I have an late 2013 27" iMac. I upped the specs to the high end i7, updated graphics, and a 256 GB SSD. I did not upgrade from the stock 8 GB of RAM yet. I have two 3 TB Thunderbolt drives. One of them is for my iTunes library. I have a very large iTunes library — about 2.2 TB, 201,325 items (I have a large music collection myself and recently inherited a huge classical music collection from someone who was somewhat of a hoarder). I'm seeing a lot of beachballs in iTunes — presumably because of the shear size. What I'm wondering is if this is an issue that I can just throw RAM at. Or is it a limitation of iTunes? If the latter is true, what's the suggested fix — split the library up, or use some other program? If I can solve this by adding more RAM, that would be great. Anyone else have experience with this issue?
