It's a minimal set up, but I am actually producing wait for it......melodic/vocal EDM.

I have had an issue with FL Studio skipping (created a thread about looking for a good laptop to produce on), and when I had the opportunity to have this hand me down (in decent shape), I assumed it was going to be really fast since I have seen a lot of producers use macs (even back when this one came out). However, my dad told me that since it was like 5 years old it wouldn't be any faster then the current 4 year old laptop I have. I find that kind of hard to believe.

The basic production I have done so far hasn't skipped. But I haven't really tested it with a lot of channels/vst's yet. Although, it looks like it isn't currently possible to run sylenth on FL Studio on a mac so it may not be as much of an issue anyway. I think Nexus will run though and I don't remember if that slows it down a lot or not.

If you want to breath life in to that Mac, then make sure you add a Samsung SSD.

about 18months ago it was just starting to show signs of slowing down, so i put a Sammy 830 in there with an ICY dock (you need a drivebay converter) and I still have no intention of upgrading any time soon.

It will make a massive difference to your trusty imac and will probably only cost you $100. Bear in mind the Sata 2 buss is only capable of 3gbs as the negotiated link speed so there's no point getting the latest and greatest sata 3 SSD drive.

let me know if you need any help/tips doing it?

Thanks for the tip! So far it is running well, but may get that in the future.

Yeah, I think there needs to be a limit of, like, no more than $/100K worth of gear per post.

Word

Or, create a tax where every picture you post of said gear incurs a 10% fee, made payable to nice guys over 40.

For fucks sake Raphie, that's very serious upgrades.

The AD2015 is one of my favourites of all time. True class A circuitry and the thing is so damn quiet, even when you gain the fuck out of it.

How do you like the HM2 comp?

Hi Raphie!

Got a question.. How you rate dangerous compressor? I know it's on the clean side. Or lets say this: What's you favorite in your setup? I'm trying to decide between the api2500, dangerous, or the nail.. And how do you like dangerous bax? Im just trying to get one of each compressor and eq in hardware form, and can't make up my mind. There are so many amazing units out there.. I'm picking up my PSI A21-M monitors this weekend .. and I guess it's gonna be back to square one. will have to audition the compressors here again.. But just courious.. I know how they sound and all, but just wondering your opinion.. which one you would keep if you could only get one of them? And which one of those fits most toward edm?

Thx

The Dangerous is really clean, the API really thumpy, both are great, if only 1, I would probably choose the dangerous, it just sonds bigger than any clean plugin, the API is great too, but more percussion driven techno tracks, not as much for euphoric trance stuff. The BAX is a good broad strokes EQ easy to dial in overall tone, to rebalance a track, but it's not surgical. Great mixbus combo with the dangerous compressor.
I like the nail for it's tubes it has some edge/dirt which can be nice, for clean I like the dangerous better (also better than the charteroak I sold before. )

@RANN yes the Avalon just sounds expensive, Even when not dialing in EQ, but just engaging it, things start to sound like a Celine Dion track (engineering wise then, not musically ) The BURL does the same thing, just sounds BIG.
I'm actually really impressed with the BUZZ soc (the blue button one) it's really transparant, but liquid, immediately gets that Alexander O'niel, SOSband, Luther vandross smootchy vibe. Optical compression, but in a mixbuss worthy way. Together with the AD 2055 it sounds really high end '80s

It's now easy to mix and match to dial in different vibes.
I'm pretty much done now from a gear perspective, still have some stuff in storage left to sell, once that's sold I might the the BURL DAC as well, but then there is no gas, or WAF (wife acceptance factor) left
Just need to master a lot of tracks. And though the craft comes down to room and skill, I've now got a toolbox that is capable of delivering results only possible at worlds top mastering facilities. It was already not too shabby, but it's now top-notch
