New Apple MBP

Good day,

can anyone confirm the compatibility of Pyramix Native with the new, 2016 Mac Book Pro (13")? I am not at all convinced by the paper-esque keyboard of the new MBP, neither do I like the limited interface connectivity. But it is hard to find 2015 Retina, of which I understand that they are compatible. And there is simply the good feeling to buy the latest model for this huge amount of money. Thanks for any input!

While many here are running Pyramix successfully under Windows 10, it is not officially supported by Merging as yet. As I understand it, the version of Bootcamp that is available for new Macs is set up to support Win10 only (and all that that entails). The other thing to consider is whether or not you will have to go through some chain of adapters to attach your audio interface, whatever that may be.

If it were me, I'd be looking for a refurbished machine from a few years ago (2011 or 2012) - more connection options, and compatibility with Win7 or 8, but I do understand the attraction of getting a brand new machine.

Many thanks, Frank!

That's valuable information, I didn't think of the problematic compatibility issue with the latest Bootcamp version, Win 10 and PMX. Actually, I do have a 2012 MBP, but I feel the horse is getting lame (minor and major hardware problems), the time might be come to shoot it. As said, I'm not even a big fan of the new MBP models, but, well, at least they are quite sexy.

Seems best to look for the 13" 2015 Retina version.

Many big thanks,
