This is not helping at all. Recording music doesnt require much powerhouse like editing video. Your article shouldve been about software not hardware to make sense


Try running 80 tracks of audio with 40 plugs at the same time and youll see how much performance is necessary. Not too much mention faster render times.


This article should mention the best system is a custom built PC that way you can assure your getting the highest quality components. Computers manufacturers always skimp on fans, power supplies and memory.


Yeah I agree. If you search for custom DAWs on gearslutz and other forums, you'll see two highly recommended builders (at least for the US): Studiocat and ADK.

I completely agree with you.The properties of the computer given here are suitable for Recording & Editing Music and daily uses.


It's also far, far cheaper to build your own machine. For me, that's been the only way to go.

Rain Computers has a laptop and a few desktops that are specifically configured for audio (and video) production. The livebook (laptop) has gotten some good reviews.


It very much depends on how you make music, friend. If you do make effects digitally on your computer then you need a lot of power. If you record an acoustic guitar and a vocal with no effects, then you don't need power. Don't forget that you are not the only person that reads this.


hey if you know is there any tablets besides ipads that I can plug my guitar into I cant find answers im reaching out to anybody


This is exactly the information that I needed! Thank you so much for this informative article! I appreciate your knowledge and research!


It is pretty frightening that this author doesn't know the difference between a hard drive and RAM.

"The laptop comes with internal memory that varies depending on the model you get; it comes with 4GB, 8GB, or 16B. Of course, if that still isn't enough storage, you can always get an external hard drive."

then later:

" Like the others, it comes with an Intel i7 Core Processor and you can add up to 16GB of DDR3 Memory, or you can opt to get a 256GB SSD."

Yikes! Proofread, or get an editor, or something. That's bad.
