RE: the good old Mac/PC question (was: looping observation)
That sounds like a great idea. I've been using/programming Windows for
years. For audio I've used Win2K and now WinXP and very satisfied. The OS
has come a long way from the Win9x days. WinXP is really WinNT++. I get
really low latency.
Here's some very trivial geek trivia. :) Three or four years ago some guys
in the keyboard dept of Bill's Music here in MD laughed when I said I was
using a PC with (then) Cakewalk 9 (now SONOR 3.x). They were doing their
Beavis and Butthead "Hehehehe, yea... hehehe, like, 40ms latency...
hehehe... that sucks." I said, "Nope. 2.5-4.5ms." That was using a
Beach Multisound Pinnacle... with its kick-ass Kurzweil VAST synth engine
... yea baby!! Deep stuff. I was running a 500MHz Athlon, 256MB RAM,
Win2K, Multisound Pinnacle card (AT card, but had what they called
"Hurricane" architecture for audio acceleration). I still only use Athlon
CPUs in my PCs.
Next desktop for me will be G5 whenever I get around to it (not soon).
notebook is either TabletPC or a G4, prolly G4.
