Re: iMac vs Mac Pro -- Need some advice on an invesment

I took the plunge on a 6core mac pro not too long ago...highly recommended. it was a big investment, but I can already tell that I'll be thoroughly satisfied for a long time.

Re: 4 things I need help with in Live.

i'm in the market for a new computer and am looking at the new 6 core mac pro. I don't usually use more than 15 tracks in a song,but I do like a lot of CPU heavy plugs, ie Diva, soundtoys and fabfilter plugins, etc. would be nice to run things at a low buffer without the clicks and pops I currently ...
