The comment: "The software called MacMix ran on the newly introduced Apple Mac Plus computer, a machine that had no hard drive, a CPU that clocked in a blistering at 16 kHz."  brings a smile when I read about and talk to placebophiles who are struggling to play audio transparently on 64 bit 16-way multi processors with clock speeds up in the thousands of megahertz.
16 kHz? I don't think so. By 1975 every available microprocessor had clock speeds in the low MHz range (6502, 8080, Z80).

Good eye!

says that the Mac Plus processor was a "Motorola 68000 @ 8 MHz"

My mistake may have been precipitated by me confusing an Audio Guy with an IT Guy.  Either is a pretty big specialty to juggle all by itself.
