Re: [ARSCLIST] Software for Mac
I have a lot of personal tapes which I am restoring and archiving. I use BIAS Peak for my recording/editing and Waves' Restoration software for any clean up. I also transfer vinyl using the Inspire unit from Presonus. The Mac is also part of my home intertainment system where I use iTunes for my jukebox. For compression I go to AAC 192kbits. It all works well for me. The G4 I was using came to the end of it's 7yr life and I plan to replace it with a MacMini and a bunch of external HDs.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Software for Mac
I'm deciding whether or not to move my audio transfer workflow to Mac.
Pretty much everything else I do is on Mac, particularly since we do
a lot with video oral histories. Right now I use both SoundForge and
WaveLab on a Windows machine, and have considered trying Boot Camp and
Parallels so I can run them on my Mac. My systems guys warned me off
of Boot Camp, and so that leaves either Parallels ($79), so I can run
my software, or getting audio software that will run on a Mac. I can
always stay with my Windows machine for audio, but it drives me a bit
bonkers with its wonkiness. Any suggestions or sharing of experiences
using Parallels would be welcome.
