Any opinions on how the 6-core i7 at 3.2 GHz would compare to the 4-core i7 at 4.2 GHz in the iMac? I'm thinking about the new mac mini as a replacement for my iMac.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other... really. The 2017 iMac is the best when it comes to single core tasks, while the Mac Mini will probably have a slight edge in multicore processing.

Still waiting on that package! Says it's coming today now!


I'll be doing preliminary tests this weekend with a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 on Pro Tools 12.6. I'll upgrade to .2018 only if I need to. If things look good, I'll move it to the studio next week with the VRS-8s.



That's running Mojave.


Pray for Mojo.

I’ve got my new MacMini this week. Installed a memory upgrade myself. Yesterday I’ve been busy buying a screen, usb-c adapters, updating and installing ProTools 2018.10 and all plugins. I’ll try some tests this evening.

Been setting mine up slowly since Weds.

All good so far.

Actual CPU tests come Monday.

Too bad. For me the soldered storage is a dealbreaker. Don't actually mind soldered CPU but I am fairly sure in couple of years I need more terabytes than is affordable today.

Had to run out and buy a new wireless router; apparently this new Mac Mini is too l33t for the router I bought two years ago.


Just booted up, installed Firefox. Getting Pro Tools set up now; gonna do some recording tests with no plugins installed.


Be back in a bit!
