I have decided to make the switch from PC over to Mac. It's a little scary, but apparently my RME Multiface is Universal, and will work with a Mac. (I didn't know Macs had PCMCIA card slots, which will tell you how much I know about Macs.) I have an "ideal set up" in my head which I'd like to run by you folks for comments. So, hopefully, this thread will be less about Mac vs. PC and more about that.
I really like the capabilities of Logic Pro 7. I was able to use it a couple summers ago, and really, I didn't have many complaints. (One was the question of whether or not Logic has "score-view" capability for multiple tracks and whether it allows for mouse note-input)... Anyhow...
I also really enjoy GS3 and I have a decent "basic" set of samples to use. (SAM Brass, Opus 1, and I'll be adding SSIS Strings soon if they can get back to me.) Currently, I have a laptop DAW and one desktop on which I run GS3.
My 'master plan', thus far, is to go with a Macbook Pro equipped with Logic 7 Pro. Along with that, I had planned to use GVI inside of logic. It seems like I could run more streamlined on one computer this way. Does anyone do this? What performance are you able to get out of it if you do.
Also, does anyone use GVI along with GS3 on another computer? I'm trying to understand what I'd have performance-wise. Is this a smart solution?
Thanks very much for your consideration and advice!
