The Apogee card is used by Dre and most of the American Hip-hop community.
Am I really going to have to spell out why server workstations are superior in an environment where you're through-putting Gigabytes per second. Or where you have to use long real-time renders?
Most audio plugins and apps come out later for PC because Window's audio capabilities are much, much inferior. http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul0...ician_0707.htm
Nothing's improved since then.
As for the list, it's ridiculous for you to ask me to find mac only software on pc only software. Logic is second biggest DAW and is Mac only, along with Digital performer (which is arguably the biggest in America after Pro Tools).
Like it or not, Mac's dominate the creative field and for good reason.
Dre uses it....point?
Yes a server is great, BUT it is a server, and therefore only comparable to other servers, which still means it's hardware is pretty dire.
Interesting article, but so is this one:
"So, yes, Windows 7 is proving very good for music production and, if all your hardware now has compatible drivers, it certainly makes sense to go for it on a new PC."
Seems Windows 7 is a good route for music production, as XP was ****, Vista was eh, but 7 is finally where MS can make a good name for themselves. Can't see why you say "nothing has improved since then"....
So what is the good reason they dominate? They are slower & more expensive. Yeah, great reason to have a Mac.
Oh, how's 3DS Max doing for Macs?
Either way your argument is still pretty pointless as you are arguing for a Mac server, meaning the macbooks and iMacs are all redundant, killing this thread.
