    Hi,
    After much hard thought and research I've decided to go Mac (Pro) for my audio sequencing (multitrack) and video editing needs.

    While I plan to use Final Cut Express to for my ('prosumer') video editing needs, I had had my heart set on using Sonar Producer Edition 6 as my multitrack program (will be using an RME FireFace 400 as my audio interface).

    I have heard on other forums of people successfully and unsuccessfully using PC sequencing programs like Sonar via Bootcamp, and am wondering if anyone here has done this as I plan to install XP or Vista on the Mac and use Sonar.

    I'm specifically interested in any conflicts/problems/solutions, and - the main bain of recording audio on the PC in a multitrack situation when using an audio interface - would love to know about the degree of latency that results.

    Thanks,

    GVDV

    sonar and bootcamp

    I am actually running sonar 8 on a black mac book - with the M-AUdio Firewire 410. My only issue has been with also using an external firewire drive, which does not seem to work, although the 410 works just fine. So I hook my external drive through USB 2.0
