Hi - I need to buy a definitely-not-very-powerful PC for lightweight home use - internet, browsing, maybe some light spreadsheet work, ,pdf, etc.
I’d also love it could run my Cubase 7 (about to upgrade to 7.5.10) in a very lightweight sort of way as well, at most to play a backing track while recording a single audio line, without interruptions. Or do some editing on headphones. Or getting greedy, some VariAudio use?
I know about thesycon.com 's DPC latency checker. If I were to bring that to my big box store on a thumb drive and get good scores (all green), would that be all I need to do? Or is there more I need to check out?
Again, just to emphasize, this would not be my main DAW, and I’d like to buy something fairly inexpensive. But if I’m going to buy a computer anyway, it’d be nice to have it do some light double duty, right?
Thanks for any suggestions!
