Lives for gear

For that price I think you would have to be pretty naive to purchase it. I guess it makes sense for computerphobic engineers, or for those who don't have the patience or discipline to configure a solid daw - but do have enough money to blow on a dumbed down overpriced rackmounted computer. Maybe the converters make it more worth it --- who knows.

Whoa, wait a minute - HOLD THE PHONES... Up to 8 plugins at the same time!!! Gee! Imagine all of the possibilities. Currently all I can run on my new pc before it crashes is 2 rennaisance verbs and one autopanner. *

It seems like it would be cool for live apps...except it's probably got some pretty serious latency depending on the plug.

I thought that thing was out a year ago. Not very interested personally.

yeah brilliant! not happy with **** plugs in your computer? Why not rack 'em? Why bother using valuble rack space for Lexi reverb, AMS delays and Orvilles when you can just rack up Karlette and Choirus.

Hang on....

be careful

Be careful here. I'm not sure if it's actually worth the $3.5 k. For a lot less you can get a rackmounted PC and an external AD/DAC, whilst having more processing power *and* the ability to upgrade the computer when needed. The buttons on the front can be replaced with about any MIDI controller, and you can connect to and control the machine using Windows's Remote Desktop or TightVNC (sorry for geekin' here, but especially Windows Remote Desktop is *very* easy to set up and use).

All they say on the website is "it has a Pentium-class processor", which is equivalent to saying "this car has an engine built after 1993". You know it's not ancient, but that's about it.

At least get it demo'd before purchasing.
