hello everyone
I am new here (and sorry for my bad english)
recently I borrowed an old macbook pro form my friend
which is 13-inch, Mid 2010
with 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
8 GB ram and 128 GB SSD
I am going to do guitar recording with this old machine ,logic pro x , line6 pod farm 2.5 and EZmix 2 .
So I want to ask is this old macbook good/fast enough for guitar recording ?

Unless you're gonna work with a lot of tracks and a lot of plugins you'll be just fine.
Mind the SSD space though

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I think I need at most 10 tracks and each one use an audio plugin
is this ok?thank you very much !

You'll be fine with three times that and more, unless you're using seriously CPU heavy plugins, such as analog circuit modeling simulators or delays with lotsa feedback.

Since you're at it you may also wanna check out LePou's and Nick Crow's plugins, I think both sound better than EZ mix for most stuff.
And you can change their parameters as you prefer.

I am running a similar setup (the 15 inch though)

No problems. sounds killer! I use Nick Crow and LePou, get them both, they work good for different things.

thanks man ,
but may I ask do you add/build you own drum tracks in to the recording ?
If yes , how you mix it ?
