Logic Pro X on iMac?

Recommended Posts



This is my first post here and my first DAW. I know this kind of question has been endlessly asked, but it's hard to find an answer that fits my particular situation in terms of computer and software.


In any case, I want to use Logic Pro X as my DAW. I want to run a lot of sample based VSTs like Spectrasonics Omnisphere, Trilian, and Stylus RMX. Also wish to run Native Instruments Komplete as well.


This is the iMac computer I'm considering buying:


3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Processor, 16GB DDR3 RAM


AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 2GB of GDDR5 Memory


256GB Solid State (SSD) Hard Drive (internal)


2TB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive (internal)


SuperDrive, Thunderbolt, FireWire, USB


Would this machine be adequate enough to run Logic Pro X as well as all these CPU-hog VSTs that I mentioned?


Thanks in advance...

1 SSD and 1 regular HD is the most likely scenario.


But to get the 2nd internal into the iMac you have to get rid of the Superdrive, which is the DVD drive. In that case it's the previous iMac model that still came with DVD drives and the user replaced it with either the SSD or another internal. The current iMacs don't come with DVD drives. You have to buy an external Superdrive (DVD drive).


Just make sure what the seller means with Superdrive.
