Response to: Great article

It worked flawlessly for me. I just plugged it in and fired up Garage Band, and I was off. There's a tiny bit of lag if you do it that way -- they provide special "low latency" drivers, but my keyboard and mixing skills aren't good enough to warrant the extra hassle. Professional musicians might feel differently.

Re: the DVD burner. You're going to have to get a copy of Toast, and even then, you won't get full use out of the burner. Apple intentionally crippled iDVD so that it only works with their own (internal-only) burners.

Good article overall, but it's not fair to blame the Mac just because you wanted to buy a bunch of new toys (like the LCD). ;-)

    Hello, I've asked this to other peope. Sorry for cut and paste: I'm wondering if you now have experience with how many tracks (overall, not simultaneous recording) of live audio GArage BAnd on the mini can support? Any experiences to share?
