3 monitors on a Mac Pro 8 core

Postby El Professor » Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:04 pm

Anyone know of an easy way to get 3 monitors to work with Cubase (or any software) without using an extra pci video card (my slots are used up). I have an Apple 8 core Mac Pro. Love Hans many monitor setup. I have two swervable View Sonics that I'd like to swing 90 degrees for a 2 page Portrait view of full orchestral scores in Sibelius via rewire and then use my cinema for sequencing window from Cubase. Anyone doing that or have a simple solution?

Hello,
Our MPs have three monitor ports - a dual-link dvi and two display port outputs, all independent. I suppose another graphics card will do it for you.

Can you post a picture or link? thanks

Mine is an older model, so maybe they changed the card.

What is your video card? Maybe I could just replace mine if that'll work.
