Up until very recently, I had been using an old imac with Pro Tools LE 6.1 with a Digi002 Rack.  An archaic set up, i know, but whatever.

Today, I bought a new imac for recording, and I am wondering what the best, most cost-efficent way of upgrading my set up would be. I own 2 mixing boards, both very high-quality, but quite old by today's standards. In terms of software, I am not that picky,

I would like to have something fairly intuitive that doesn't take forever to figure out. To be quite honest I haven't even mastered all of 6.1, although i was fairly proficient. I usually run only 2-4 mics at once, but ideally i would like a set up that has as many, if not more, inputs as my rack. I still have all my serial codes and such.

Does anyone know what the best way to upgrade would be? Would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you!!

    The cheapest way to upgrade to PT 8 would be to purchase a MBox Micro.  Its only $279.00 and you get the new software.  It is the cheapest way to obtain the new software. 

    ProTools 9 is now available, but they have discontinued the Micro so the cheapest way to obtain the software is to buy the MBox which comes with it. $899.

    Yikes, Digidesign and Avid have done it again. Eek.
