Which Mac spec for Cubase?

Hi there

I want to upgrade my ailing Mac Book Pro (Quad-Core Intel Core i7 with 16gb Mem) which grinds to a halt when I try and use these days for music production with cubase. I’m using up to 20 VST plug in’s and a mixture of Midi and Audio.

Is there a guide on what spec of new Mac Book Pro I should be looking at to gain a seamless experience when producing music?

I’m considering 12-core CPU, 18-core GPU 36GB Unified Memory 512GB SSD Storage¹ (£3000)!

Any thoughts ?

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Any current Mac has enough of power, no worries.

Thanks Martin that’s reassuring to know would I see much difference between an M3 Pro and M3 Max?


I’m sorry, I don’t know about this processors comparison.
