        ***I'm a newcomer...i decided i'd like to give this a go. I'm in 
market for a computer. I'm going mac. I'm taking an audio digital class at
the New School, and the teach is helping people decide what they need to
get. I've been told to get a duel proc mac, about 533 mhz. Now...about the
program... what to get , what to get...we haven't looked at the programs
yet. They mentioned Acid (not avail for mac) calkwalk, qbase, fraser,
protool...yadda yaddaa... Have you any suggestions?  I want to do loops,
love drum n bass... I'd like to combine that, with a spice added, flavored
with Fripp, Apex Twin, Reich, M. Monk, We, ambient / trancy / atmospheric
stuff..going into beats. Least that's what I'm thinking.   I just got 2
turntables, no microphone ;p (unless you count the piece of crap that I've
had bought from Shit-Shack) and a mixer...I hope to encorp that with the
mac. (side note: Got a Gemini mixer...someone told me that they are not
known for their quality. I tried it out, and found that channel 1 is bad. I
have to go back to Sam Ass and exchange it. Should I xchange it for some
other brand?)

        thanx o'bunch,
