    I'm about to sell my old audio recording gear to purchase a newer more functional setup.

    What software/hardware are Mac users utilizing in order to record your music?

    Be sure to list all programs as well as any interfaces in addition to the specs of the machine being used as well.

    Pictures if you got'em!
