Taking recommendations on beefing things up.
My clients are dying of old age waiting for files to load and save.
I'm dying of old age waiting for plugins to process.
And just this past weekend, my computer started skitzing out on me for trying to record 8 tracks at once. I can't have that happen.
I'm currently running on a Compaq Presario w/ AMD AthlonXP, 1.47 Ghz. around 700 or so MB SyncDRAM, and 160 GB hard drive.
I have four options. Let me know what you think:
* Get a better, souped-up setup and keep the old one around for office work. Please recommend system.
* Upgrade my current system -- please recommend upgrades. Would it help to maximize the current one for audio, etc?
* Buy another one just like the one I have, and use them in tandem. ie - Edit on one while I mix on the other. Cue the other one up to record the next song while the first one saves the first project, etc.
* Fuck the computer route all together.
