    Default Mac Pro

    Being a musician I don't think you need a new Mac Pro to get it done.
    Musicians are getting it done on iPads and Garage Band.
    Having a new Mac Pro can be a beneficial by being able to run a crazy amount of native plugins and track count would be ridiculous with the power and memory on a new Mac Pro.
    I still use a 2007 IMac running Snow Leopard Protools 9 and Logic 9.
    With a new Mac Pro the sky's the limit. A top of the line iMac with the memory blown out is more than enough.
    But it all depends on what one wants to do if a new Mac Pro is required or needed for music production. I can tell you it won't hurt.

    Define "Need"...

    Define "Musician"...

    ...a guitar player or pianist or drummer may not need a computer at all to be honest, but a producer, DJ or composer may very well need a powerful machine to perform the duties they require of it.

    Is 12 core a necessity? Probably not...but if it makes life easier when mastering music, what does it matter? The machine you are referencing is a luxury to be honest in almost every scenario, so approaching it like that, there's really not a lot of people who "NEED" this machine at all, regardless of field.
