Our friend Lynn Fuston has been torture testing some of the new Mac Minis with various Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis, and deemed them an incredible replacement for previous generations of studio computers.
I’ll throw in a caveat here. We love the mini’s. If you’re just doing lots of audio tracks, and even quite a few plugins, it’s a bang-for-the-buck value proposition that’s hard to deny.
But if you’re a HEAVY Soft Synth user or you love to throw CPU hungry plugins on every track? Yeah. Our in-studio tests haven’t fared as well.
So how about you? What’s YOUR next studio computer going to be?
