Mac Setups: The Mac Pro Workstation of a Musician
This weeks great Mac setup comes to us from Luca D., a musician, who as you may have guessed from looking at the set up picture, uses his Apple gear to create music. Hardware shown includes:
- Mac Pro 4,1 – 2.9GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, ATI HD6870 Video Card
- Dual 24″ HP LA2405 Displays
- UAD 2 Quad PCI-e card
- Motu 828 MKIII Hybrid external sound card
- Apple Extended Keyboard
- MacBook Air 13″ (2011)
- iPhone 4S 32GB
- Novation 61SL MKII Keyboard / MIDI Controller
- Dynaudio B5MA Nearfield Speakers
- Fender Stratocaster
On the software side of things, Luca uses Cubase 5, Halion 4, Guitar Rig 5, and other VST’s. These production setups are a great argument in support of the Mac Pro line, which we all hope will be revived as a professional workhorse again soon.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know the slightest thing about music let alone how to go about making anything with a rhythm, but I do know a sweet Mac setup when I see one and this definitely fit’s the description, what do you think?
You can have your Apple desks & Mac workstations featured here too! Send in a good picture (or a few) along with a short description of the hardware and what you use it for to: firstname.lastname@example.org
