First off, please turn off your capslock. All caps is shouting.

VM Ware Fusion is the worst possible way to run Windows on a Mac. It's a virtual machine that runs on top of OSX. You should only run that if you have a Mac you can't Bootcamp and run Windows on. I don't know if Acid can open aiff files; only tried it with wav files.

Not only that ! You capslock seems to be stuck on too. I'd have a word with VMWare people. You grammar-checker also doesn't appear to be working ;-)

geoff

PS But seriously, hope somebody can point you in the right direction, because most here run the apps on the PCs ttat they were designed for. You may be better off in a VMWare forum....

MuchoDJ,

Give Parallels a try. It has been working flawlessly when I briefly tested it out. But these kind of Virtual Machine softwares aren't officially supported by Sony. You might find yourself with latency issues with your Audiocard drivers.

Yet, the SAFEST way to go with a Mac is definitely BootCamp. No latency issues for sure.
