New Mac Mini Compatibility with Pro Tools
Apple, in regular fashion, is doing their best to change the way we look at computing, from the outside in. So far, they have achieved this is the software world. You buy an iPod and you aren’t allowed to copy music over like you would with a regular USB drive – you have to use iTunes and you have to do it their way. Even if you don’t like this method, you have no choice so you just get used to it when it happens. Apple also doesn’t use your standard mini USB cable; instead, they opt to use their own 30-pin and lightning connectors, meaning that a generic cable just won’t do.
Now they are making waves with their desktop version computer. Instead of the standard tower with connections for cards and other slots located in the rear of the computer – they have designed an all inclusive device that caters to nobody. This means that if you want to expand your hardware you will have to look for alternative ways of doing so. Avid has already been hard at work designing an external case that will basically house external cards for the system, since the standard case won’t allow this to happen.
