Topic: best mac for RME interfaces (eg FF800 or others)? & hardware recomm.
I'm using FF800 with Win7 and Cubase - now I got Garageband on my iPhone and it's so handy that I want to switch to Logic X (supposed to be release in Jan on NAMM) - and of course: I need a mac for this.
Which mac can you recommend me for recording? I though of the stationary large ones (iMac 27") or the mac mini (to have it in a different room). Do you have experiences with these? Are they handy / noisy / latency issues / working well along with RME?
I think in general Apple always had more focus on music than Win - but shurely there's no SSD harddisk in it (or maybe that does not affect to much - I'm maximum working on 16 channels)?
These new macs also have Thunderbolt (OK, this is not the question here, since I guess in some years time we'll also see TB interfaces - also of RME).
Last remark on FF800: I had the following hardware issue: after leaving the FW cable in the plug for 2 month, the jack inside (innenbuchse) broke and the soldering lifted of (now the jack is inside & i didn't have a connection - a friend with special soldering equipment fixed it). As an old radio technician i'd recommend to solve this mechanical issue not only by the solderings but rather keep the mechanical stress of the wiring.
Thank you for your recommendations for the mac issue!
