To The PowerBook users (and also WAVES users)
i know a lot people have them.... and obviously they do the intense work with powermac DUAL and so.... but i want to spend in a new PB 12" 1.5Ghz.... and i know they do easy the 32 track (without plugs) with internal drive... and i'm not trying to ask the DAVEC of them (it would be usefull but not that much).... the question is for the WAVES v5.0 users:

when doing some light limiting or maximazing with C4 + L3 (on a single stereo bounced track)... how much of procesor is working in this task???

PS:is enough 512MB for only audio (no REASON andother midi APPS) for this PB with the PTLE???

No you should be fine with playback of 32 tracks AND with putting limiters and compressors on your 2 track master stereo bus.

The problem might be in RECORDING/Tracking to your internal harddrive more than about 4-6... ur internal is slow as balls and u will get errors out the [bleep].

512mb of ram is enough for what you're doing. To be honest, you will be fine with a good amount of low processor plug-ins.... REVERB is one you have to watch out for, that drains ur comp and also some of those crazy super tap delays and what not. Reason rewire can drain alot out too. And RTAS plug in instruments, etc. etc.

I would look into getting another stick of 512, its cheap and worth it. besides that you should be good.

If you want to track/record 32 tracks, I would get an external... Lacie D2 250gb maybe. 7200... strong STRONG HD.

Hope that helps a bit, im no expert on here, just going with what i've learned thru the years.
