My old Mac Mini has ended and I have purchased a new Sierra 10.12/MacPro (2.7 GHz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5, 16 GB 1866 MHz DDR3, AMD FireFro D700 6144 MB) to take it’s place.
On my old Mac Mini, all my projects were set at 16 bit/44.1 khz. With the new Sierra 10.12/MacPro, there is no support for firewire, and this means my ProFire 2626 is not supported, which lead me to purchase the Focusrite 8 Prex Thunderbolt. As a result, I have the ability to change my project settings to 24 bit/192 khz, but it will NOT play the VSTs properly - jagged sounding, like a car that will not start sound.
My question is, do I have to create new projects with the 24 bit/192 khz first, followed by copying and pasting the tracks(midi) for this to work?
I find it hard to believe that this computer does not have the processing speed or power to play/record at 24 bit/192 khz or is it that the VST(s) (Native Instruments Kontakt 5, Toontrack EZ Drummer, etc…) that cannot handle the settings?
Thanks in advance
