My girlfriend is moving to India within the next year or two to do research, and I am going along to study indian percussion and music. I want to bring along my studio setup, but need to change from desktop to laptop (I currently have a G4 dual 1gHZ mac with Digital Performer 4.6 and a PC desktop running GigaSampler)
I was thinking about selling my PC and buy a PC Laptop to continue using GS, but wondered if maybe I will switch to GPO (using it with DP 4.6 on my Powerbook). I will probably buy a MacBookPro soon. Is it sufficient to use only the MacBookPro, or will I experience hick-ups and crashes? I will have both GPO, additional Virtual instruments and recorded audio all running at the same time.
The soundcard will probably be a MOTU Traveler
Probably the best thing is to use a separate PC, but I like to travel as light as possible.
Another thought I had was buying a MacBookPro and keep my current Powerbook (1.33 GHz/ 1.5 GB ram) as a sampler/VI host.
