    Pentium processor and third hard drive

    How much polyphony can you get with a Pentium 700 MHz processor?

    I\'m thinking of getting a third hard drive just for recording audio. I already have a Quantum Ultra ATA66 18GB hard drive for Giga stuff. Should I get another drive with the same specs as the Quantum?

    I have a friend running a 600 MHz with scsi drives, Running Cakewalk with 6 or 8 tracks of audio, GigaStudio was good for only 12 notes of polyphony. Hope that helps.

    12 notes? Holy crap...was he using alot of effects?
    I get 72 max on a PII 350, without any audio from Cubase

    With audio, I get about 5-6 tracks, and 50 notes without effects.

    I\'m running Gigastudio 96 on a 600 MHz Pentium 3, 128 megs ram, 2 drives (8 gig for programs and 30 gig for audio), Cakewalk Pro Audio 9, and a Delta 1010 soundcard and am getting about 90 voices of polyphony. Plus, that\'s also with using 2 NFX reverbs on diffferent aux busses.
