I'm looking into getting a new 12-core mac pro when they are released, and run Logic pro as my main DAW. It is my understanding (cant test this) that Logic currently only supports 8 cores with no hyper-threading, meaning that if I get a 12-core mac I would be unable to use 4 of my cores! However, thats were VE pro will hopefully come into play. Is there a way to setup VE pro to use the 4 cores that are not being used by Logic? I know you can set the number of cores VE uses in the preferences, but how does it choose which cores to use?
Also, does VE pro support hyper-threading?
Thanks in advance for the help and reply!
