Quad-Core MacBook Pro Flawlessly Runs Music Studio Equipment

Quad-Core MacBook Pro

When setting up a home recording studio, one of the most important things to keep in mind is the capability of your computer. With so many pieces of equipment being run through your device, ensuring you have enough processing power to handle the load is essential to running professional-grade recording programs like Logic Pro and Pro Tools smoothly, as well as ensuring your model doesn’t crash in the middle of an elaborate session. One way to counter-act overloading inferior hardware and avoid any potential technical difficulties is by purchasing a computer you know can handle the load before you start setting up all the equipment – such as a refurbished Apple Mac Pro 2x 3.2GHz Quad-Core Xeon E5482 or a new Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch 2.6GHz Quad-core Intel i7 with Retina Display.

While one model is a refurbished desktop and the other is a brand-new laptop, both come equipped with Quad-core processors, which are built to run an assortment of tasks at once and can handle pretty much any combination of studio equipment you can come up with. Say you’re trying to record an electric guitar through Logic, via an Avid/M-Audio Fast Track C400 Audio Interface, while simultaneously mixing the song along the way with high-powered, built-in plug-ins. Or, you could possibly be attempting to slave a beat-making program like Reason through a 64-bit interface like Ableton, to maximize your output quality. Well, in either of those situations, most computers operating on anything less than a Quad-core processor would shrivel up and crash. But, with either of the aforementioned models, you can maneuver between tasks with little to no lag-time and wrap up your studio sessions quicker than ever.

To save yourself lots of potential headaches and see if an Apple Mac Pro 2x 3.2GHz Quad-Core Xeon E5482, Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch 2.6GHz Quad-core Intel i7 or any other of our Quad-core models would be right for your music studio set-up, check out the wide selection of high-powered Apple PCs at Mac Of All Trades today.
