Essentials is nothing similar like Reason man. The main mixer is crippled. Way less devices, which you can't buy as RE. It's definately worth saving up the extra cash for the full monty

Fair enough, I thought that you could upgrade to essentials to 6.5? That was going to be my plan

Thanks for the help on this guys, opted for a Samsung 3 series as within budget and seems capable of my intended "hobbyist " use! Hoping for some advice on the soundcard now if you wouldn't mind? I plan on buying an external USB interface. Questions as follows:

1- If i brought something like a Presonus Audiobox USB or Alesis i02 USB, would they come with the ASIO driver or would I have to download from some where like ASIO4ALL for example

2 - Would the two products above be suitable?

Again, any help appreciated!

If it's any help, I have both and would definitely go for the PreSonus. Like all Alesis products I've used over the years, the io2 is rubbish (badly built, crap support). And last time I checked the PreSonus has its own drivers whereas I'm having to use Asio4All for my io2.

Thanks! For the difference in price I sort of thought this would be the answer.. Looking at the spec/ features on the Presonus website, it says "supports ASIO" but there is a driver download. Do you think either way (i.e. ASIO4all or via presonus) this would work? From what I am reading most Windows based drivers for this type of kit would be ASIO driver, am I getting this right?
