I've been playing with the idea of making a hackintosh for work(music production) for a while now. My 4 year old macbook pro is starting to slow down on me when I'm working with bigger music files and I'd rather just have a dedicated computer for beat making and music editing and mixing anyway...
After making some research and with the intel from @Jamesbond007 I got the global idea for my build.
GC-Alpine RIDGE Pcie thunderbolt
Intel Core Kabylake i7-7700K
AMD 5770 or GTX1050 video card
Corsair H60 cooling fan.
Ballistix Sport LT 32Go Kit
Corsair PSU CS550M...
I think it's time for an upgrade. I've been a happy owner of Hacki since 2013. It never left me hanging but now I'm starting to work with bigger soundlibraries and I can't expand the ram so I thought it'd be a good time to upgrade the whole system. Actually to build a new and more...
My friend (the geek) & I will be building a pc workstation for Music Production Only and of course the casual youtube, Facebook, etc. No games.
But I used mac's my whole life, but find them too expensive tbh. My question are:
Is it complicated to build a hackintosh?
Is it stable...
Hi everyone! I've come to the conclusion that building a hackintosh is the right choice for me. I'm only gonna use ios for music production via logic pro x, and windows will be used for everything else (mostly gaming).
First of i wonder if this is a good idea to begin with.
If yes, this is the...
I built an Hackintosh with the following items:

- Intel i7-6700K
- Corsair H60 Water Cooler
- 16GB RAM Crucial Ballistix Sport
- 250GB SSD Samsung Evo 850
- Corsair CS550M 550W
No Graphics Card for now! I will buy one later!
I followed all the guides...
I had a windows based desktop to work my music projects (ableton) but it's very slow and old so i need a new system.
I already own a macbook pro 13'' mid 2012 for my dj sets and recently i use it for music production (due to damaged desktop).
I fell in love with the Logic X so i want to...
I am looking to build a hackintosh pro for music production. Currently considering the below configuration.
Processor: Intel i7-7700K
Cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2 Extreme
MoBo: ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero LGA1151
Graphics: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB
I am currently trying to build my first Hackintosh. I want it to have 2 SSDs, each one deditated for it's own OS (so, a PC and a MAC in the same machine).
I want to be able to do music production, as well a using it for gaming. So far I have been doing my music production...
completely new to the Hackintosh commuinty so I am completely overwhelmed by the boat load of information there is and so I would like some very specific answers to see if my system would be compatible and viable as a hackintosh build.
So the story is back in 2012 when I was 16 I...
It all started after I added THUNDERBOLTEx Dual II to my z87 deluxe motherboard. Before that, my hackintosh booted great every time. But now it fails to boot more times than not. On the rare occasion that it does boot, the thunderbolt works perfectly by the way.
I don't want to give up my...
Hi guys, hoping to start my first ever build soon and looking for some advice.
Currently running a 2013 Retina Macbook Pro with these specs:
CPU: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
RAM: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
GPU: Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB
Storage: 500GB SSD
I am new to Hackintosh and I will soon order my very first setup. I am an music production entusiast, doing some webdesign jobs and will maybe edit a couple of lighter videos in the future! I don't play games often, but I would like to have the ability in the future as well.
So, I built myself my first PC a few weeks ago and I found out that I actually really prefer Apple's OS and wanted to build a Hackintosh.
I mostly use my computer for producing music (no gaming).
My current build is the following :
- Motherboard : MSI X99A Raider
- CPU : Intel i5-6400...
Hi. I am a long time reader, but have not posted much (if any).
Anyway, I've been searching long an hard for any info on Aggregate Devices. I cannot for the life of me get the Aggregate Devices to work on any of my hackintoshes. The devices (a saffire 6 usb and Digitech RP250) both work with...
Hi! I already got my Hackintosh to work around two years ago and now the need arises for a thunderbolt 1 port. I really need suggestions because I can't find solutions to the problem I have on the forums.
Should I just buy a new Mobo? If thats the case what mobo would be recommended that would...
Im building my first CustoMac Pro for music production. Really appreciate it if someone can help me with any compatibility issues I might run into from what's in my list or perhaps maybe even something else around the same budget that will optimize performance. I'm sorry if the names...
This is fantastic site and forums. Been here for a few last days, checked buyer's guide numerous times but never been here on forums before I bought my parts so it is already too late for advice ;p. Anyway this is my first build, parts are already on their way to me so anything I can ask are...
I'm looking for some opinions on this X99 hackintosh build that I would like to overclock to the highest and safest level and also keep the noise level to a minimum. This will be used for music production only i.e running Ableton/Logic X and lots of Vsti's and samples etc...
Also I plan on...
Hi everyone! I was wondering if this build was going to be problematic or not and I am sure you all know more about this than I do :) also I was wondering if I was going to need ethernet capability would I need to purchase a card and if I did need to would it fit? I will be using this build for...
