While I find it rather arduous at times to get new power supplies, motherboards and CPU’s, as well as to research Chipsets, graphic cards and peripherals; personally I find it rather rewarding when you:
a) meet system requirements, that is by matching hardware to a particular generation of DAW and OS software
b) experience a stable OS that can actually run a DAW such as Cubase, none of this “still supported” operating system, with previous generation software or newer OS on previous generation hardware
c) have enough power to spare for other tasks such as internet and email without interrupting DAW performance
How many here can make the above claims?
I know for a fact that Cubase 7 (7.0.7) is stable, and posts to the contrary are purely the result of user error.
Anyone else who knows how to get their rig humming, please post system specs.
