Mac N PC

I have a 2018 MB pro best cpu w 32gb and a pc I built with a i7 4790 16gb desktop.

What I have experienced is this - no matter how deep I go to try and find why my buffer settings have to be so high with the PC with the same amount of plugins I can never run lower than 1024 buffer at 96khz with a bunch of massive x and kontakt library instances.

With my MacBook Pro I can run at 128buffer with no dropouts.

I’m not saying this is a fair comparison. But when I choose a machine to compose with I leave it to the MacBook Pro.

Because of this experience, I do believe apple integrates their hardware more efficiently with the software ecosystem - and they had better be able to do better than I as I’m no IT guy.
