Oh yah - that kind of capability when I was a music student would have  
cost upwards of £100k and be branded Fairlight. And still sucked  
relatively speaking.[1]

If I'd have had it then, I would never have emerged from my room.  
Which was a close shave for the brewing industry.

Seriously, GB is basically the Logic Pro engine, with a nice consumer  
front end, less all the high end stuff.

[1] This when PowerPC was a far distant glint on the product roadmap.  
And System7 was very, very new. And yet even then we laid out whole  
newspapers on Aldus Pagemaker.
