Anyway, I'm just happy about finally owning a Mac again, it's been three years which is way too long biggrin.gif
Can't wait to get it set up for music recording and getting rid of my PC eventually.
Also thinking about getting a Mac Mini next year and use it as a VST host, and beef up my studio a bit, but we'll see..

When I'm ready and everything's installed, I'll post a recording done on it and tell you how it was compared to recording on my PC. I believe there will be some stability differences tongue.gif

Oops, gotta go work a bit now, hehe..
