Default Thanks Guys

A thankyou to all the guys who gave me a the whole heartedly "get a Mac if you want to do any Pro Audio".

I have been a PC man for 15yrs and a Mac man for 1 day.

I now have my Mix+ on a Mac and yes guys I am impressed. The Mac was so simple to setup (mind took me a while to find how to open the CD/DVR).

I am a s pleased as punch and glad I made the investment.

Cheers all.

Karl

Karl,

I know the feeling, I have always been a PC guy.... The Mac was so easy to use that I found myself going "Oh, that's all I do?"

Well...I still use my PC for playing MP3s, surfing the Web and printing Neato labels. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Any serious audio goes through my Mac.

In fact, this post is coming from a PC. Isn't it gre31(*7 AAAeat?

If we really want to work with a format that is popular then we should be focused on how to get mixes to sound great on compressed audio like mp3s. While we all talk about depth and detail (which is quickly squashed by an L2 or MasterX into non-dynamic mud). John Q Public is out their listening to mp3s through $10 headphones.

Yep I want an mp3 based PT with 300MSPS and 64 bit converters and quieter clocks so I can still hear the "You've got Mail" message in the background.

I think we need to all take a reality check and admit that any spec concerning bits and sampling rate is solely for marketing and not audio purposes (or so we can have the fastest hot rod on the block).

i'd rather se digi focus on supporting firewire asnd higher quality plugs
