That sounds good..as far as why Mac is used, when i researched it i found out that the software (Rane,Serrato) locks up sometimes with PC but not with Mac. I have a PC laptop but once i found this out i went and bought a Mac laptop and have not had any problems.
I'm trying to find a carrying case now for my NS7. Trying to wait for the price to come down a little more.
Yeah i know what u mean..the Rain mixer is around $1200 - $1500..I have a Numark NS7 & one speaker i bought with tax refund..working on getting more speakers, stands and a carrying case but other things always seem to come up to use up money saved.
