any body willing to help me out in san francisco?
the project is to set up a recording and sequencing
system for scratch (semi-pro-quality) recording.
i'm an out of work musician but none-the-less
willing to pay money.

problems include:
* determine the right computer to buy
for example: buy a tower or a laptop or both? if a
tower, what expansion cards to buy?
* determine what software to use
* determine i/o and other hardware
* how to drive a roland X10, other roland digital
what other external hardware to buy? drum machine?
other music instrument hardware? (i like having
instrument voices in external hardware so's not to
burden the CPU of the computer running recording or
sequencing software.)
* use existing pro-tools recordings on the new linux

PS: music store people i've talked to have no clue about
linux stuff.
i have read reviews and other online info and cannot find
what i need: specifics to put a small, basic system
together (what CPU speed, RAM, storage... to buy; is there
reasonably good quality recording or sound generation or
audio playback stuff in expansion card form that works
with linux; are there necessary drivers or libraries that
are not obvious to someone new to setting up these systems;
what are the solutions to problems that typically come
with the specific hardware and software components...?).
