Re: M1 Pro or MBP 2019 i7?

The biggest problem with the MBP 2019 i7 is the fans coming on, in particular if you have an external screen connected. The i7 is better than the i9 for almost no difference in real-world performance...

Re: M1 Pro or MBP 2019 i7?

You keep asking the same question. Are you hoping for a different answer?

There are now about 10 threads on this subject.

What do you want to know that isn't already covered?

Re: New Mac - M1 vs Mac Pro 2019

-actually - if it already has Apple RAM, then you need to work out if the cheapest thing to do is add two more sticks of Apple RAM, or take it all out and buy 6 sticks of something else. Although...

Re: New Mac - M1 vs Mac Pro 2019

[forum is only letting me post one sentence at a time!]

It's worth getting 6 (or 12) RAM DIMMS, which uses the triple-channel architecture for more speed. But don't buy Apple RAM - after market...

Re: New Mac - M1 vs Mac Pro 2019

The 16 core CPU still has quite a high clock speed and there is a big price jump to the next step. There's a limit of 768GB RAM up to that point, and the 24 and 28 core can take 1.5TB.

Re: New Mac - M1 vs Mac Pro 2019

The Pro Vega II is overkill but it does have a lot of TB ports - four.
The only downsides are (1) it takes up 4 slots so if you have a lot of cards (UAD, HDX) you've limited how much space you have...

Re: Pro Tools 2021.10 on Mac

I said the 7.1 (16-core) was close to the M1 Max in processing power. It is, in my testing. It's clearly totally different in terms of expandability - RAM, SSD, external connectivity etc.
In terms...

Re: Carbon Users - What OS are you on?

This thread is about MacOS versions.

Plenty of other threads on M1 Max.

Re: New Mac - M1 vs Mac Pro 2019

It's not fixed. It can't be fixed, at least not properly.

From Big Sur on, all machines with a T2 chip or an M1 chip cannot boot if the internal disk is fried/broken/bricked. So, in the old days...

Re: New Mac - M1 vs Mac Pro 2019

There's about 10 threads already on this subject, but as I have a Mac Pro 7.1 16-core and a 16" MBP M1 Max, I'll write it again.

The CPU processing power of the two platforms is about the same....

Re: Pro Tools 2021.10 on Mac

Base PT runs ok on Monterey on M1 Max but the Avid Complete Bundle doesn't work and Eucon is a total disaster. Things are so bad that I'm trying the betas, which I have never done before.

Re: Pro Tools 2021.10 on Mac

I believe M1 Macs are now supported on Big Sur 11.6 and PT 2021.10

Clearly this does not include M1 Pro...

Re: Pro Tools 2021.10 on Mac

No need for an external drive for sessions if you have space on the internal one.

If you do decide to use an external drive, then you only need one (you don't need one for recording and one for...

Re: Carbon Users - What OS are you on?

If you read the Carbon release notes you will see that Big Sur 11.3 and 11.4 introduced some fixes for AVB problems and other Carbon related issues, although the precise details are a bit vague.

Re: Ultra Wide Monitors Woes Woes With Mac mini M1?

Re: M1 vs M1 Pro vs M1 Max

This article disagrees with you, and says that the M2 chip will probably come to the new MB Air early next year. But the implication is that the M2 will be faster than the existing M1 but not as fast...

Re: Carbon- Basic Questions..

Only reason to set the buffer low is because you're tracking VIs or Native plugs.
Otherwise, you can just leave it at 1024 - it simply uses less CPU.

Re: M1 vs M1 Pro vs M1 Max

I have an 16" M1 Max and PT loads if you remove the Avid Complete Bundle. I can't guarantee that everything works but it will start and play the demo song.

Re: Carbon- Basic Questions..

How can you tell you're getting latency on a reverb plug? I mean, it's reverb, you won't hear latency except as some additional pre-delay.
Ecoplate is not an AAX-DSP plug, so you won't be able to...

Re: M1 Max MacBook Pro Monterey, Kontakt Crashing Pro Tools

No. Certainly not on M1 Max. Avid Complete Bundle doesn't work.
I mean, PT runs, but Monterey on M1 isn't reliable at the moment.
