I have a situation and I\'m curious if any other mac users have solved it..... in a word OSX. I\'ve been putzing along now for quite some time with my current G4, which is OLD. 3 years to be exact. It\'s only got a 400 processor! And it\'s only got 1 at that! It works great for some things, but now that technology is getting very cool, we have all sorts of new software synths etc... and my machine just can\'t keep up. So I\'d like to upgrade, but my software can\'t keep up with the new machines because it\'s not OSX yet! And I can\'t get a new machine because it won\'t boot into OS 9! Errrrr... And apple, of all people it seems should know this would be a problem since they went and bought our favorite software manufacturer Emagic, who only has 1 of their entire software lines updated to work with OS X.
I kept holding off buying a new machine because I thought the G5\'s, or whatever the next generation is, would come out. Well now they go and make all machines OSX only (or 9 in classic) which really makes my life rough.
So my question is 2 fold: 1) Does anybody have any information as to when the new macs are in fact coming out. I may not be able to use my software, but at least I\'ll have a cool machine!
and 2) Does anybody know of a good fairly inexpensive way to update my current G4 so it can handle more plugs and do better processing and maybe get me along until all my beloved software HAS caught up with Apple?
Any insight would be great!
