    It goes is cycles, Kurt.
    1. DSP cards, then a new CP, then bug upgrades, then a new version.
    2. Then a new improved DSP card plus, new software , then bug patches.
    3. Then, new improved IO with double the processing DSP but its soon to be replaced with ...
    What is it that we keep doing it for? Something about the stock DAW EQ's or compression isn't as good as it was last year.

    Speed is nice to have though.

    analog had developed in to a steady state technology by the 80's. the only improvements were in N/R, transport and self alignment.

    the fact that digital is still evolving only shows it hasn't reached it's full potential. i just love paying out the nose to be a beta tester.

    My girlfriend got me a quad core Athlon/HP PC this past winter, and it does what I need it to do.

    I'm using Sonar (learning Samplitude but last week it crashed on me and I can't open the program, but that's for a different thread) and I have a virtually unlimited amount of tracks at my disposal that allows me more processing per track than I'd ever really use anyway...

    With the exception of eventually getting into a hybrid rig, I've come to a point where I feel as though that if I can't write, perform and record good stuff with what I have now? Then no upgrade is going to allow me to do it any better. It's not the computer's fault if I write and record a song that blows. ;)

    And - the only thing a faster processor is going to do for me, is to allow me to record garbage in a little less amount of time. LOL
