You can have both now that you have Mavericks, and why not, it costs $0 but you can purchase a few extras for next to nothing. However, any usefulness will depend on what you intend to do and how you incorporate GB 10 into your projects. For example, GB6 projects can be loaded into GB10 but not vice versa unless you save the GB10 to disc as an audio file and load it back into GB6. This is what I do as I like to use the Arpeggiator in GB10 and the midi control over real time pan and volume changes, for this I use a midi controller keyboard M-Audio Axium2 using DirectLink. There are new learning curves for GB10 as it is a similar but not identical layout to GB6. We cannot load loops in GB10 so I do that part in GB6 and then move that into GB10 when I want to add more. GB10 will also load Logic and Kontakt Instruments. Here is a guide Keith has put together.
