    Congrats! I love mine, though it is admittedly starting to age. I can still get around 70 stereo tracks while mixing, though some tracks have to have their FX frozen, lol.

    Going to order mine soon, too, just after a few more gigs this month I should have saved enough to cover it. Need it badly...

    The new Cat arrived today.
    Our 'ol Pal wasn't $hittin' us!
    This Cat "purrs", but you can't here it.
    Not "whisper" quiet; mute.
    Dead silent.
    Got my FW-1884 installed and working flawless.
    Now the torture of installing all my software; what was I thinking!
    Thanks Jim!

    What are the specs?

    StudioCat > I use Windows 10 and Sonar Platinum. I have a touch screen.
    I make some videos. This one shows how to do a physical loopback on the RME UCX to get many more equalizer nodes.

    Bash good to see you!
    I'm loading software, not so much fun
    But, the M.2 sure loads the SD3 kits in a big fat hurry!
    God damn, its like Superior 3 loaded 15 minutes before I opened the project.

    Those M.2 Ultra SSDs sustain ~3400MB/Sec   
    As a point of reference, SATA SSDs sustain ~540MB/Sec
     
    If you have a library that loads slow... or where you need extreme disk-streaming polyphony, M.2 Ultra SSD can make a huge difference.

    Always wanted an XKE. WOW! I could "settle" for an F-Type; yeah man!
    </offtopic>
    Lovin' my Cat...
    Boys (and girls), you gotta get an M.2 for your samples.
    If/when you upgrade to a MB that supports it; pull the trigger.
    Best money I've ever spent!
    Oh, and Jim is the best!
    Buy a Cat and never look back, my 2010 rig is still runnin' strong,
    and Our 'ol Pal just replaced his 8 year old Cat; nothin' purrs like a Cat!
