yes. I've got an ibook 700 mhz and 700 mb of ram. It works great, 24 tracks, lots of plugs. runs better than my studio PC (P III)

I love my setup!

I'm using a 600mhz iBook with 256 ram...
I only get 15 mins of 2 track recording before I get the wonderful "disk too slow or fragmented message". I have partitioned my drive and only have one session at a time on the audio partition. I can get a bunch of tracks going no problem for lower times but I can't bounce to disk.
Anyone's help here would be appreciated.
Yes I've done the base set + oms + digi extensions.. and mem cache etc..

Hey Hazy.... How's the new government? I believe it goes against your chances of joining the EU. It seems to that a lot of Europeans are a little afraid to go to Turkey now with a fundamentalist government. Hopefully it works out well for everyone....

iBook G3 500 Mhz; 192 MB RAM

24 tracks... Plays and bounces to disk without any problems.

The last time I really pushed it hard was a 9 minutes song; 22 tracks; 1 reverb; 5 other plug-ins (comp, eq etc) and EXTENSIVE automation. Played and bounced to disk without any problems. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

I am sure kingfly is getting a far better performance than me with iBook 700 MHz and 700 MB RAM.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Digidesign is against partitioning. I use the internal drive without any partitions; just make sure you defrag / optimize the disk with an app like Norton.

With Norton, defrag and optimizing are two different things. "Largest unused amount of disk space" is very important when recording in ProTools. Defrag cannot do this. With optimizing you gather all the data together thus increasing the largest unused amount of disk space.

Norton refused to work on the disk because it was the system disk!

do you keep your sessions on the drive or back the up and the delete them off the drive?
