Default I know I'm small potatoes but...

But I still like cool sounds. I want to subscribe to CCPlus. Are there ANY libraries I will be able to use? I only have a 2011 15.5" macbook pro.osx 10.12. 2 GHz Intel Core i7. 16 GB RAM. 1 FireWire port. 1 thunderbolt port. 2 2.0 USB ports. 1 and 2 TB 7200rpm ext drives. I score to picture in logic 10. My projects get about 20-30 tracks deep. Thank you.

I was on the exact same specs for a while (except 10.6.8 then 10.9.5)

It's possible but it just takes appropriate planning in what patches you are going to use. For instance, don't expect to use the giant "powerful system legato" patches from Hollywood Strings on for all the sections or using a ton of the extra mics

Thank you. I was skeptical because even the Gold Drive requires USB 3.0 or am I missing something? Sorry, I'm more of a musician than computer wiz.
