I need some help!!
I just sold commercial sutio gear, Yamaha O2R V2.0 and MAC G4 dual 800, OS
9.2 running Logic 6.0 Platinum with with RME hammerfall 9652 ligtpipe
interface, etc. I am going to concentrate stictly on writing and film score
work, and find myself in a "what do I use" dilema. I never had a problem
with MAC G4 OS 9.2 and Logic 6.0 Platinum. In fact, I love all the plug-ins
and virtual instruments VST makes available for this set up. Therefore I am
seriously considering a Yamaha O1V96, ADAT light pipe in and out and a MAC
Dual 1.42 with Logic 6.0 and the new RME Hammerfall 9652 cards. However a
friend said I need to go the G5 dual 2.0 with OS 10.3 and Logic 6 Platinum.
I have serious concerns about the Audio Unit format and 3rd party plug-in
development support, and what about all the great VST plug-ins and
instruments that I have, i.e. Antares auto tune 3.0, Antares mic-modler,
Logic EXC24 mkII, etc. etc. I understand you cannot run VST on the new G5
with Logic. PS: I also have two Emagic Unitor 8 mkIIs that I love and want
to use. I honestly would appreciate some seasoned advice.  What do you
think, G4 or G5?
