    A demo testing Spectrasonics on Dual 2ghz G5

    Hey everyone -

    With all the talk of new demos, I decided to take a crack at a Trilogy/Stylus/Atmosphere demo on my new Dual 2ghz G5 and see how they perform.

    The track is titled \"Use Your Alias\".

    It was interesting to note that I had 15 instances of the various plug-ins running (logic, OSX, 6.3.1, 2GB of ram) , and processor 1 was around 30% utilization, with processor 2 at about 15-20%!

    haha that\'s true! Although I don\'t watch the show much. But it appears to fit it pretty good [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Eric,

    thanks for sharing your G5 experiences!

    What\'s your perception regarding audible noise from its many fans and HD\'s?

    Cheers, Robert

    Does this mean the OSX drivers are working now?

    The fans and HD\'s are incredibly quiet. They trounce my old dual 450 g4, and my current Giga PC.

    As far as the drivers - which ones are you referring to? The Spectrasonics plugins work fine (although load times could be improved a bit).

    Nice work, Eric - very evocative.

    As far as Spectrasonics + G5, I love the combination! I have found that load times on my dual are 3 to 4 times faster. Stylus patches load instantaneously.

    The real problem is with AU plugins loading. I don\'t think it\'s a spectrasonics problem. All my AU plugs on OSX take FOREVER to open. I\'ve switched back to OS 9 until I get a G5 - no need to waste time loading plugs. All that to say, I think it\'s an Apple problem. Hopefully Panther will address this.
