I expect there will be many excited users saying "Wow, this is insanely fast and quiet, and I have 3 separate 4k displays connected via HDMI and they all look amazing…" that sort of thing.

LOL  ;D Very likely!

The people who will be disappointed -- those we discussed earlier, who need lots of internal expansion capabilities -- already know they will be disappointed based on the specs announced. They probably won't be surprised, positively or negatively.

I´m not sure about that…as we see in the video (and also other places) there are quite a lot of complains about it even before available….usually this happened very seldom with new stuff by Apple! I assume (pro) customers in this time are more aware and having good comparison options (especially to the previous model).

Was curious and checked the German refurbished shop some minutes ago…same here - nothing at all and i do remember very well at last 5-10 Mac Pro´s on stock when i looked for the Macbook i mentioned earlier…that´s really surprising and probably for the reason you mentioned.

Had also a look on Ebay and (at last here) there are some few sellers still having the previous model. Really curious if Apple is making business with the new model! Maybe they do the same U-turn like Microsoft did with XP  ;D

Thanks Guys for all the comments!

I´ve finally decided to wait too…anyway i´m fine with Mountain Lion so far.

Agreed!

Another option: You may find one of the latest previous Mac Pro which can add a lot of RAM too - but probably (like for all 2nd Hand Macs) you will have to pay still a steep price.

Mike, don´t forget that people usually eat what they get served in the Apple universe and mainly applaud in chorus….at the end i can see in anything something positive even it´s a step backwards.

Example: I was replacing my Macbook Pro (2011) which have 2 HD´s inside (DVD replaced by a caddy for a second HD) as i need more storage. Now with all the new 15´series this isn´t anymore possible as they decide to make the book smaller for "fashion" reasons…moreover now you have to decide right now (when purchasing a new model) for a SSD size…there is NO chance to replace it later by something else yourself….that´s just a stupid and devil behavior.

Same for the Retina display…it´s a joke to force people to go for this nonsense resolution where you can´t recognize anymore things without a magnifier (especially for music programs).

Luckily i bought on the last minutes a previous model (i7, 2.6 Ghz) before the stupid announcement-conference started.

Any chances of an el culto Bandcamp happening?

Sorry to say, but no plans for that as we are specialized and focused on physical products only.

I just recently purchased a used Klaus Wiese's Soma cd for $43.97....the most money Ive ever spent on a single cd.  A perfect copy it is but thats crazy or I am. 

Tomas are you listening.  Digital editions of Klaus Wiese out of print music as Castleview suggested.  :)

Someone is calling me  ;D

Soma isn´t official available at the moment - just spoke about that with the label today

Nevertheless, today we´ve managed to got some other old and long time sold out KW CDs (Turandot/Monsoon/Tariqa)  :)

From what i´ve read so far (specifications, expansion options, price????) for me it´s what it looks like…a trash bin  ;D

Hi there,

someone around here already running it?

It seems they changed quite a lot there!

It´s tempting because it´s free...BUT….never change a running system  ;D

...the 2cd was limited to under 100 copies...

...and you don´t complain? That´s quite surprising  ???

Sorry, but i couldn´t resist  ;D

Julio,

maybe worth to try it first with Reaper (free, but full Version) before buying the wrapper  :)

That are great news  :) Works even without the NUKE controller!

But it seems the plugin is a bit fussy with some hosts:

What I thought was cool about Acoustic Mirror was the use of impulses from the acoustics of actual spaces like Chicago's Navy Pier.  I saw a series of concerts in that pier, and it was fun comparing my memory of that space with the plugin.

Hi Forrest,

i agree, Acoustic Mirror is a great plugin but the GUI is terrible  >:( But it seems Sony don´t have any interest to update their Plugins.

Julio,

It would be great and interesting if you could post something (short video or audio) you have done with it so far!

You know as it is - demo-videos for a product are always too polished  ;D

Quote from: Altus

If an artist is going to do a limited release of that kind and not offer downloads to purchase as an alternative, (as far as I'm concerned) they're asking to be ripped off via piracy. I get the appeal of limited releases, but why piss off your listeners by not allowing them to hear your work. To collectors, downloads have no trading value, unlike a physical product, so they shouldn't be considered the same thing.

Allow me to rephrase a bit  ;D

"If Apple is going to release Logic only for Apple Computers and not offering to purchase it for Windows too, they're asking to create angry customers (of course, the piracy issue doesn´t work here...lol). I get the appeal of Mac´s, but why piss off your customers by not allowing them to work with your program on a PC?"

 ;)

For this example, is Apple now "devil" for you because it isn´t acting the way you would like to have it?

I hear and understand that you would love companies (or labels) just following the rules and wishes of (individual) customers, but if you run a company/label or whatever you have to follow first your personal believes/intentions and not "running behind" each personal wish from outside.
