The project starts with:
- EXS Sampler instrument
- convolution reverb
It's 84 tracks, and you just activate each track until your system gives a CPU overload.
My two year old MacBook Pro quad core got 82 tracks at 128 buffer, my 2013 Air got 38, and my old 2011 MBP13 with an i5 got 28, again at 128 buffer.
Now, I would never, ever use 38 tracks filled with 38 virtual instruments AND convolution reverb, plus a couple other plugins thrown in, so it's truly amazing this little sub-3 pound laptop is capable of this.
Of course, I'm sure pretty much any modern system using any DAW is similarly capable. After all, it's all the same hardware, and Reaper, Tracktion, etc are all as efficient as Logic.
Now Vince and I have been going back and forth about cool shit that can be done with even an iPad.
It just makes me think that we've got it good technology-wise, and at the same time makes me scratch my head when I see people (not here, really) bitch about "lack of power" on some machines, to this day. What more can you possibly ask for, at least with pro audio?
I love this stuff. I love it just as much as I love playing guitar.
