Hi there. Just got myself a nice new MBP Retina 2,8 GHz laptop because I was fed up with having both a studio PC and an office laptop. So everything’s running nice off the MBP now.
Besides getting used to producing on a laptop the fan noise is driving me NUTS. My old windows pc was very quiet and of course it wasn’t sitting on my desk so I never noticed it.
Now the new Macbook is silent when performing ordinary office tasks and running light productions and editing. But when the CPU usage hits around 25 % in Cubase the fans come on. I don’t hear them while the track is playing but when soloing something I notice it and it drives me insane for some reason. They’re not on like full jet engine but they’re definitely noticeable.
So my question to all you seasoned Macbook producers: how the hell do you put up with that? It’s like after a while you don’t notice it anyone or you just don’t care?
First world problems I know but I’m used to running heavy projects without hearing a thing
