    You could get bootcamp free or Parallels for $$. These programs allow you to dual boot XP on a seperate partition on your mac. You also have to obtain a legal copy of XP and install it on the MAC.

    Then install what ever PC software you used before. I am not sure how you transfer the audio files between Mac and PC. I'm sure if it is WAV, Mp3, or Aif files it can be read by both OS's

    Take a look at your install CDs, most 3rd party plugs have installs for both platforms.

    Also check with the companies that you have the Universal Binary version that will work on the new macintels or the older PowerPC cpus.

    Yup correct.
    But yeah, check your install cd's, they should have the mac install for them too!
