    Omnisphere: will my MBP 13" run it?

    Hi!

    A couple of weeks ago I bought my first Mac, a MacBook Pro 13" (2.66 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HDD @ 5400 rpm). I love it, and it runs my favorite apps fine (Record, Reason and Live).

    My question now is, how (if at all) will it run Omnisphere?

    It would be great to know what experinces Omnisphere users with similar hardware have.

    Thanks.

    Oh yeah...that runs Omnisphere great. :-)

    Thanks for your reply, that sounds great! I was under the impression that a 2.66 GHz Core2Duo was a bit on the lower side for Omnisphere to run well.

    I think you just sold another Omnisphere license, Eric.

    Thanks again!

    I've used that combo and it works very well with Omnisphere.

    Performance gets even better of course with 8gb RAM and faster 7200 HDs or SSDs....but the 5400 will work fine.

    Eric, so would there be a valuable improvement to go with 8GB overs 4GB. I would rather look at doing a memory upgrade before doing any HD upgrade.
    Secondly, would they run better if I simply added a Firewire 800 external drive for the content- leaving the 5400RPM internal drive for OS/Host?

    Sure....mainly more headroom for other things.

    Sure, that works fine too. (external 7200 or SSD)

    Internal is just more convenient for the laptop approach of course.
