by Richard Little from Saint Cloud, MNI got this thing running after adding another 8gb RAM and it's a monster. I used to be limited in terms of how may plugins/virtual instruments/tracks I could use but with the CS400 I can't seem to use... read more [+] more than 5-8% of my RAM in any project using Ableton 8. The extra hard drive is great and I love that everything is already optimized for music production. You most certainly get your money's worth out of this machine. close [-]
