Re: Please recommend a replacement for 17" MacBook Pro

Darryl, your perspective is always insightful, sharp, and spot on. I was unaware regarding partitioning SSD drives. I LIKE the speed of the two SSD’s on my MacBook Pro. Your comments are enticing to...

Re: Please recommend a replacement for 17" MacBook Pro

Thanks! I saw a previous post that you’re awaiting an 8 core i9 2019 MacBook Pro? I think they upgraded the thermal paste, and are restricting power to the processor, which keeps them humming along...

Re: Please recommend a replacement for 17" MacBook Pro

The iMac 8 core i9, 2019 seems like the real deal. In spite of the fact that it doesn’t have the industrial strength heat dissipation that the iMac Pro does; its thermal handling is impressive. ...

2.3 Ghz i7. Heat issues finally steering me towards this move.

What I will miss:

Two onboard 1 tb SSD's: system drive 6g, scratch drive 3g (in the superdrive bay).

THREE USB ports,...

Re: 2019 iMac i9 + PT 2018 + Mojave

I mentioned the T2, because some are reporting i9 MacBook Pro crashes related to the T2. It is used on the iMac Pro, MacBook Pro and Mac mini. However, the T2 ideally is for performance enhancement.

Re: 2019 iMac i9 + PT 2018 + Mojave

This fellow is comparing video benchmarks between the iMac i9 8 core and the iMac Pro, and is very complimentary to the i9 iMac. He states that heat and throttling are NOT issues. The tradeoff is the...

Re: Is a new MacBook Pro enough for PT12 and a bunch of VIs and plugs?

Consider fan noise and heat with these laptops. It can get distracting. And using all those VI's, simultaneously? I always send my VI's to an audio track and print as I'm recording. Running open...

Re: best drum software?????

Re: Where is 12.8?

100% agree. Loops, drum machines, etc., can be fun, but are just facsimiles of the real thing. It's the interaction, unpredictable variables, expanding and contracting tempi, dynamics, rapport...

Re: SSD performance

It's like flying first class. Once you've had the experience, you can't go back. Another perk---defragging is not only a waste of time, it can actually make the SSD wear down faster.
