Default Digigram VX Pocket card and Powerbook G3. Is it worth it?

I recently bought a Powerbook G3 and a Digigram VX Pocket card with the intention of having a studio to take on the road. I have not bought any software as yet but I am planing on using Cubase 4.0 as this is one of the softwares listed as compatible with the VX Pocket card. As anyone tried it with Cubase 4.0 If you have please let me know how it works. Valentineval@juno.com
The site for all softwares compatible with the VX Pocket can be found at this link. http://www.digigram.com/support/faq/vx_compatib.html

I got it, and I'm running it with Logic Audio 4.2.2 and it works kool when I'm on the road doing lighter jobs, recording reference sound or editing to picture. You need to run a fast external drive in order for it to run smoothly and 24 channels spitting out sound. Never had to run that many channels. Got my, MPC and little modules running along side. I use Protools for mixing down bigger projects but I have done some really nice things with the powerbook setup. The internal drive chokes when you run to many channels, though. If you got the latest Powerbook with built in firewire I recommend LaCie or Formac's pocketdrives up to 18Gb, haven't tried VST's one but I guess their pretty much the same. I've bout alot of new vst plugins, synths and drummachines though, really nice. I on flights doing music. I'd like like for my whole studio to into my little laptop backpack and kiss all my other gear goodbye.

Logic Audio kicks Cubase out the box by far, my oppinion! They're coming out with a plugin sampler that seems to be superphat.

Just wish I could find a CD-burner to mount in the DVD/ZIP slot!

Gook Luck.

Hi Gordon

I've also been looking for a CD Burner for my Pismo. MCE Powerbook Products are selling expansion bay CD-RW Drives.

I'd be interested to know if anyone has any comments on this.

Didn't say prismo on the spec's.
Will it work with a Prismo, with audio , with toast or Jam or masterlist CD?
Sounds cool if it would....

Toast only

Yes, only if you use the Magma adapter in the expansion bay slot. I though
Magma had changed the case to run through the PCMCIA slot.
