuff they bought in the USA at the custom controll . It gets really expensive because of the penatly you have to pay in addition to the tax.

I would also say get addictive drums, EZDrummer is great but you only get a very basic kit and you have to buy ad-on packs to get more versatile sets. Everyone I know thought that the basic set will do, but then they all got that craving for more and they ended up shelling out more money.

I have planned to only buy stuff that I can fit into a bag so I hope it won't be noticed tongue.gif
How do they find out if it's bought in USA or not, and do you think there will be space for an Mbox Pro, a laptop and some Virtual instrument-packs or whatever I should call it in a backpack?

Ok, I am very sure that I'll go for Addictive Drums now smile.gif

@ Gerardo
I thought it would be smart to buy it as there were quite alot of plugins following with the Mbox pro.

Do you think it would be smart to have all the instrument samples loaded on one portable harddisk or could that cause trouble somehow?

If I should happen to choose EZDrummer, what expansions would you recommend then?

two suggestions:

imo an important difference between the macbook and the macbook pro is the screen size.
with a macbook pro there's just more room, and in my experience thats important. With a small screen you just keep scrolling...

And for the Axiom; why don't you consider the Yamaha KX series? They have great bundeld software. You get Cubase AI with it, which has lots of possibilities, a decent amount of samples and a great analog synth VST.

I don't think I'll need 2 mixing programs as I will get Pro Tools with the Mbox anyways, but if you know of other MIDI-controllers that have Plugins or other stuff bundled with them, please tell smile.gif

By the way I've heard something about a bass sound library called Yellow Tools Majestic. What would you say of it compared to Trilogy?

Majestic is a sampler/rom type bass and is actually very good but I would say Trilogy is a bit more flexible and easier to work with. I think you'd find putting bass lines together easier and faster with Trilogy. Where Majestic might win out over Trilogy though is if you buy it as a multi-pack bundled with Candy - YellowTools' really good sax rompler - and then are able to get a good discount. (YellowTools make some other romplers which are also good but to me Candy is the best of them.)

Cheers,
Tony

I looked a little closer at the Yellowtools-products, but I could only find a bundle with the percussion, sax and bass in one. One thing I noticed while looking through it was that I needed an authorization key for the software to work.
If I buy this, does it have to be licensed with that particular key, or can I use an iLok? I think it would be pretty hard to keep track on all these keys if I had to get one for each new library I got.
