i own RME hardware, so that's a plus!
i was thinking about building a new machine that would be dedicated 
to being an audio maker. the mac running ydl is a 9600, but it has a 
digi AMiii card which i'm sure is useless to anything else but digi. 
(got the machine to run os x w/ digi's coreaudio though...)
and yes, i'm a professional musician. i've been tryign to sneak 
max/msp and supercollider into the pop world for a while now. and now 
supercollider server is being developed, there are already working 
linux ports of the synth server side (so i'm told) but not the 
language side..
