I have decided it is time to move on to newer things
« on: June 22, 2017, 11:51:16 PM »
I really love my OS9 Rig But have been increasingly missing out on opportunities because I have been tethered to, two hundred plus pounds of hardware. Along with the problem of there being no simple way to share projects back and forth with others working on newer systems. 

So I went out and bought a mid 2014 MBP 2.8 ghz quad core with 16 gigs of ram, with internal and external SSD Drives. A thunderbolt UAD II Apollo 8 and a TB UAD II OCTO Satellite along with a pile of plugins to go with it and put all of that into a Gator porta studio rack bag that I modified a bit. And I have to say I could not be happier with it.

So now I am looking at my trusty old 5.1.3 G4 quick silver with dual 1080p monitor setup along with the loaded 7 slot Magma chassis, piles of Digi interface cables, Digi interfaces, Opcode Studio 4 interface etc.. that is now adorning my closet, wondering what the heck I am going to do with all that now.  :-\

Gotta do whatcha gotta do! ;D Glad your new system is working out... as fun as the old stuff can be, if you need to interchange your projects with newer systems there are those hoops you have to jump through!  ;D ;D

Curious if you've used any plugs that work on the older farm cards that won't work on the "Mix" version? I have a few things that don't work on Mix farm that might work with an older card that I've been curious about. Thought about picking up a pre 'mix' version to see if they'd work.

I have never had any trouble running any plugs on any of the cards in this system. I do know that only certain older DSP cards work and some don't, I do not remember the specific model numbers but these are the specific cards that do work.
