    macOS 11 Big Sur kills a lot of plugins

    Big Sur is a deal-breaker when it comes to Music Production especially if you use some legacy or free plugin that won't receive any update in the future. Most of my plugins were working as of beta 2 since it's the version number was still 10.16 except for those that were already crashing on...

    Using Logic Pro X (MBP 2018)

    I just dl'd the trial for Logic Pro X. So far, it's running well. Def a lot of GB for sound files. I currently have a 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, Catalina OS (MBP 2018). I'm still learning the ropes of Audio Production. Are these specs sufficient enough for an external MIDI...

    2020 i5, 2015 i7 MBA benchmarks and comparisons using Logic Pro X

    I just bought a new MBA (i5/16GB/256). I ran some tests in Logic and Cinebench to compare it with my old Air, and thought some here might be interested in what I found. With the talk of throttling, and cooling limitations I wanted to see how it compares to the old Airs. If this new Air isn't...

    what's a good macbook for music production?

    I'm thinking of getting the new macbook pro 2019 with 1.4ghz clockspeed because it's cheaper than the rest. I will only use it for music production -- logic pro x, and A LOT of vsts & plugins. will this be a good choice? or the 2.4ghz will be worth the additional costs?

    Hi everyone. I have an older Mac (early 2013 MBP), and I'd like to upgrade to Mojave from Sierra. My concern is, I've been working on an album of songs for nearly 2 years in Logic, and it would be pure hell if anything messed up those session files, with all their 3rd-party plug-ins, sample...

    So, I'm looking to buy a new Macbook Pro 15' 2018 for heavy music production, and I was wondering if someone who has one of these processors could tell me how it's working out for them. As I understand it, the 2.2 version is cooler and is less likely to suffer for thermal throttling, but, as...
