What you need to know
- Audio pro Neil Parfitt has a new Mac Pro.
- He's been putting it through its paces with Ensemble Pro, Logic Pro, and Pro Tools.
- The results are pretty impressive.
We've been told over and over again how over-powered Mac Pro is for most people. And that's absolutely the case. But if you're someone who can make use of all that grunt you can rarely do better than Apple's most costly Mac. And audio pro Neil Parfitt is one of those people.
He's been sharing his Mac Pro story via YouTube with a new video posted recently. In his latest outing, he shows us how his new Mac Pro – rack-mounted, no less – is replacing two older Mac Pros and making his workflow...work.
Parfitt's old setup involved having two 2013 Mac Pro machines running different apps and hardware just to get the job done, Now, all of that is handled in a single 2019 Mac Pro thanks to the extra oomph it has, but also the expandability as well.
In the new video Parfitt takes us through a spot of composition work for a cartoon and as someone who has no idea how to make music anywhere, let alone on a computer, it's super impressive. I'd heartily recommend watching the video to see what Mac Pro is capable of. Even if one would be overkill for your own work and workflows.
