Digidesign needs to jump on the 2001 boat and allow us PC users our due. A 1 Ghz processer (with lots of RAM) can do just about anything a TDM system can do. Why are they so against making a system like this, hell the software is what $4K street price, they would BE CONNECTING WITH A WHOLE LEVEL OF MARKET THAT THEY HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY TOUCHED YET. And Digidesign, dont think that the 001/LE is enough for us. There must be a middle road (001=$800, (fill in blank with mythical system), TDM=$9K minimum...is that a GAP or what?) I use Samplitude and I am able to get 40 tracks with 28 instances of 4 band Waves EQ. That must somewhat Rival a TDM system. I can upgrade for less than $600 to a 1.2 G processor w/ 512SDRAM...imagine what that would do for my system from 800/256!!! And remember, I want to be able to transfer back and forth between Mac and PC, PC and Mac, Timecode LINK!!!!
