Cool, I'm looking forward to hear it! :-)

Speaking about fan noise: I was luckily able to do this: I made a small hole i 
the wall and placed the computer outside the studio. So S/PDIF, USB, ethernet 
and sound card interface cables are running trough it. That said, I'm also 
using a Fractal Design Define R5 chassis for the computer, so the CPU is seldom 
hotter than 30 degrees Celsius and the thing is almost dead quiet.  :-)
