I have a Macbook Air i5 with 8 GB RAM at the moment. I make synth-pop, so I'll often have multiple tracks with Massive X on every project. Even though I usually use 1024 on buffe size, I always have to freeze my tracks when I have more than 3-4 tracks with Massive at once. If I don't, I'll get a System Overload error: "The audio engine was unable to process all required data in time."
Because I have this issue, I want to upgrade to a better computer. I've got my eyes on a MacBook Pro. I need a mac because I use Logic and I want it to be portable. My questions are:
What parameter determines how much processing power a computer have? Will I be able to run multiple (read: 10-15) tracks with Massive X at once with a MacBook Pro? Do any of you have experience with multiple tracks of Massive X on a MacBook Pro?
