i shouldn't have assumed he was wrong or doubted him. he has a high rep. and i am just a youngn outsider. actually his advice will probably help me get a much rawer, less digital, more rock and roll sound. I use a DAW but i wish i didnt have to lol. oh well, just wont edit and leave everything up to the human!
Alright. How much RAM do u have? I'm considering building a pc and dropping down to 8gb with the i5. Will that still be good or do u recommend the i7? Also, do u run a lot of background programs while recording?
Hey man. I see you bragging about your pc sometimes and I wanted your opinion on a pc I'm looking at.
Here's a post I made here.
I've been using my laptop to record stuff. I didn't have recording in mind when I bought my laptop so it doesn't have any super specs. But lately my recordings have been murdering my laptop when I get vst and track heavy. I'm getting serious about recording and I think it's time for me to upgrade to a powerhouse desktop.
I've heard the the Intel i7 is the best route for cpus. So if I get the i7 (quad core or six core?) and probably 10gb of ram will I be good to go. What else is important. I know harddrives are supposed to be 7200 rpm and it would probably be a tb. Should I get 2 harddrives. I've heard solid state drives are great. Do I need hdd and ssd? How much ssd space is ideal? And do you recommend any good brands or websites? I was thinking HP. (no macs btw) What kind of power supply am I looking at?
Yep, just check the box on right of each message, or grouped boxes, and scroll down to the bottom, to 'Selected Messages' dropdown menu. Then you can delete, or move to folder, or download to a saveable file.
Did some edits to the last post I made if you viewed it before; asked for your opnion of the 800 (since it's the same as the 200) and if the monitor volume knob was really worth it compared to the 200.
