This Holiday season, Apple partnered with YouTuber Jonathan Morrison to gift emerging music creators a dream Mac Studio setup that included a Studio Display, Mac Studio, and iPads from Apple and Apogee Symphony Desktop, iLoud Micro Speakers, and more.
In March this year, Apple launched its first affordable external monitor the Studio Display which features a 27-inch 5K Retina display (600 nits brightness and True Tone technology), 12MP 12MP Ultra Wide camera with 122° field of view, and Center Stage support, three mics and six high-fidelity speakers audio system with Hey Siri and Spatial Audio support and more.
The tech giant also introduced a new and powerful desktop computer, Mac Studio with M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips. With advanced processors, up to 128GB memory, and up to 8TB storage, the Mac Studio is an ideal machine for heavy workflows like video editing, support for five external displays, and more.
Thankful creators “feel limitless” with their new dream Mac Studio setup
When Apple shared the idea of gifting new artists a dream Mac Studio setup, Morrison choose creators Ni/Co, a talented couple who produces music and covers of popular songs in their home studio.
The thankful couple felt creative and empowered with their new setup which they say was a huge stepping stone to take their creativity and journey forwards.
What an incredible feeling to feel limitless, a lot of times as creative, maybe it’s an excuse, it’s not you feel like you can’t because of financial barriers. There’s only so much you can do because there is a threshold, there’s a limit.
How the amount of pressure that’s lifted like I can do anything. It makes you want to sit down and do anything. And anything you don’t know, you can figure out because you have to choose to do it and friends that know what they’re doing and thank you for tech support. It’s crazy because when it was all set up, it truly made us feel more creative which is crazy because people make grammy-nominated records off of like their bedroom, in a closet with a booth.
For us this incites so much creativity because the opportunities are endless like we don’t feel professionals still and this is professional. Our gear now has surpassed us and that’s such an inspiring feeling because now we need to catch up. It feels like Christmas.
