I usually need to work fast, so availability of existing sound libraries etc for each would be a consideration.
Also, I run Logic Audio with video on a G4, giga on two PCs. Any advice on whether it would be best, in terms of available resources, to run the synth as a VSTi on the mac, or a standalone on one of the PCs? Do these synths coexist nicely with giga or can it create problems?
