i’m new to the Forum (first post) and i’ve read as much as i can find on the Forum and Steinberg website before posting. this has however, left me with a couple of queries, together with a wish to introduce myself
back story >>>
A friend kindly discovered an issue with my laptop’s performance on the weekend (appears to be terminal and/or a mystery - pending a format and reinstall) which is making it rather slow and retarded (even more so than usual).
i’ve decided to take it as an ideal opportunity to upgrade and as such will be building my own desktop beast, primarily for audio production purposes. this will be my first build ever, and i’m certainly excited and feel appreciative of the opportunity presented.
similarly, i’ve also decided to leave Reason and use CuBase exclusively for my production (excepting any Rewire uses), as i’ve slowly been using CuBase more and more.
my question is, can anyone recommend an appropriate motherboard? or will it not matter?
i’ll be going 64-bit, i5 Intel CPU.
also, any other recommendations? (i kinda want to get this right-first-time )
ummm, yeah…an interesting weekend
