I am looking to get a studio setup to replace what I have now. I am basically looking to get a new computer and interface and start a production studio. I will be doing a good amount of live recording as well as using virtual instruments. My track count can get up to about 60-70 tracks, but never track with plugins activated, except for an occasional reverb on a vocal.
I've been battling between the Universal Audio Apollo, Apogee Quartet, and some RME stuff, but am totally unsure as to what route to go.
I am going to be using Pro Tools 9 on a brand new computer. Besides the interface, any reccomendations on a computer? Do you thikn getting a new iMac and mazing out the RAM will be sufficient or should i go with a mac pro? I want to avoid latency and crashing as much as possible!!
