Default Computer Upgrade suggestions


I have a Mac PPC dual 1.8 so I am unable to upgrade the processor. I run Pro tools 7.4.2 with Tiger 10.4.11. All my software and interface (002 rack) work perfectly and I am not eager to upgrade at this time.

I would like to purchase a used Mac that would provide improved processor speed for my sessions which involve quite a few plug ins as well as allow me to use reason in rewire mode. Also, is it possible to install my current recording drive where my sessions exist in the newly purchased mac?

MacBook Pro 2019 15 inch 32 GB RAM
Pro Tools 19.6
Apollo X8P
RPQ2 Stereo PreAmp
Some Analog Gear, Various Mics
Guitars, Electric, Acoustic, Piano

Default Re: Computer Upgrade suggestions

you have 2 options:
buy another G5 and hope it doesn't die to soon for a limited increase in power
or bite the bullet buy a Mac Pro and upgrade your software to 9 for a big step up in power

ether way you can move your session drive to the new case
