I've been trying to figure out what PC (Mac or Intel) to get. Initially I will be recording - a cappella - 1 to 3 tracks at a time - will easily get up to 24 tracks so I would like like the capacity to have at least 48 - not sure how many plug-ins I will want on each track (due to my inexperience with all of this) - am considering using external reverbs. I just saw the new Apple product announcements and am trying to figure out what G4 would meet my needs. One page at the Apple web site talked about how the 800mhz was faster than a 2ghz Intel running Adobe Photoshop. But that doesn't tell me how well it handles audio. Can you Mac folks tell me 1: what configurations you have (mhz, memory, disk (ide vs scsi)) 2: how many tracks you record at one time 3: how many you mix 4: how many plug-ins, on the average, for each track 5: do you use external reverbs, etc, and how do you like it vs plug-ins.
