Apple sets new standards with the iMac Pro – at least as far as performance is concerned.
The iMac Pro is prepared for extensive audio projects, music video editing in 4K and 8K, for complex 3D rendering and the creation of VR simulations.
Visually, the iMac Pro comes in Space Gray with an 27 inch Retina 5K display.
In addition, there is a mini-jack headphone jack and an SDXC slot. For appealing sound to provide the internal stereo speakers.
Fittingly, Apple has announced also an update for their music production flagship software Logic Pro X.
The update to the professional music production software provides performance enhancements to the iMac Pro, including support for up to 18 processor cores (36 threads) to handle even the most demanding projects with high performance.
Compared to the predecessor model, the new iMac Pro should be able to calculate more than twelve times as many plugins in a DAW in real time – see the table below.
Comprehensive multi-track sessions should be able to be exported almost five times faster.
Sculpture and Amp Designer have also been optimized for the iMac Pro and are now expected to deliver up to twelve times higher performance.
In addition, the new version of Logic Pro X is now more stable, numerous bug fixes including editing, plug-ins, accessibility, user interface, export, and MIDI.
In addition, there were some adjustments to macOS High Sierra (the creation of backups now works under the new operating system) and the file system APFS.
A listing of the most important changes in Logic Pro X can be found on Apple’s web page – link below.
The system requirements remained unchanged – Logic Pro X runs from OS X El Capitan.
The application costs 229.99 euros, the update from 10.x is free.
Here’s how fast Logic Pro X will really be on the new iMac Pro, compared to previous versions of Mac computers.
iMac Pro 8-core and 10-core models start at $4,999 and $5,799 respectively.
The average consumer does not need the iMac Pro. But if you are a professional musician (or you want to become one) and you are dealing with complex production projects, musical or/and video productions then iMac Pro can be the best choice for your music production activity.
