PT 12 is not the same as PT 12 HD

I have HD, not the light versions.

Since you're going to rackmount it, the Mac Mini in a Sonnet RackMac is a terrific way to do it.


That Sonnet RackMac looks pretty cool.

Temperature ranges.  Do you plan to stay in total climate control.   Computers outside in the south running for festivals also take some special considerations. 


Currently most stuff is indoors, however this is probably something to consider. I would imagine, even if going for the same parts, this would be another reason to get a larger rack computer.

What do you do for events that have high ambient temperature?

I am quickly sensing that perhaps I should not be designing this to be a protools HD rig. Realistically that is an afterthought and should be a different rig anyways.

Thanks for the input!

Matthias, we use the Mac Mini.  We keep it in a 6 space rack with some other stuff, mounted on a rack shelf with slits in the bottom.  I have two fans mounted in the back of the case for drawing heat away from the Mac and the other equipment.  On the same shelf we have a Focusrite  Pro24 for playing back tracks and recording.  Sorry I degrees.  We have never had a problem with the system keeping cool.

Here in the great Midwest we go from 106 in the summer to -10 in the winter and it works every time.
