I’ve put this in my other post, but thought I would repeat it so it’s easier to find.
If you have a Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro, the last generation before they went unibody GET RID OF IT!!
a) The firewire chip is rubbish and will not play with firewire sound cards
b) They overheat and although the temperature sensor may say 70 degrees, they will still be too hot and will cause stuttering in audio playback.
c) The USB ports only supply 7 Watts of power where they are supposed to provide 13W.
So why are macs so expensive again? I just bought my new PC DAW and suddenly all the problems I was having with my mac have disappeared…
