So far so good. Things that are working so far:

- Superior Drummer
- DMGAudio plug-ins
- Trilian
- Reaper (duh)
- MOTU's hardware drivers
- EZKeys
- Ozone 5

That's really all the plugins that I use, but it's nice to open up a full project and have everything work straight away. :yesway:

Will report back if I find something broken.

Edit: I suppose "updating my DAW" is more like "Updating the Mac I use for recording", but you get the idea. :lol:

How is Reaper?
Is it as good as pro tools?

I used Logic before, but now i'm over on Presonus Studio One. It's brilliant so far. I haven't had any plugins or applications not work with ML.

What are the specs on your Mac? I'll be in the market shortly and I'm trying to decide how much to spend.

I have an older 2.66 27" i5 with 16GB of 1067 DDR3. Works great. :yesway:

I think basically the entire board uses Reaper, minus a few holdouts.

1.) It's cheap
2.) The business model (pay by usage, not by featureset) flat-out owns.
3.) It's good. Routing options are unparalleled, I don't know if Pro Tools does anything like the Reaper "track folders" thing but I'm hooked on it, it's pretty resource efficient, and it's super-stable. It's also updated CONSTANTLY by its developers.

I switched over years ago, and have zero regrets.
