Hi Guys,


Aiming to set up a home recording studio, I got hold of stuff like (Kontakt 8, Real Strat, Real Guitar, Studio Drummer, Guitar Rig etc .. etc...) ; got some good hardware (Audio Technica ATH-M50 , M-Audio Sound Card, Rode NT-1A etc... etc)  ...


I use all this with my 2010 white mac (2.26 core 2 duo , 4GB ddr3 ram, 60Gb HD free) and i'm badly stuck with overloading errors ...!! I've even seen this issue happening even on the new macbook pro's so I'm wondering if spending a fat amount an upgrading to an iMac would solve the problem ...??


P.S - I've tried freezing, increasing buffer size, bouncing tracks and all that...


Thanks again for your valuable suggestions..




MacBook (13-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Hi! I had the same issue and I decided to upgrade. I should advise you to do it. If possible, and is on your budget, get as much RAM as you can. Maybe you do not need it now but you won't regret in the future.

    In addition, you can also install Logic in your MacBook and it will also be useful sometimes to work on your projects.

    Hope it helps
