Hi,

I´m considering buying a new Mac Pro 2,4 Quad (8-core) along with the Full Package Vienna Samples. If I fill it with RAM to maximum, possibly running the library from 2 SSD´s in RAID, will this be powerful enough without a slave computer?

I work in Sibelius 7 and Pro Tools 9 with VE Pro 5.

I´m considering Vienna Suite, is this software very demanding on CPU / RAM?

Thanks,

Henrik

This will depends on how many tracks you play and how complex are your tracks

Hi Cyril,

as filmcomposer my tracks are in many cases full orchestra, but often around 24 stems. Fairly complex, meaning that I write very detailed in terms of articulation. Hence, each stem will change patch once or twice every bar on average.

Cheers,

Hi Cyril,

I have now been shopping!
Here's what I went for:
MacPro 8-core 2.4
2x 480 Gb 6g SSD in RAID 0(stripe)
120Gb 6g SSD System Disk
48 Gb RAM
Vsl Super Package Full

Regarding MIR: I will demo it and see if it runs well, I have an older MacPro dual core that I'll try on network. 

I will get everything next week and will let you know how it plays!

Cheers from Oslo,

Henrik

Hello Henrik

Wow !

Did you visit a bank ? Wink

You forgot to buy a SATA III 6Gb/s card to put your raid 0 of ssd

It is good that you got 48 GB on my configuration with 24 GB, I am a bit short of memory as after a while my swap file is 1.74 gb

Best

Cyril

Yes, I´ll be eating beans only this year...

SATA III 6Gb/s card - you mean the brackets/adapters to put the SSDs in?
