Maybe, maybe not. DP is not really considered a "major" player. It used to be but then Logic ate it's lunch both in value and quality. I am assuming MOTU is doing this to keep their head above water. Their interfaces are low to mid level and that is really closer to the Win market. Guitar Center and big box types. The've been moving in this direction for a while. What with adding USB and diminishing Firewire for connectivity. In the pro world using DP is an oddball. Pro-Tools and Logic are the predominant tools. If Logic goes multi-platform we may have a problem.
Well obviously by the handle you aren't biased either.
With pleasure!speculate away.
I don't think so. It's not as if they're dropping the Mac version. So the only potential Mac Pro buyers whose computer buying decision would be impacted would be the handful of sound people who are normally inclined to Windows, but bought Macs solely because of DP. And I don't think that's a very large population; I figure any Windows-inclined DP users would just have switched to Pro Tools or whatever by now.Could this be another nail in the coffin of the MacPro as a DAW?
