I've got some money for a purchase and then it hit me; Maschine! I was waiting for the 1.1 update for the midi out but i've read that it's a bit heavy on the cpu so was going to wait til i upgraded. I'm running windows 7 on a 1.6ghz core2duo laptop with 3gb ram so will this be sufficient? Also will it only be able to sequence other equipment in midi control mode? Sorry if it's already been asked but it just occured to me! Anyway i'll post more questions depending on the answers i get. Cheers.
