So I have been using PC slaves for my Master Mac computer, and Im looking to transition to a single Mac Pro and take advantage of the Disable/Enable feature in Cubase.
My question is if anybody knows which of the new macs would be better for a large composer template (500+ tracks). Is having more cores better or is having higher cpu speed better when considering Cubase on Mac?
Hi , i use a 6 core 3.33. for about 4 years now.and i chose this over a 12 core because of speed, too deep to go into here but i’m happy with my old 2010 desktop so far, but i will be upgrading if Apple upgrade the line this week. we shall see. Bottom line is a single cpu is better than 2.
I use a 6-core Mac Pro and my studio mate uses a 12-core. Performance of Cubase is no better on his than mine (even worse sometimes, oddly!). Whatever issue this points to with Cubase and for better or for worse, it’s safe to say that at this time you will not benefit from the much larger processors if you’re using Cubase. Higher clock speed is the way to go, until Cubase is able to use more cores efficiently.
