I bought a PSMT D2D system a couple years ago, have sold the D2D since, but
still use and love the Synclav... still nothing sounds quite like it! I have
a PSMT with 16 MB and 32 voices. System was built for Chico State
University, and has been upgraded with a 9 GB W0, a Tahiti 5 2.6 GB MO, and
5.1 software. Runs great on my G3 300 or TiBook 550 -- superfast
screen-draws without the PowerPC upgrade. Will be launching a website for
the studio with pix of the system.
