Some of you know that I also own a music bar besides working at Steinberg. The mixing desk that I normally use to mix the bands is “dying” at the moment, and it just ran out of warrenty (like always). So I had the choice: a new mixing desk, or try something new: build a computer and do live-mixing and recording at the same time. Well, I go the computer way, and want to share how well it works, because we have regular questions regarding this.
The computer is ordered: I5 2500 K, Windows 7 64-bit, 8 Gig Ram, 1 x HDD system, 2 x HDD Raid setup. 2 x MR816 will be used, together with Cubase 6.0.4.
I have not decided yet if I need a controller, but perhaps some of the new CMC’s will be tried at a later stage.
Current status: Waiting for the new system
First time to try out the new system: 6 October
Will keep you posted
