iMac CPU upgrade for ProTools
I’m running the latest version of protools on a 2011 iMac 3.7 i5 processor, 16 MB RAM, original 1TB HDD.
Errors were fairly frequent when running previous versions of protools, but with the latest version I’m getting CPU errors almost every time I work with projects that involve moderate processing on 5 or so tracks.
I’m contemplating getting the CPU upgraded but before I do, was wondering if (1) anyone has had similar experience with the newer version of pro tools on an older iMac, and (2) does anyone have a view as to whether there is a compatible CPU to swap in that woul d make a meaningful difference?
Thanks to all in advance for any suggestions.
