    Hello everyone, I have a question? I'm looking into a blue G3 450 or G4 450 both have 128ram, 30 or 40 gig hard dive, and both are single processors. I would like to know how many tracks can I get if I got one of these units. My goal is at least 32 tracks of hard disc recording that's withoutplug-ins BTW what's is the difference between a G3 450 and G4 450 processor, is it just model classification.Thanks

    I'm not a mac guru but I definitely would go for the G4. OS X supports G4 only. Many other issues as well coming.

    With Pro Tools the G3 is fine and isn't an issue but that's only today. Plan ahead.
    G4 for sure.

    As far as track count goes, what system are you using?

    Right now I've been recording on a G4 dual 500 but and the guy that has it was told he could get 48 to 60 tracks. But I don't know exactly what spec's I would need to achieve 32 tracks or more unless I get what he has.
