Hello! I have a Macbook Pro 13" late '12 model that I have used as a student computer the last three years. A couple of years ago I bought Logic Pro X, a really awesome music production application that I just cannot say enough good things about. However, a couple of days ago I was trying to record some music with my new midi keyboard. I only used 6-8 tracks (3-4 of them were midi tracks) but the Macbook crashed a few times, and once so hard that it forced log of and I almost lost all of my work (luckily it autosaved everything). So the question is, what may be the «bottleneck» here? The day I bought it I installed a Samsung 830 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM, and the SSD is really, really slow now compared to when it was new. Very inconsistent in the blackmagic disk test, but everything from 100 to 300MB/s. It also has an Intel i5 2,5GHz processor. So what do you think? Would it be enough to just buy a new SSD, or should I invest in a new Macbook? I am planning to make noticeably more complicated projects with much more tracks and plugins and so forth in the future. EDIT: I first considered to buy an iMac to use for studio purposes only, but I figured that I need it to be portable because I will be moving away to study music next year. So I need enough power to run a, not very big but certainly not small, home studio. It is/will also be my personal laptop so it will not be used for studio purposes only.
