Re: New DAW getting built.

I can amend my order in pre-production, there is a 650W Corsair TX650W that will save me 50 quid, what you reckon?

Re: New DAW getting built.

Too small SSD (256 are cheap 512 if you can afford it) Power supply is cheap and too low powered don't skimp on this Motherboard might be bit too much? There's better cooling then the intel Onboard sound who cares The 2 SSD drives at 300gb is good enough for me. The power supply was over £100 alone...

Re: New DAW getting built.

A couple questions: 1) why going 6 core CPU? That's upwards of $1k alone (US price guestimate) 2) 32Gb memory - do you really need that much? If doing a lot of video or CAD/3D perhaps 3) 500W PSU? I would suggest you go for more along the lines of a 650W (Corsair/Antec/etc) Othet than that, when is...

Is Ableton dead?

3 years the current version has been out for and it still crashes when you put it under any type of performance pressure. Key developers have left and formed Bitwig, which looks like the Ableton everybody wants. Still no news on Ableton 9. Is there now a realistic chance this will never be released?...

Having analogue hardware is nice and all that but as far as I can see it is a a pain in the arse as there is no instant recal etc. I also think with today's advances in computer performance the gap between hardware and vsti's etc... is getting smaller. I should add that I have come to the conclusio...
