    Not trying to prove anything here, guys, I just think it is interesting.

    My old Mac Pro 2.66 Quad could run 18 Omnisphere instances and then it was done. I have already loaded 30 on the Mini and I probably could do a couple more.

    Here's why:

    Processor Speed: 2.0 GHz Processor Type: Core i7 (I7-2635QM)

    Details: This model is powered by a 32 nm, 64-bit Intel Mobile Core i7 "Sandy Bridge" (I7-2635QM) processor which includes four independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 6 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).

    This system also supports "Turbo Boost 2.0" -- which "automatically increases the speed of the active cores" to improve performance when needed (up to 2.9 GHz for this model) -- and "Hyper Threading" -- which allows the system to recognize eight "virtual cores" or "threads."

    Thanks for sharing the screen shot. Nice processor levels! Seems a number of people are migrating this way for a second computer.

    Does this mean that you're running the mini as your main computer verses the old quad core?

    Are you using logic node setup with the macmini?

    No. With VE Pro it is totally unnecessary.
