The iMacs on the other hand can also be very powerful 'beasts' but again. It's already quite stable but could improve. A separate vintage keyboard and organ collection includes such niceties as B3-style drawbars, a vastly configurable Leslie simulator, and a suitcase-style electric piano, along with a new-for-10. You can adjust the frequency of fills, whether they're using the toms or hi-hats more in a given section, and even the frequency of ghost notes and whether they're rushing the beat a la Stewart Copeland or relaxing the groove a la John Bonham. Oh, I need to score over film too.
A large monitor is probably the main advantage, thinking about it. I'll probably get a mid-tier Mini since I feel like the 1. Getting those same specs on a Mac Mini, though, would be half the price. I'm pretty sure that Art of sound that posts on here is an advocate of the mac mini's so no doubt he'll be a long shortly to give you some better first hand advice! This is a serious boon for live recordings of bands or singer-songwriters that want to get ideas down quickly and then also use them to form the basis of the final project, as opposed to having to do it all again later to a metronome. For musicians amateur and professional, Logic Pro 9 is one of the easiest and most powerful audio suites available, and even after working with it for a year we have still not seen all it has to offer.
So I'm going to be attending college soon for a digital media course and one of the components of the course is sound design. Apple offers a that lets you set up keyswitches on an 88-key keyboard, and you can also for different instruments and ; there are separate ones for the horns as well. Today's baseline Mac Mini also has a 2. There are a few bugs e. They are not going to be massive projects or anything.
Excuse my naivety; if you need any more info from me, please just ask. Get the i7 if you can, imho. There are also plenty of guitar and bass amp simulators and effects included as well. Keep up the good work! The transport is located at the top of the screen and away from any keyboards, mixing surfaces, or other things you may have sitting at the bottom of the monitor and blocking part of the view. Funny I'm trying to get a iMac g5. That's obviously true for third-party libraries too, although some offer more immediate gratification than others. So much so I now own 5 of them.
You can't run it from an external drive. Will I see a big difference in performance between my old Mac Pro's 2x2. Full Specifications General Publisher Publisher web site Release Date March 02, 2015 Date Added March 02, 2015 Version 10. Depends on what you plan to record and if you plan to mix on it. I then imported in some clav loops and watched as Logic Pro adjusted the rhythms to follow the tempo map from the clapping exactly.
You must be 18 years or older. Logic needs to run from the main system drive. But the transition has not been intuitive at all. Unfortunately they are all gone now. Furthermore I have been using Logic for 8 years and so many things do not work like they did on previous versions that I feel like I am facing a learning curve that is ridiculously steep for an experienced user. I'm tempted by a Mac Mini, as I already have a decent screen, but am concerned that it won't be able to cope with the requirements of audio recording.
I'm not advising anyone to do this. If your doing voice overs, and you know your work will not be to processor intensive, thats another story. Or storing the samples lib on it. There's no denying the company packs in a couple grand worth of plug-ins with Logic, easy. The Touch Bar, along with Logic Remote on an iPad, further reduces the need for an expensive hardware transport and mixing controller that also takes up space on your desk. I'd appreciate any input you guys have! Among the most important factors to consider in determining such handling are the type and speed of the processor, the amount of memory and the speed of the hard disk.
A typical session for me would be 16-32 tracks of audio, no virtual instruments or amp sims. I am just wondering if anyone had used a mini for this purpose and how have your results been A Mac mini is basically a lap top without the screen or keyboard or battery. Sorry for the ramble here but would welome any advice, based on my particular circumstances and needs! I'm thinking about a new Mac Mini. Just curious really, and thought that myself and others could learn a little something. There is no loss in trying. You can also finally apply fades to multiple regions simultaneously—a single change that can make sound design or track editing much faster.
Most of my stuff is simple two or four track but i do have pretty intensive processing demand with multiple open apps, browsers et. Close Final Cut Pro X is a huge leap forward for professional video editing. In a nutshell, the Mac Mini remains a basic, yet capable machine that provides a good starting point. It will play it just like a normal audio file instead of trying to process everything in real time. This link may provide some additional information: If cost is an issue it's always an issue!!! Cons The lack of support for all my 32 bit plugins is inexcusable. A picture always tells the story. But it worked well in testing; my wife clapped in a syncopated rhythm in Adapt mode, and Logic perfectly mapped out the grid lines and tempo map measure by measure.
