Music Production Hackintosh

I endeavoured to create the perfect music production computer that was capable of running OS X, silent operation (for studios without control rooms), easy to operate (post configuration), and IO that would be both backwards compatible and future-proof.

Compatibility: No issues or incompatibilities found.
