    Hey man,!it's me again. When I saw the "tabletop cables" video I thought, why doesn't he have an Octo card?" Glad to see that you do. That's a lot of RME stuff! No Avid HD Madi for you? It's a pity that the Apple factory would deliver your computer with Mojave pre-installed instead of Catalina ; I'm holding off on Catalina for the same reasons as yourself. Mojave has been fine for me. Thanks for posting!👍

    I love how people were so quick to call you "mcdonalds pro" when they could've very easily googled your name and saw you were the one that actually composed the music for a lot of our childhoods with the soundtrack to bakugan.

    Seems that the daughterboard connected with IDC ribbon cable blocks one of the pci express slots, isn't it possible to move it to the bracket without pci-e slot and put back an IO card?

    For the people who don't get music production, this guy scores things, and uses software/ hardware standard to that industry.
    On the other hand, you basically only need a laptop to produce an album these days.

    Neil Parfitt thank you for your video!
    Do you had problems to config the raid for the “Amfeltec 4-Slot PCIe M.2 SSD Quad Slot” in the Mac Pro?

    Would you recommend the adapter?

    @3:28 Neil there are a few options here – What speed throughput do you need? If you can get away with 10/20Gb there are magnetic breakaway cables (ala MagSafe) that might work for you. Just search on Amazon. If you need the full beans 40Gb, you're SOL on angled cables AKAIK.

    the bad decision you made was to use a Mac to start with?

    @
    Neil Parfitt 3:39 change out an M.2? The Mac Pro is not using M.2 storage (it's a proprietary connector), and worse, it's DRMed, meaning you can't buy it from somewhere else and install it into your Mac, it's paired to the motherboard; you can only install M.2 via a PCIe adapter, but it sounds like you used most or all of them, so you will be out of luck there I'm afraid

    Good afternoon

    Could you tell me what Brands and models of these video capture cards are installed in your Mac Pro rack.

    Interesting. All of the IO boards and connectivity required to handle the the inputs and outputs for your profession; is Linux not a viable option for you?

    I just wonder why the built-in storage is not usable for you? Is there speed or space limitation, or perhaps a data recovery issue?

    Wow Neil! Thanks for these vids. You are blazing a trail for all of us.
    I’m gonna rock my cheese grater for a while longer but it’s great to see the application to a screen composer type of setup.
    I’m also so happy that I managed to skip the entire trash can generation of machines…

    Good got dude, I bet the price for this machine is not even 1/4 of what you have spent on all other gear.

    Honestly, it blows my mind that you need this kind of gear for music production. Is it mostly for sound signal cleaning and for channeling multiple audio sources? Just curious. I’m no stranger to niche computing needs. I use Linux as my daily driver by necessity, after all.

    thanks for the deep dive…don't understand any of the sound engineer technobabble…but still really interesting to see this perspective on hardware. I hope Apple watches your stuff carefully and adjusts to better match the pro users they are actually targeting.

    It's educational to see real-world use. But do replace that power strip on the floor with a proper PDU – power distribution unit. This will reduce the trip hazard and make it less likely you will brush against those vulnerable Thunderbolt ports.

    Wait are you not using the Storage provided by Apple since you have a sys drive on one of m2 PCIe expansion card? Are you worried about wattage issues when you upgrade to your new Graphics card?

    I thought switching to a Behringer UMC1820 with an ADAT expander was a lot of work. I'll not complain about it again.

    Hi Neil, Nice that you put your DAW pro's and cons online for all of us. I am a big fan of the integration you could make with so much PCI-ex slots for all your cards. I work with Pyramix and have also a full set of slots in my DAW. What's your use for the RME Madi cards though? Can't you bring in large amount of MADI streams through your newly aquired DAD/Avid mtrix? Keep pushing, cheers from the Netherlands.

    What speakers are you using? Asking from an audiophile-ish curiosity stand point. Always wanted to know what speakers audio professionals use. Thanks.

    How do you deal with the problem of dust in and outside your hardware? Are you in a sort of clean room environment?

    Really impressed with the audio work you're doing, saw the "Why I use macs" video and totally understand. I am a developer and I use macs for similar reasons, I can't interrupt work to learn new systems, and the new computer each time is "the cost of doing business". My only question is just what you plan to do when you will inevitably need more PCI-E or other types of expansion? You've fully populated the machine from the day you got it, it's a shame they didn't have a few more slots for you in there…

    Someone just copied this video completely and posted it to their own account pretending to be you. Wish I could add a photo here. Their user name is in Japanese I think so I can't type it. It was posted 15 hours ago and has 27 views so far but don't like seeing other people profit from your videos.

    Do you do all your work on internal drives? I'm a sound editor in tv / film post still running a 2012 mac pro 12 core. I just have a hard time justifying switching all my external Glyph studio drives to internals or buying thunderbolt drives for all my projects and SFX libraries. Most projects I get from the studio also come with a rental drive. The 2012 mac pro and trash can just has so much more IO. I run a Motu 828es and Avid S1 controller.

    I will admit I didn't understand a lot of it, but I am blown away at the way it has been loaded with real Pro Gear.
