@ Vibrant Audio & chibear:
Appreciate the replies.

I've been lurking for a couple months and that was the first
thing I noticed. Not only their being open to suggestions, but their responsiveness and persistence in helping users resolve problems is absolutely second to none. Every software developer on the planet could learn from the folks at Acoustica in this regard.

Those are the ones I'm concerned about with the RAM limitation of a 32-bit app. I understand certain Kontakt 5 libraries in Komplete 8 (I'm looking at you, Studio Drummer!
) and Guitar Rig 5 can be CPU hogs. Think I can work around it. Been using a dual core machine with a whopping
2 GB RAM for the last five years and found the limits of what can be done there... guessing a quad core i5 or i7 addressing 4 GB RAM would get me far enough beyond that to not be a substantial issue.

This I am pleased to hear.
Hi, and welcome back to the PC world
The only reason I left was because Vista was released and XP vanished two weeks before I was ready to buy.
I couldn't find a kind word anywhere about Vista or from anyone I know who was using it. Didn't wanna wait for it to get sorted so...
Windows 7 appears stable and is still readily available. (Win8 receives mixed reviews.) I'm probably the only (current) Mac user you'll ever encounter who isn't
a Mac snob.
Computers are just tools to me. I care not who creates them. (Of course, considering I can score a couple software instruments I've wanted for ages and
a PC with the same juice, storage, etc. for the same money that just a new Mac would cost, well...

Will investigate this one.

Who do I talk to about getting a "D'oh!" emoticon added?
On my way to do that right now. (Read: Thanks for reminding me to do the obvious thing that I overlooked.
