just bought a md for my trip and got 2 bits of software.
ones that sonic stage thing your on about. when you open it it looks like it would make coffee if you only knew how to make the fucking thing work.
. the second bit is called the md simple burner and as the name suggests its a piece of piss to work.
as long as your not a complete muso head that wants to fade in and out of a tune whilst drinking a nice cup of coffee it should sort you out
