so after much thought, i think i finally settled on a mac pro. Just wanted to ask a few more questions. 1) how does cubase 4 run on the mac pro? compared to g5 and a pc of the similar quality? 2) how does firepod work on mac pro (im planning on upgrading that eventually) 3) i also heard something about older vst plugins not working on intel macs? Thanks for all the help.
