As per Oren's advice,I decided to stay away from Ableton Live lite-because even with their free upgrade,it's still not compatible with Reason's Rewire,so I scratched Ableton off my list.
I had taken into consideration of Oren's suggestion to use Audacity as my DAW for vocals,but I had done some poking around in my Audacity,& Audacity does not support MIDI,so I had to scratch Audacity off of my list as well.
I may have however,come up with the ideal solution for my  dream computer studio as a whole..........
...against Oren's advice,I have re-considered Pro Tools,because not only is Pro Tools 8 one of the cheapest DAWS out there ($249),it's also compatible with Reason's Rewire AND the new M-Audio Axiom Pro 49 controller!
The entire package will cost me around $1100...which is the same cost of my Korg M50....which I think is the bargain of the millenium! wOO
The best part is,is that I was reading a customer review on Pro Tools 8,& this person has the identical amount of computer power that I have,as well as using Reason & he said that his pc runs fine-without any strain on his CPU! Cool
I really feel that all my research has paid off well & my search has come to a pleasant end-once & for all. Cheesy

Thom,

That ProTools  software should work just fine for you.

Some of the pro-audio folks I deal with use hardware recording set-ups, and are unhappy with having to deal with so much ProTools based input. Odd file formats, coupled with portions of audio files missing entirely, being the most common complaints.
(Now, if the guys making those source files with ProTools were paying attention and checked their work before submitting it, information gaps on files would never be passed on. And, if the ProTools users were being considerate, they would pass on the music in a more universal file format like .WAV or .FLAC.)

One interesting benefit of learning ProTools is that it is very similar to Audour in Linux.  When you switch to an open-source operating system, you'll already have many of the skills necessary to work with Ardour, Rosegarden, JAMin, and Audacity - and all in a rock-solid, virus-free environment. wOO

Oren,

I honestly hope I never have to resort to switching to a open source system entirely(not that it's a bad idea),as I'm not a big tech head.....I'm just a humble musician that is serious about making music,& not so much about computer systems.
I'm just hoping to keep things relatively simple & functional,by choosing products that are advertised as being exclusively compatible with one another...& hopefully this will be enough to get me by,so I can just get right to making music.

I'm primarily a hobbyist & if my hobby progresses further than this,then this is good,but I'm not really staking my life on it...for reasons we discussed discreetly.
Thanks for giving me some backround  on the Pro Tools thing...always appreciate the input. Smiley

Thom - you're already quite the big tech head - you just don't realize it yet... Wink
As with all things in life, you learn what you need to get the job done. One step at a time, friend.
