mctconsortium Posted October 31, 2011 Share Posted October 31, 2011 Help me decide: I'm a newer home studio diy enthusiast and I've outgrown my old macbook. I'm looking at a new machine and I'm wondering what you're thoughts are on whether one of the newly updated i7 MBP's would do the trick, or should I go with a Mac Pro? Mac Pro's I know are due for an update, so I'd likely wait, but I like the portability option for the MBP. What are your thoughts? I'm doing rock music with normally 6-8 guitar tracks, 4-8 vox, and then MIDI drums, keys, horns, etc. I work through an M-Audio profire 610; I'd also like to start offloading my library to an external HD (especially if I go the MBP route) to take some of the burden off my internal HD. Try not to be biased based on what you currently have, but instead please share what you think the true pro's/con's are for each. Basically, what would be the major downside to going the MBP-route? Am I likely to tap out it's CPU? I would think I'd be ok, considering I only start to run into issues on my 2007 2.2 core 2 duo macbook when I'm near the end of tracking. But I also want a system that will help me to retain the ability to grow and build on my studio for the next few years. Which way would you go if you were in my shoes? Thanks!!
