I’m not sure about that test… I’ve made it on my two laptops, and restults are:
RAM 12 GB
Video Card NVIDIA GTX960M 4GB
HDD 1TB RPM 5400
Windows 10 64 bits
TEST RESULT- Suitable for realtime audio.
-DELL Studio 1557
Video Card ATI M Radeaon HD 545v 512MB
HDD 250 GB RPM 7200
Windows 7 64 bits
TEST RESULT- Not suitable for realtime audio.
The thing is that on the Lenovo I do get random audio clics, pops and I’ve problems exporting in realtime because I always get processor problems and I have to repeat the export… And sometimes I get random sounds on the final export audio file.
In the Dell I don’t have those problems, I don’t get random audio clics and pops, and I can always export in realtime at the first try… The exported audio file never gets random noises or sounds.
Now, testing Iconica Ensambles on the Lenovo I’ve many problems with the instruments, because some instruments stops playing randomly… I want to try it on the Dell.
I don’t know why is this problems… I’m suspecting it has to do with the HDD, it’s the only thing the Dell has better than the Lenovo because of RPM speed, or does this have to do with the Windows version? Is Windows 7 better for realtime audio?
I don’t know but I tried to do the test to see if I was correct, but I’m surprised by the results… I always have more problems with Lenovo laptop, and I don’t know why.
By the way when I make music I always use a ZOOM R16 Interface in both laptops.
