iMac vs Mac Pro for music production - pros/cons, overkill??

I'm just about to update my computer recording setup to a new Mac and new software - probably Logic, Reason and a few choice plug-ins/soft synths.

Although it has limitations and is very behind the times, this setup is quite stable and does what I need. I can record via the Mac's audio input without problem. However sometim...

Any CellSynth users?? OS 9.x devotees??

I fired off an email regrading registering my copy but never received a reply... Any opinions, tips, tricks etc for it would be cool too. Also, are t...
