we are many who wants to upgrade and buy the new macbook pro quad core so it would be so great if some of you who has already bought one could do a very fast bench test to compare how powerfull they actually are with Cubase 6.
set the latency buffer of the soundcard on 512
import 1 stereo audiofile or as many as you need
insert as many stereo cubase multiband compressors
how many can you have on before the sound gets distorted ?
As an example, here comes what happens with my “old” Macbook pro 2,4ghz core 2 duo / 2gb Ram :
Cubase 6 32 bits (I get the same results with Cubase 5) : 22 multiband compressors with the RME Babyface and 24 with the internal mac sound card which has the double latency time (!??)
Cubase 6 64 bits : 27 multiband compressors with the RME Babyface and 30 with the internal mac sound card (!??)
Thanx a lot in advance for doing the test and sharing your results — I know a lot of people are very interested to read your exepriences —
If anyone is using a Pc Quad Core Notebook under Windows 7, it would be very interesting to also know the results !
