Would a 13" MacBook Pro i5/8GB be good enough for making music and podcasts in Garagband?

    Hello. My question is pretty much what the title states. We are looking to get back into some music making and dabble in some podcasting.

    As far as music goes, I am not talking about 20 tracks simultaneously running. Perhaps, 10 at the most and more than likely recorded separately. Podcasting, however, will include 4-8 people live at the same time...most likely only 4 at a time, though.

    Anyhow, I am looking at the 13" MacBook Pro i5/8GB version. I know that is only dual core, so that is why I am asking: Will this model be good enough for what I described?

    Thank you in advance for you help, advice and responses.

    Of course it works. You could even get a second hand iPad,and an old guitar,then make a square iPad-sized hole in the guitar,after removing strings,then,with some rubber padded clamps,attach the iPad in the hole,start garage band,and become a diy guitar hero.
