Hi everyone, This is coming from the perspective of someone new to music production and with, at least initially, very minimal technical needs--my setup will be comprised of just Komplete 10 (VST library), Komplete Kontrol S25 (MIDI keyboard), Logic Pro X and an audio interface. 1) Does anyone know or can make an educated opinion on how a laptop with the 12" MacBook's specs (1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core M, Intel HD Graphics 5300) would run the setup I mentioned? To reiterate, as a beginner, my demands are minimal: if processing an effect takes 10 seconds on a mobile i5 and this Core M takes 45 seconds, I can tolerate it. Maybe. In case benchmark data for the exact CPU would help make some educated opinions: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+M-5Y71+@+1.20GHz&id=2465 There is a few Windows laptops running the same CPU as this new MacBook. If anyone happens to do music production on those, your experience would be particularily helpful. (Intel has compared Core M to a four-year-old Core i5 laptop chip) 2) Could you provide an example of where the CPU or the GPU (does that matter?) would be noticeably handicapping? 3) Komplete 10 requires a "Intel Core 2 Duo.” Does this new dual-core Intel Core M meet that minimum prerequisite? 4) This MacBook has only 1 port: a USB-C. I would need, presumably, a USB-C hub or Adaptor. There may be only one available at the moment, made by Apple (http://store.apple.com/us/product/M...5786d6137f9e64fb277700f9e78889558&fs=s=newest). Would connecting the audio interface to an USB-C adapter adversely affect performance and sound quality, as it can when connecting to a USB hub or do adapters and hubs behave totally differently? I’ve read that it’s best to get a “powered” USB hub to minimize latency with audio interfaces. Does that mean that the hub requires it’s own AC charger? Thank you for any help!
