Re: Question about looping software

My pal Keith has a Mac Mini he uses for music and I
know he's getting Kantor and Cube 2 running
comfortably on it and it's a couple years old now.

I think the rule of thumb on any computer you buy is
that it's good for one upgrade cycle for apps.  At
that point freeze it as it is and forget about the
world outside and just use it.  Many of my recordings
were done on a Mac 7500 with a cheap Korg audio card. 
I doubt it would tackle soft synths, though.
