Track count with G5 Logic Pro 8

I have a Powermac G5 Dual core 2 GHZ 8 GB RAM. I am considering buying the Logic Pro 8 however I would like to know about the track counts.

I am using 2 internal hard drives(one for recording) and can add more externals if neccessary.

I would like to know the track count with no plugins with a stable operation at 44.1, 48, 96 and 192kHz. Is there anyone with a similar machine(2.0 or 2.3GHz G5) who can tell me?

Many thanks in advance

Not trying to dodge the question, but will you be using a lot of softsynth tracks? This will make a big difference.

As far as straight audio, I run everything at 24/44.1 since I have great converters in my Metric Halo, and have been happy in "full band" sessions with around 20 tracks (several of them stereo) and plenty of plugs. I know that's not a scientific or exact answer, but it gives you an idea.

Mine is a dual 1.8 with 3 gigs of ram, and I run external firewire drives for audio.

Hey, thanks for the reply!
No, I'm not planning on using many softsynths since we have plenty of external stuff.
What I'm interested in are the capabilities of the combination of the G5 and Logic Pro 8 purely as a 'tape machine' with different resolutions. Is there a chance that we will be able to record at least 24 tracks at 96 kHz? 10 tracks at 192kHz?
