Re: Blofeld vs XT?

Re: Do you hate when bands...

i didnt read through the whole thread, just your original post. i personally hate it when an electronic act i love adds guitars and live drums during live performances and changes the vibe.

Re: Leopard compatibility

Whenever I'm thinking about upgrading my machine I check the manufacturer's websites first to see if they've approved things to work before I pull the trigger. Have you checked out all the websites already? Also you'll get a better idea of individual problems by checking out each company's forum be...

I'm a little concerned about compatibility though as I went through h**l when i originally went from pc to intel based mac. I've researched as much as i could and it seems...

machinedrum question

just wondering, when racked, how many spaces does the machinedrum take up, including room for cables?

anyone actually rack one of these or do you all just use it tabletop?
