iMac Pro 10-core or 14-core for DAW/software synths and 1080p streaming simultaneously?
I'm thinking of what would be the best upgrade from my current 2013 6-core Mac Pro, and my question is whether a 10-core iMac Pro would be sufficient for both running Ableton Live and other DAWs as well as streaming in 1080p at the same time.
(When I tried 1080p streaming and Ableton at the same time on my current system, I got performance warnings from mimoLive.)
Would 10 cores (depending on the DAW load) be enough, or would I need 14 or 18 cores?
I have a MOTU 624 which has a mixing engine to mix/route the audio from my external synthesizers and the DAW, so mimoLive would just be handling streaming and monitor mixes.
Thanks in advance!
