My old iMac’s GPU died on me a few months back and a repair didn’t work out so I took the bank busting decision to order one of the new iMacs recently released, see spec below.
27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display
3.6GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor,
Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz
40GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory
512GB SSD storage
Radeon Pro 580X with 8GB of GDDR5 memory
External 1TB SSD Thunderbolt Drive
I have a few questions if you’ll humour me…
With ‘only’ a 512BG internal SSD drive I decided to do a clean install rather than using Migration Assistant (my old HDD wouldn’t all fit anyway), so I downloaded the latest version of C9 Pro and tried to open a couple of projects. However while all the virtual instruments seemed to load fine a couple of audio tracks were missing… so I searched and ‘found’ them, at least I thought I did, and project loaded ok but playback is not as expected i.e different audio playing where it shouldn’t. I had backed up most of my projects recently using the Cubase feature to gather all the projects’ files together so I just assumed all the files would be collected. I must confess that my naming structure isn’t all it should be and many files are named the same (Audio_04 e.t.c) but surely the back up sorts this? Now I’m at a loss as to why this is happening. Only tried two projects but neither are right. The old iMac wont load up any more so I can’t go back to that…
Any help would be much appreciated.
On a separate note I’m looking for advice on an audio interface to replace my ageing Apogee Duet (FW400).
Recording Bass, guitar and vocals solo so don’t need a lot of I/O but latency is a factor so any help is much appreciated.
I think thunderbolt is the way to go with an eye on the future but am open to all suggestions.
Thanks a million
