so let me get this straight... you spent over $7500 on a computer and only $200 on an audio interface???
is it easy to see where you are walking with your head up your ass?

the post just above makes this seem even more ridiculous because that's only a $2000 computer at most and he gets the same performance on the test.

Thank you for making assumptions.

I will explain in simple terms so you can understand. My main computer was a newer model iMac. For what I do, the Saffire has worked out fine (but I do plan on upgrading soon). A few weeks ago I had an injury that will keep me from going to work for a couple of months. I am a graphic designer and also work with various 3D software. The place at work graciously bought me the Power Mac and allowed me to use it at home while I recover. I thought it would be nice to get my audio software running on that machine for obvious reasons. If that is an example of having my "head up my ass" then I am sorry. I would think any of us presented with the same opportunity would do the same.

Nope!!! And i wasn't aware that Power Macs were A) still being made and b) had dual 6-core processors in them. you should pick a name and stick with it. switching aliases may get confusing.

Let me explain (not that you deserve it).

1. I made a mistake. Mac pro. Been using macs since the //e and get them confused sometimes. Sorry.

2. I have two accounts. Won't go into the reason, but there is a reasonalbe one.

Take care.
so glad you recognize that I am indeed a first class human!
and yes, you nailed it on the head.. divorced mom's basement. do they even have basements in California??? wouldn't know, never seen one here.

what exactly is my writing style? break it down for me. do you mean style, as in I spell check words like "reasonalbe" so that I don't get caught with my pants down when the spelling police come around?
