[Audio] Hackintosh for recording studio ?
Hi, I'm planning on building a hackintosh to record multitrack audio and I've got some questions.
First, I was going to use a pci interface to convert the analog signal, but I've heard that pci won't work on a hack mac, just pci-e. is this true? does anyone know of a good economical audio interface for 8+ channels?
I'm also wondering what kind of restrictions I need to consider when I choose all my parts.
Will any motherboard and cpu work? must they both be intel or something?
if anyone has any major rigs that they've constructed, or know of any that work, I'd love to hear about it.
I'd like to have 4 or more gb of ram, and about a dual core 2.8 ghz processor, or higher. The video card is not important. Anything will do pretty much. Are there limitations on what power supply I should use or any other parts?
I'm pretty new to this whole thing computer building thing.
Any help anyone can give will be well appreciated.

if you hve your hardware compled, then you should get an RME fireface 800 for rcording.
its working best. I would prefere Logic studio to work with.
i also would prefere a quadcore cpu for producing, cause you dont need a highspeed cpu, you will need multicore to work with a lot of instruments.
Well, personally I wouldn't go with a pci card....I have a Mackie Onyx 400F (firewire) and it works great with Tiger and Leopard! Just installed the Mac drivers from their website and fired up, boom, nice and loud.
But if you don't want to use a firewire card, maybe a DSP Hammerfall from RME (pci card) will work, they are very good and not expensive.
I heard, M=audio have problems, so I will check very good before i buy.
My experience with Mackie was absolutely fantastic, works smooth and nice.
