Edit: The best improvement came from using the Large buffer. Changing the latency up or down had little to no effect.
Don't worry Syntonica, I was making do with my 2008 MBP prior. Up until a few years back that still did me for what I was doing in terms of composing (I woodshedded for a while) - it's still a useable machine live, just not for the next projects. This MBP will see me for years yet (hence the 1TB drive). That's the only reason I was willing to spring for this obscene price as a non-professional. I now have at least 6 Macs sitting around from my plus through 3 laptops. This had better last ... and hopefully without all the repairs I needed for the last one
