Here's a weird question for you... I'm wondering if it would be possible to run an Avid/Digidesign 003 console on the new Mac Pro. I realize that the Mac Pro doesn't have any firewire ports, but thought maybe a thunderbolt-to-firewire adapter might work.

I only have one Windows pc left in my house, and it's running my studio. I have a 2009 Mac Pro that I use for a file server, and it causes me no grief. However, the pc running studio software is nothing but instability and problems. I would love to pick up one of the new Mac Pros and dump the pc, but don't know if it will work with my studio hardware.

Adapter will work the same way it works on the imac. Fine,

Make sure you go into avid.com and look at technical issues if you plan to use Protools 11 and 10 together in the same machine. There are still bug issues using Maverick with PT 11.

ok. Thanks for the warning. Am I better to stay with the Windows version for a while? I was just assuming that the Mac version would likely be more stable.
