I'm looking at the CS "Tower+" and the "Rack," and am seeking input as to the appropriateness of my choice. I'm primarily a composer/arranger, running SONAR Home Studio (soon to upgrade to more expansive version of SONAR) and Sibelius. However, I am going to be working on "recording" my charts with VIs and some audio tracking. I don't see any projects taking up more than a couple of dozen audio tracks, once MIDI tracks are re-recorded - at least not right away. So here are my questions:
1. Assuming I have a couple of VI libraries (and I can't afford any of the massive, $25 million Symphonic libraries, as much as I would like to have them...), are these two CS choices adequate? Are they too much?
2. It is my understanding that, should my collection of VI libraries and other plug-ins grow very significantly, I can add another hard drive. But would the processor still be up to the task? Can that be upgraded as well?
3. Do the CS models come in mauve? My wife is very conscious of color coordination.
4. I also understand that Sweetwater guarantees that anything I produce on a CS machine will be a massive hit and make me HUGE chunks of money. Is this correct?
