Comments about Apple Complete Recording Studio with Mac Mini v6:

I never thought i would like màcs, since i always had a hard tìme with them. But now I love this one. It's the best computer for editing music and voice overs I have learned so much already just by watching videos LOTS OF THEM. I also asked questions. I do think that you can't even get this computer for this price and then all the software to. My son went to a film school and they got a mac book with all the editing software plus extra space, it was a 5k computer lap top, I think this one is better then his.

When people give negative reviews on a product without trying to learn first.
Those are the people that might make things up to get free software or something. They need to learn and watch videos as well as making calls to the right places before they write a bad review.

Comments about Apple Complete Recording Studio with Mac Mini v6:

First, let me say that there's nothing more annoying than reading reviews without punctuation and that ramble about a "lack of service" that usually isn't provided when making computer/software purchases (unless bought separately).

Secondly, let me say how much I enjoy this AWESOME recording package, and how well the components all work together. This is A LOT of equipment for the money. Just the Mac Mini alone would cost as much as the total package price!

There is a bit of a learning curve when switching from Windows to Mac, but it's so simple to find videos and online resources by searching the web. Nobody should have a problem that can't be fixed (unless the hardware is faulty). Macs are so reliable that I decided I should purchase a dedicated one just for my recording needs since I already own a laptop, desktop, iPad, iPhone, etc. I am glad that I could set up this unit in my recording section of my music room to sit down and focus strictly on playing, recording and where no other distractions could interfere with my creative processes.

Many will want to use this computer for email, web browsing, etc, and the Mac Mini can also serve as a media center to deliver video to TVs and other computers. That's often why they are purchased. The small footprint is deceptive to the power and content in that little box! While I'd recommend purchasing a Apple Keyboard and Mouse, the one that comes with this package will suit most people fine. I am an Apple "person" and am used to the touch and feel of their keyboards, etc.

The recording interface is super simply to use -- literally plug and play. There will be some settings that need to be selected in Garage Band and other DAWs that come with this computer, but it's very self-explanitory. Seriously, you just need to plug everything in, select the inputs the the software to get up and running.

I love this package and am so happy that I added it to my creative toolbox!

Question can you actually record out of the box?

By Dustin

from North Platte NE

Comments about Apple Complete Recording Studio with Mac Mini v6:

I got this product thinking yes i could get one and that would be great for a recording studio the only draw back is trying to get a hold of someone for support from amd or pro tools and no support that and i don't think anyone watches what what happens to music software when you use this really if the was a solution to the problem of the record button flashing why did it not tell me instead you have to read the files stored on the downloaded software that and download a list of support software for this system to work i don't think they thought the intellegence side to this when they made it also freezes programs when you try to switch out of programs that and i can't get this mega backup to delete keeps showing up 2 to 3 months ago i got this and its still no one called me or when't on a live call to help me from apple don't know if they care that theres no support for this product when you call them.
