Hi, I am buying a new mac pro this week and have been sorting through info trying to figure out what I need to monitor my audio properly. I'll be working with final cut studio 2 and CS3 apps and doing the best stereo mix I can. I don't need top of the line at all, if a project is big enough I'll have a post audio house do it for me. I need the basics to get a decent stereo mix, I just don't know what that is. I'm wary of computer speakers and I don't know if I *need* a mixing board. I'd love to hear what you guys have to say. Thanks.
