Another excuse to get an intel machine...

I know im not alone in saying that the most terrible time waster is gaming. Macs however, are not exactly famous for their gaming capacity. What games do you guys dig, and does anyone game on an intel mac yet? I have a G4 with lots of ram, but it's still no good for serious games (ie quake 4) Maybe ...

the rokits are great... dont know how they do it for the money. I have the 5s, and they are sweet. Can listen to em all day and they dont colour the sound too much at all.
When i need more volume ill probly buy a bigger set of KRKs.

i think the best way to learn is to find a few people who are at around the same level as you in ability, and then start a band!
Playing covers and your own songs, even if you can hardly play guitar/keyboard/bass, is proberbly the best way to learn.

Hey, Im a bit of a midi virgin, allthough i have managed to get my bherringer midi switch working with live.... at first glance the axiom seemed way more simple.

I have a set of the rockit 5s, got em for 300 euros (for the pair). I find em very easy to listen to, they dont tire your ears out too quick like some. Theyre nice and detailed whilst remaining neutral, true the bottom end could be a problem if your mixing a lot of low frequencys at high volume, but...

Im a bit innocent... (but i need a midi controller)

hey, whats the best midi controller for around 300 or so euros for live? We are a live group and we need some kind of controller for triggering loops and then controlling different effects and filters over em in real time. Will any midi keyboard do the business? I only ask because i saw on the ablet...
