My PPC Dual 2.5 G5 is giving up the ghost it seems and I may have to buy a new Mac Pro. I am looking ar a 2.8 Quad w/8 gigs of RAM. (BTW, is $2100 a good price?) I use Logic. I will have to sell my 2 UAD-1's and get a UAD-2 and trash my firewire/USB PCIx card for a PCIe so it's a bit of a chore to do this switch.
So....I have a couple of questions. What do I do about Trilogy? I have used it in every song I have ever written/produced and I don't really have any other bass libraries-nor can I afford to buy 3 or 4 libraries to replace Trilogy.
I am a singer/songwriter and I am simply producing my own demos, however I use a lot of VI's and plug ins on my projects. (Pop/R&B - Pop/Rock) So, I need the bass sounds. Will the wrapper be okay for my purposes? I don't mind a little hassle to keep what I'm used to.
Next question. I was told that in a few months, the new Mac Pros will be smokin' compared to the one available now - due to the "i7 core" or something like that and the fact that they will be using much faster RAM, and other architecture changes. Should I tough it out for 2 or 3 months and get the newer ones, or is it not as big a deal as I was led to believe?
To make it easier for you to work on your old songs on your new intel mac i would recommend that you render the Trilogy tracks to audio and save the songs in that state as long as you still have the PPC mac.
