    I am about to begin mixing my project in DP 4.5. I run OSX on a PowerMac G4 dual processors that rate at 867 mhz each. My memory currently stands at 768 MB

    Guesstimating I have about 32 tracks running simultaneously during playback. This does not include any plug-ins. I will be using a UAD-1 while mixing. Is it realistic to think that I'll be able to mix using plug-ins on all these tracks, real time, during playback?
    How much memory is enough?

    All feedback is appreciated.

    768 should be a good amount, but in memory more is always better. http://www.macsales.com has good prices on theirs or http://.

    The more the merrier. Its as simple as that.

    Although, 768 should do fine unless you batter your machine with plugs.
