    Is the MacPro really incredible?

    Would love to hear from some people who have upgraded to a new MacPro (esp. now with those 8 cores.... [drool...])

    I have heard that they can open up to 60 instantiations of virtual instruments in Logic and I am absolutely in love with the idea of getting rid of my Giga machine and working solely from one computer running EWQLSO Gold, the Vienna Instruments Standard edition, and a bunch of VIs that I already have (Stylus, Storm Drum, NI Komplete, etc.).

    Would love to hear about anyone's experience with a new MacPro....

    yeah very interesting.

    I'm waiting for the time when the Mac actually catches on fire from shear speed. That will be the Quad octocore with 16 gaggles per semicore.
