I have a Macbook (i7, 16GB RAM, 2017 model) and am planning to buy a Mac-mini / NUC (32GB RAM) to work as slave.
The Slave would be used to host libraries.

Is this a powerful setup to run hybrid-orchestral sessions (>150 tracks) ?

Right now, I'm running everything on my Macbook and it takes a toll due to heating issues and CPU overload.

Have you bought it? Or still thinking? Cause I was thinking about buying it too.

Whats your Master system ?
And which DAW do you use ?
Srikant,

Thank you for asking.

Master is 2013 Mac Pro (see attached photo) 6 core 64GB ram 2TB (OWC), Logic Pro, LG 43” Monitor (fantastic with Logic, screen sharing for 2018 Mac Mini slave 64GB/2TB and scoring to screen-all in front of you), Focus Thunderbolt - 128 buffer - Mac mini 100 tracks - Mac Pro 40 tracks, Hornberg breath controller.

This is the best, most quiet and cleanest set up I have ever owned (and let me tell I have gone through many set ups - to much time).

I always ask myself - “How do I want to spend my life between now and death”.

Fantastic....I'm planning something similar. I use Logic as well.
Could you share your mail ID please ?

I would be getting in touch with you very soon regarding the setup process.
