But there are SO many options available in between a 2012 Mac mini and a yet-to-be released Mac Pro, are there not?So I would suggest:
2) Save up for the Mac Pro (as long as it looks like its a good machine)
I can't answer that, but I will say that SSDs are a far bigger upgrade than a new computer, and you can use drives you buy now with your next machine.So, from my understanding, regardless how many SSDs to buy, you would take the upgrade-now route instead of buying-new-computer-later. Am i right?
Typically that hasn't happened with Macs.I would wait for the Mac Pro Release, maybe the old one will have a big price drop.
That's a good question and the answer is yes.have you tried loading the type and size of orchestral projects you are aiming for with the libraries and courses ?
Wow!! That is new to me. And good to know!SSDs helps with both performance and memory (because you can use smaller buffers)!
Where are you getting your information? If you mean fans revving from thermal throttling, this seems to have been largely resolved for the 2019 iMac. Not just citing my experience, but there are a number of online demonstrations showing the improved efficiency, including one running a huge Logic template with tons of reverbs on each instance before the machine breaks a sweat.ridgero,
My plan was similar to yours until I was told about how noisy the fans are in the new iMac....The cooling system is not the same as the one in the iMac Pro.....Jim
I’ll probably do a mini, or build another PC....Apple has not done us musicians any favors in the last few years unless we pay top dollar .....PC’s continue to be a bargain $4$......Jim
