    can some explain to me how the TC power core operates?

    does this card take the load off your computer to process plugins?

    my goal is to take as much off my cpu as possible.....

    From my understanding is that it goes into your firewire slot and takes the load of the the CPU. Check this out http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PowerCoreFW/. I was looking into getting one of these but I was talked out of it and told just get a new mac g5 with a student discount and it would almost be the same price, and you would get more power. The nice thing with the PowerCore is you do get a bunch of plug ins also look into the UA DSP expansion. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/UAD1StudioPak/. This is a cheaper option and I have heard much better things about this then the powercore.

    powercore and uad is just their own plugins running on a seperate processor....

    so they're not expanding your processing power as you cannot run anything else on them.....

    they also induce latency.... i measured 512 samples on the uad.... not a problem when mixing with adc though...
