Hail to the community, hope everyone has a fine year beginning !
So after years of valiant work my old laptop goes to Valhalla - thus I'm looking for a new challenger. Problem is I'm fairly new to computer technics.
The primary aim here is to have a machine running Live 9 with let's say 30 Kontakt tracks with a different H3000 preset on each, some tweaked/sliced Serum here and there, MIDI automations everywhere, and any lag/freeze/sound crunching isn't an option because it's a live performance in front of a crazy yelling crowd (yeah crazy chillers are the most dangerous...).
I've read that for CPU, i5/i7 HQ series would be a must have, so is at least 8GB ram and a SSD.
If possible, a PC would be best for many reasons (paulstretch, some utility softwares, most of my current vst are windows only, .flac,...)
Budget is under 1000€ if possible.
So what pets did you raise?
