    Hey Chris,
    I've been using Digi 001 for several months and it's been very stable but the 24 track restriction has me looking into other options. I have a G4 500 and I don't want to buy a new computer right now. I noticed in one of your post that you run DP on a G4 400 and that you have been getting 40 + track performance from that system. Is that Audio or a combination of audio and MIDI tracks? Those extra tracks would be great but how stable is your system? With 40 tracks approximately how often do you have a freeze or crash? Can you run a few Waves or Bomb Factory plug ins and still get 40+ tracks? Do you use DP3 or an earlier version? I would also welcome info from any one else out there with a similar system.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Yes... a g4 single processor but 40 is the tops..
    no 40 + if you intend to use plugs and not have a snail on yer hands

    Is that Audio or a combination of audio and MIDI tracks?

    Audio..and a bit of Midi

    Those extra tracks would be great but how stable is your system?

    Very

    With 40 tracks approximately how often do you have a freeze or crash?

    It "freezes" when I try to load a waves plug with processor over 60%..every time. Other than that pretty crash free (keep in mind I'm not useing the latest stuff)

    Can you run a few Waves or Bomb Factory plug ins and still get 40+ tracks?

    I use Waves and Channel strip..about 15 plugs before i bury it. I demoed the bomb stuff..24 tracks 15 plugs 24 bit at 44.1 to hit 90% on the Cpu

    Do you use DP3 or an earlier version?

    3.0..I'm expecting to go to 3.01 as soon as I get a couple of albums out the door..
