Too late now. I'd originally intended to keep using Orion for live work, because Cubase takes way too long to load a song, but it has become too unstable with a lot of newer plugins. I think I actually prefer Studio One, now that we've finally found a good replacement for Wasp. It was Wasp that kept us interested in Orion more than anything.AnX wrote: ↑Tue May 11, 2021 7:55 amsolutions: http://forum.synapse-audio.com/viewtopi ... =0#p120022
Possibly but it won't be faster than my dual SSDs. And, interestingly, when I tried to look this up, I discovered that there may be serious problems with M1 Macs and their SSDs. This is just one of many articles on the subject -

This, of course, is just the kind of thing early adopters of anything have to put up with, it's not exclusive to Apple. That said, the kinds of premiums Apple charge should mean they are held to a higher standard but their ardent fans usually fall over themselves to make excuses for them.
GPUs do a lot more than just run monitors these days, they are able to take a lot of load off the CPU for things like drawing application and plugin GUIs and enabling all those cool realtime, animated waveforms and such. I imagine that the M1 is probably pretty good at that stuff, though.So far the weak link in this is graphics, which isn't really a concern to many of us. I run two external 1080p monitors off of a 9 year old MacBook pro here. I'm sure the M1's can do that.
