I have an iBook g4 933mhz, 640mb of RAM. I would like to record multiple tracks (say 4) at a time, with a phonic helix 12 firewire mixer in logic. My question is simply - is it possible? Can my iBook handle that? Its not essential as I'm saving up for a macbook pro, but until I find the $$$$ for that, I'm stuck with the 'book.

Thanks!
Philip

Edit - I ask this because I have not yet ordered the mixer, and I'd like to know what I'm getting into!
Also, is there a less cpu intensive program someone could recommend for the 'book?

my ibook g3 could handle recording 8 tracks while playing back 16. shouldn't be an issue if you're using an external HD.

Thanks, I think I will go ahead and buy the mixer!
Any experience with the phonic helix?
