I want to import .wav files from a Tascam 2488 into my computer to master on a Mac laptop. I won't be recording, just preparing my tracks for automated mixing. I would also like to use plug-ins to use effects, EQ and compression if needed to get the sound right. Is this basically what sequencing software does? What are some software applications that do this basic job. I know some programs lean more toward midi and synths, etc.. I only need it for automated mixing. Also, would an interface or D/A converter be needed to hear my mixes through my monitors and then to go stereo out to record on my CD burner?
