Performance tweaks.....
I just got an Mbox and although it has been very reliable, I am getting a couple less plug-ins that I did whith PT Free. So, first of all, is there any simple upgrades that I can make to my system to help that? And also, does anyone know how much horsepower I would need in a new Mac to get about a dozen RTAS plugins at the same time? Right now I am using an iMac 400 w/ 320 MB RAM and the stock internal drive.
The disk seems to be fine up to ten tracks (all I have put it through so far) But will I get anymore plugins by upping the ram or the drive? Or is that completly CPU related?

Re: Performance tweaks.....
Some more RAM and running the audio off an external FW drive will help, but maybe only a little. Really what you need is more CPU horsepower. To get a dozen "normal" plugins (not all reverbs), maybe like a 500 or 600 ? I'm not too sure on that. Maybe someone else can help out.

Yes, I am thinking that I need to just upgrade to a fater machine. Maybe and eMac. I think that should handle what I need.
