Hi. Sorry if this information could have been found elsewhere, however I've searched but had no joy in finding it My girlfriend is studying a part time masters in music composition and we've decided that we really need to bite the bullet and go for a decent set up at home. Currently she's using Sibelius through an ageing PC laptop and it's not really ideal. Mac wise, we are looking to run Logic 9, which I understand is the way forward and some kind of musical notation program, we've looked at Sibelius, however if there is something out there that'll do the same job for less or better then that would be ideal. We need a home machine really, so we were looking at a desktop. It'll need to allow music composition with a couple of inputs (piano and voice) and perform quickly in Logic. We'd also like it to last a few years, I'd rather not need to replace it in the next 3 years at least. Other than that it'll need to operate as a Windows PC (sorry!) running virtual PC as I'll be using it for my work as an IT admin from home. Basically, I'm just after your opinion as to what we should be buying. We'll need to buy the mac and an something to connect a piano and a mic as well as the software for notating and Logic. Budget wise, I'd really love to buy the most basic Mini Mac, however that isn't going to cut it. We'd like a decent size screen and something that'll run the software for three years or a touch more. If that has to be a dual processor Xeon effort then we'll find the £3500 somehow, but I'd really rather not! Thanks in advance!
