Comments above from forum members helpful and should be taken to heart.
That said, you have a machine that can do a heckuva lot of stuff, even if it can't
go beyond 10.11.
Do a "needs assessment". What do you need to do with the computer... you mentioned
audio editing, for example. Is there a specific program you want to use, or would
you like suggestions from us regarding freeware and other apps that will enable you
to meet some of your needs?
Also consider that now that folks are moving on to newer Macs with (sigh) "better"
ports like Thunderbolt / USB-C, you may see lots of equipment coming available in
the used market for cheap that will plug in to your "old" machine and give it new
usability without a large investment.
Be specific about what you want to do, how you want or need to do it, and we'll do
our best to point you in the right direction.
There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications
until you visit the forum again.
All the best,
