The M1 MacBook Air and iPad Air assist in the creation of a music studio [Setups]

“Remember to always practice safe Sax,” came the obligatory jazz-joke comment.

Redditor madeitinthewild makes beautiful music up in Canada. Or he makes music, anyway. Jazz music. You can tell by the assortment of saxophones next to his M1 MacBook Air- and iPad Air 4-based mini music studio. That, and he said so.

“No way I live on the edge,” replied madeitinthewild, kinda true to his Reddit handle.

Mini music studio production performance
When a commenter about about the MacBook Air’s performance in music production, madeitinthewild noted his MBA is the base model, meaning it has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage via SSD.

“My mba is the base model and I’ve had no issues whatsoever!” he said. “I’m using logic and rarely exceed twenty tracks (mostly jazz music) so it doesn’t even get warm lmao.”

“Logic” refers to Logic Pro, which the commenter also uses. It’s the digital audio workstation (DAW) and MIDI sequencer software for macOS that Apple aquired from a German company in 2002 and still sells in the App Store. The popular, free, more consumer-oriented application GarageBand is built on it.

The commenter mentioned they’d recently traded in an Intel i9-powered MacBook Pro base model for an M1 Mac mini with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD plus an iPad Air running side car.

“I notice the intel based plugins take literally one second to load, where the native ones are instant,” they said. “I’ve noticed my peak CPU usage around 30%.” Those are good performance figures in anyone’s music book. Go, M1 MacBook Air.

Magic Trackpad and Logitech MX Master mouse(s)
Madeitinthewild is another example of a person who happily finds uses for both a Magic Trackpad and a mouse. In his case, the Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse. It looks a lot like the popular MX Master 3 mouse, so a number of commenters mistook it for same. And a lot of users just love the Logitech MX Master series, generally.

“Gotta second the MX Master, great mouse, and for someone who switches between 3 computers – MBA M1, Windows for work and gaming – how quickly it switches between devices, unbeatable.” Get them both, and cheap, too
But some folks worry if they get such a good mouse, they won’t use the Magic Trackpad.

“Just out of curiosity do you find a lot of use for the trackpad with the mx master 3?” asked one Redditor. “Considering getting a mx master 3 but worried it will mean I stop using my track pad.” Madeitinthewild replied with reassurance. He also pointed out the deal folks might get on the older MX Master 2S.

“Ya I use them both (I got them both used for a total of $100 CAD) and that’s an mx master 2s! Still great tho and I use them both with logic, mostly trackpad for web browsing/email, mx for unity,” he said. So he said — basically in Canadian — that he got the Magic Trackpad and the Logitech MX Master 2S mouse for a total of about $78.
