Mac Setup: DJ & Music Producer Workstation with Dual iMacs
This weeks featured Mac setup comes to us from Pat B., a professional DJ and music producer in Belgium who has a workstation that not only looks great, but it’s full of great hardware as well. Let’s jump to it and learn a bit more about this Mac setup:
What Apple hardware makes up your Mac setup?
- iMac 27″ (2011) – 2.7GHz Core i5 CPU with 16GB RAM
- iMac 27″ (2010) – Used as a second screen
- iPad 2
I’m using a 2010 iMac as a second screen. This was our internet and administration computer but lately we are only using iPhones & iPads for that. So I thought it would be a nice idea to use this as my second screen.
I’m also using an iPad 2 for controls, and some audio equipment like a keyboard and controller.
What do you use your Mac setup for?
I’m a full time music producer / DJ. I also make small videos in Final Cut Pro X and make artwork in Adobe Photoshop. But most of the time I’m creating beats!
Which apps do you use most often on Mac and iOS?
On the iMac it’s Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Photoshop, and Cubase for music production.
On iPad and iPhone, it’s most definitely Dropbox! And I love Instagram too!
Do you have any general tips or advice for setting up a great workstation like this?
Invest some time in making your workplace 100% to your liking. Get rid of nasty wires, create a nice lighting and organize your computer so it’s running maximum! I love sitting here in my studio!
