    My 2012 MacBook Pro is starting to really show it's age, so I've been saving up to get another one, but then a used iMac caught my eye locally and it made me dig into those. I almost never use my MacBook like a laptop, it sits connected to two monitors on my desk and maybe moves once a year...

    https://www.apogeedigital.com/products/jam Apogee just released this new version, which seems really cool. I like that it has a direct monitoring option on such a small device; usually it's only software monitoring, which obviously introduces latency.

    Mac to Windows I swear to god this isn't a troll post. So, I've got a 2015 MacBook Pro 15", which is a fine machine, but I'd like something lighter. My wife is blind as a bat (literally legally blind without her glasses), so I want to give her my 15", and get a snazzy new 13" MBP. The...

    So it seems you cant upgrade from Yosemite to El Captain nowadays unless you previously downloaded it or someone gives you the download. It wants me to skip and upgrade to Sierra. This is for my recording computer and I try not to be on the latest OS for this stuff. So if anyone has the download...

    So my setup is Guitar>Fractal>Mac>GB (or LP). But apparently Macs have horrible sound cards and can't really process the signal from the Fractal. And so my result has been something like this at the 25 second mark and onward of the vid: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/28126484054/...

    This weekend I had a buddy over (flaxfoot on the forum), and we noticed my Mac, although 6 years old, was running way too slow. Fritz opened up the Active Processes screen and noticed I had a few too many, nearing 220. Does anyone know of a good program to clean that up? Should I just run a...

    Stew Mac "Essential Fretting Kit". I bought this a while back when I was doing a lot of guitar repair work and was looking at making a career out of it. A change of profession meant I never used it, beyond opening some of the packets, but nothing has been used. Includes: • Fret Cutter •...

    I'd been using the Antress tape sim on a PC which was OK but useful as a special effect here and there, but I can't use it on a Mac. So, what CAN I use? Freeware or relatively cheap would be preferable, but let's say sub-$200 budget or so.

    I've got a 2012 non-retina MBP with an SSD. I was using it normally the whole evening and it seemed fine. I went to change my desktop and the Finder kept freezing. When I rebooted it, I got the file folder with the question mark in it, and it won't boot. I tried booting with Option held and it...
