Vedr. Re: Mac v.s Pc
Thanks for your answer. I have seen that MOTU 828 has done greate on tests in Norwegian magazines.
If I was to go for a powerful laptop, are the intel Macs the latest, and best thing ?
Since I am used to my pc-labtops build in sound, will there be a a big difference if a buy interface and mac ?

I've been consistantly happy with it. It's stable for
the most part (don't try and close a project without
saving!) and quick to work in once you know it's
ins-and outs. The
time from purchase to recording was
very quick and I've never spend an evening
troubleshooting some odd program. It just seems to
Is it better than a PC? Hard to say as I've yet to
try using a XP box for music (but it's on it's way...)
I work with PCs and Macs doing Graphic design and I'm
still of the mind that the Mac OS is just better
designed. Perhaps it's just that I know it better,
but I often feel like things that are easy on a mac
are often complicated troubleshooting fests on XP
systems. I remember spending hours trying to get a
midi interface to work using a girlfriends Win98
laptop and it never ended up happening. Luckily XP
seems to have come a long way toward their promise of
"Plug n' Play."
I think at this point it comes down to "what software
do I want to use?" If the answer is "Logic" or
"Digital Performer" than the answer is a Mac. If it's
FL Studio 6 than you're on the
way to a Win-tel box.
Recently I ordered a Win-tel laptop because of 2
reasons. Reason number one was I was able to save a
little cash. Reason number two was I'm interested in
playing around with Mobius and it's PC only. The
other app I'm interested in is Reaktor and they're
months away from a Mac-tel compatable version and it
seemed silly to have to sink money into a second OS
for a Macbook. They're cute and nicely priced, but
I'd rather have a bigger screen and video card.
Who knows, in a month I may be cursing the day I
ordered it. My guess is that with my tinkering nature
I'll probably get it working. Per's inspired me to
give it a try anyway.
