Hot rumors this week (already) -

FCP 4: Thinksecret reports that FCP4 could be released as early as June 9. They report that the release was originally scheduled for June 16 but that it was moved up a week.

QT 6.3: Thinksecret also reports on a Quicktime update (6.3) due out soon, possibly today. One improvement is supposed to be in the area of audio/video synchronization.

970: Macwhispers reports that the 970 chip is 25% cheaper than the current Motorola chips. That won't mean the computers will be that much cheaper though....it's just the chip price. Another rumor site suggests that the new computers might be able to handle 32gb of RAM.

I'd like an non-Apple opinion of usability before I jump on teh upgrade. Maybe even wait for the first patch.

Got mine today. I must say I'm really impressed. SoundTrack blows me away. It's a complete advanced music making app. 24 channels of audio output is sweet. I hooked it up to my Motu 828. Compressor seems very, very good. This is really a MAJOR upgrade.

Nick. You're not really going through the Lindy Hop tutorial everytime a new release is out are you? C'mon. It's hard to learn FCP...but not that hard ;)

By the way. I'm still amazed. The intelligent RT setting is wonderful.

I couldn't tell you, I don't remember an issue, but I don't use the tutorials much, having been with FCP since version 1.25 Also worth noting is that FCP has now moved to FCP HD with version 4.5

1.25? wow! I've only been using since 3. Is 4.5 SD & HD or HD specific?

It's two, it's two, two NLE's in one. Kidding aside 4.5 does both, with the right hardware to support HD.
