i'm looking back and forth between the two programs' system requirements and i'm stalled out.
Pro Tools 11.1.2 - 11.2 has these two options for iMac:
|2013 27" iMac (*)|
Model Identifier: 14,2
Core i7 3.5 GHz
|2013 21.5" iMac (*)|
Model Identifier: 14,1
Core i5 2.7 GHz
so i'm thinking of this:
2013 21.5" iMac,
Quad core i5 2.9GHz Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 1GB video memory
1TB ATA (with external 7200RPM FW 800 drives for media)
fusion drives aren't supported by Pro Tools so i'm sticking with the ATA.
will this work with PP CC 2014? i need the upgrade because of a project i'm doing in PP but my normal 9-5 job is in PT so i'll need both to run immediately. thanks!
Wont be the best performance with Adobe but it should work for both Adobe and Pro Tools depending on your audio interface.
thanks eric! i'm running just the software so i don't need an audio interface at all. just curious, what upgrades to that system would you recommend for PP though?
The better graphics option ie 780M for that Imac with the I7. I would also suggest a TB drive instead of Firewire which is higher latency and lower bandwidth for drives.
