You can't. The mounting disk is .dmg for mac, while it's .exe for windows.

you are just better off to use a mac. even if you can get it on to windows, its the whole quality thing. most of the recording companies use mac. it sounds so much clearer.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

The sound quality is better on macs. Trust me. I've used music recordin programs on both mac and windows. Mac sounded way better, man.

Did you use the same program on the Mac and PC?

Often windows computers don't come with their own sound card. It's made by some foreign company. Mac makes everything they sell, virtually, and of course, because of that, it's basically bred to work perfectly with everything else.

Yes you can. But you have to be somewhat computer savvy. Essentially what you do is you make a partition designed to hold osx 10.5 (have to download it from internet) and then you can dual boot into either windows or "osx86".

Warning: you may screw up your comp, but if you're good with computers it's not hard to install.

There's a cracked version of MAC OS that works in PC's.
Install it in a different partition and use it to use Garage Band.

Good idea, but he'd then have a mac computer. I think what he's looking for is running it on the windows partition.

Ah, ok. I was just looking for some reasoning behind that

Just use audacity, its the windows version...or so everyones says...

Also go to the R&R form for recording questions...

did you use an audio interface between the two programs?
if not, im sure your results are thrown off...

I personally believe mac and PC are fairly equal. It's all prefrence in the end...
I use a PC with cakewalk sonar 6 producer myself...and the m-audio 2496 for an interface. I have only used a mac for editing video and audio at a few jobs but I didnt see or hear any difference.

Theres no point installed Mac's OS on a pc cause youre still using a PC soundcard ffs.

Just get Sonar and a Line6 Toneport.
