I have been struggling for a while with older Macs, which haven't really been able to cope with the demands of large sample libraries (East West Gold/ Garritan) - and my professional work (TV and library music mostly) necessitates an upgrade.
I would be very grateful if anyone could advise on the merits and demerits of the new MacBook Pro regarding such usage, as opposed to the larger and more cumbersome Mac Pro.
My question is: can the MacBook Pro cope with the demands of professional music audio? At what point would I reach its limitations?
The programs I mainly use are: Nuendo, ProTools M-Powered, Sibelius, Kontakt 2, Ableton Live.
with thanks in advance taking the time to reply ...
