I’m building a new system using an old Mac Pro 5.1 (or at least seriously considering it). I’ll probably have a Thunderbolt Mod done the computer just in case I want to upgrade my audio Interface at some time down the road.
I wanted to put the idea out there and see if anyone could come up with any troubleshooting issues that I may not have taken into consideration.
One of reasons for doing this is just finances. Purchasing a new Mac Pro, a new audio interface and new plugins isn’t feasible at the moment.
APPLE MAC PRO 2012 5.1 / 12-Core 2.4 GHZ / 128GB / SM951 SSD / Radeon R9 280X 2TB
Pro Tools 9.04
I’ll be hoping to run a couple of 48″ monitor screens as well.
Any warnings? Tips?
Many thanks in advance!
