I’ve been recording this new CD on my lovely little iBook G4 laptop, but the little thing just doesn’t seem up to the job. Logic Pro 7 (the sequencer I’m currently using) really needs a faster processor, especially when you’ve got 15+ tracks of audio, plus the processing ‘plug ins’ all shouting “Me! Me!” It really struggles.
Now that the new Logic Studio has just been released it really has pushed my laptop out of contention. So I’ve finally bitten the bullet and invested in a shiny iMac G5 Intel and the Logic Studio upgrade. To be honest I’ve been a bit silly holding back from this as music and recording is what I do. I’m looking forward to the delivery of my new baby tomorrow afternoon, and then away ye devils of technology and back to playing music….
