My PC which is an inta audio music pc now several years old is unable to cope with the demands of Cubase 6 and the various sample based virtual intruments I use - especially when layering The Grand SE and Halion symphonic orchestra so it is time for a new computer.
I am wondering which is best to save up for - an imac or a dedicated music pc. Mac followers always go on about how good they are for music but I get the impression that you need loads of RAM when layering up lots of sample based virtual instruments and the macs I have seen on line don’t seem to be particularly well endowed with RAM. So I wonder are macs really better? especially given the price tag?
