So can I expect what?
« on: July 05, 2005, 04:44:38 PM »

One guy moved out of the studio, so I am upgrading...I had a PC built, (P4 with 2gig proc, 90 gig drive for audio), and I am looking at...

Motu interface (for 24 analog i/o)
Glyph 3 bay (gt103)
software (cubase?)
UAD card for plug-ins

So, based on that, how many tracks and plug ins are reasonable to run on a daily basis??  Ballpark, of course, 24? 64? I loves me some eq, comp, verb, etc etc etc. but also loves me some tracks (usually 14-25 on drums, 10-18 for guitar, etc)

I must say my "outdated" system of my mackie d8b & Mdr has NEVER crashed, locked, lost anything, or anything else.  I need more than 24 tracks and need the nonlinear editing (right now I use 24 at at a time, sub mix and record 22 more on v tracks)


Thanks to all

You can expect lots of headaches and downtime. Pops, clicks and crashes galore. Welcome to the new order of the universe!

But seriously, your system is only as good as your narrowest bus. Fast cpu with crappy ram = poor performance. (as an example)

YOU tell us, how many tracks/plugs/fx can you run?
