96K Computer Requirements

    I have never run a session above 24/48 mainly because of hardware limitations. While the real world benefits of 96K can be dabated I would like to give it a try. So here is my set up

    2011 Imac 3.4 ghz I7 16 GB Ram
    Logic Studio 9 64 bit
    Internal HDD for booting and apps
    External FW 800 drive for sessions
    External FW 800 drive for samples

    (getting a thunderbolt external when available to replace one of the fw 800 drives)

    Do you think this would be able to handle an average sized session (20 audio tracks/Some Instrument tracks with VI's/Some pluggins etc) at 96K without any problem. Basically I am wondering what kind of setup people who are recrding and mixing at 96K have and roughly how many audio tracks and VI's they can have together with that setup.

    Thanks

    Your system should be just fine for double sample rate sessions. I have run projects on my 2007 original 8 Core Mac Pro, with 60 - 70 Audio tracks, some intruments and plenty of Plugins - mostly Native from Logic, Waves, Audioease, Sonalksis, Sonnox, PSP, NI, U-He and more, along with some UAD and Powercore instances. It works great.

    If you want to test, just copy and then SRC some of your current 44.1 or 48 kHz sessions up to 88.2 or 96 kHz and see how they then run.

    kind regards
