Can a macbook pro handle this….

Example project load ;

VSTI's : Drums ( BFD ), 1-3 midi ( piano etc ), 2-3 amp & cab sims

Plugins : 2-3 reverbs ( convolution and algo ) , 1 delay, and i use 3rd party eq and compressors on most tracks and tape emu's on groups / master.

Total track count around 16 - 30 inc groups etc ( keeping drum vsti on its own track only i.e. not spread out onto DAW channels )

Thinking of getting a top spec macbook pro for logic pro x but suspect it will struggle with VSTI's in terms of cpu & heat production and therefore lifespan especially without freezing tracks ?

Will the internal 1 tb ssd be ok for OS and audio data ( dual use ) ?
