Yep, you heard that right. Hybernation Studio now has a Mac. A 21.5" iMac with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.66gHz, with 4GB of RAM, to be specific.
I bought this used machine on a whim for a paltry $600, from a friend who no longer needed it after getting himself a MacBook Pro. I was thinking it would just be an experiment. A Toy. Something to mess with, and entertain the kids with using Photo Booth.
Little did I know I would fall in love with this unbelievably stable platform. I've been a PC user for my entire life, and have always stood by them. I still love them. Windows 7 64-bit is, without a doubt, the best and most stable Windows platform ever. But, now I see why everyone was telling me I needed to try a Mac.
So of course now I am wanting a full-blown 27" Core i7 iMac pretty bad, after acquiring Apple's DAW program "Logic Express". Logic is so intuitive and feature-rich. And incredibly stable. I believe it is my new favorite DAW, edging out Pro Tools. So, I'm willing to live with the somewhat limited hardware of this current Mac I own (compared to my quad-core PC) and will probably continue to use it as the platform of choice for composing, just because it's so incredibly stable, and Logic is so unbelievably productive for me. "It just works". Help, I'm turning into a Mac Fanboy!
This track is the first one I recorded completely in Logic on the Mac. Enjoy!
