Advice Needed from PT Vista users.


thinking of building a PC with Vista as a mix rig (not 888s, just to mix on) with ProTools LE. My reasoning is that with the higher RAM amounts available (XP is capped at 4GB I believe) I can get a pretty high plugin count on my 48tracks.

I know this subject is a minefield and one that is navigated with research and not with a quick post here. My main aim here is to hear from GS who have ventured down this road with Vista and would have any advice on its pitfalls. I would either be running v7.4 or v8 depending on which is most stable (no doubt currently 7.4).

PT is only qualified with Vista 32 which has the same cap on ram accessing that XP does.
