After some good but affordable options for running BFD2 live on stage with a v-drum lap top and external audio/midi interface.
I bought my DAW from scanuk who I was a bit weary of at first but I have say they have built me a higher spec machine that some of their rivals for less money that has been great so far and I'm currently looking at this laptop
http://3xs.scan.co.uk/ConfigureSystem.asp?SystemID=1287 from them.
So apart from this I would need an external drive for BFD2 and a audio/midi interface + V-drums.
I have access to a free electronic kit which is great. It's Yamaha DTX but don't know what model or how old it is just yet but probably one of the "lower range ones" I know it has the little triangular cymbals.
So does anyone have a cheap and reliable recommendation for an audio/midi interface? I already have an emu 0404 in my DAW which is great and was looking at the usb version as a possible candidate (http://www.creative.com/emu/products/product.aspx?category=610&pid=18388) anyone know of a reason not to buy this?
Also have I missed anything out?
Should probably have posted this in the v-drummers forum
