I\'m very glad disk streaming solutions like EXS and Kontakt are popping up on the Mac. My question is how do they stack up performance wise to Giga? Midphase was telling me that he can run 6 instances of EXS with relatively large samples before things start to crackle. If I recall he\'s running a dual 1.5 G4. He\'s also running Logic on the same machine. In any case, that still seems a bit low. He mentinoned a raid config. or SCSI drives would improve performance, but Giga is doing the job well with IDE drives.
I\'d love to hear what guys out there are achieving on the MAC performance and inst. wise. I\'m wondering if there is something inherently limiting in the architecture of the MAC which makes disk streaming less effective.
Is anyone using a MAC for sample playback only, like may of us do with giga pc\'s - no sequencer. That would be an interesting benchmark.
