Hi to all
My existing system is based on I7 8700k with 6 ssd’s and 2 M2. An overall good system which gives me the ability to reach up to 30 tracks at 128 samples latency (Rme ff802at 48khz - cubase 10.5 pro - win10 pro) without any issues. If I load more than 30 tracks (all Vsl, Kontakt, Ewql, toontrack sd3 ets), I need to increase the buffer at 256 or freeze tracks.
the problem is that I don’t like to freeze tracks to save resources. I prefer to go till final mix with midi tracks so I can make changes whenever like to, and of course latency in pin in the …
So I need more processing power.
Finally I collected my budget (around 1500 euros) and after some days of research I have come down to 2 alternatives.
Keep my existing pc and use it as a server loading there all my vst’s through VIENNA ENSEMBLE PRO 7 and building a second i9-9900k for my Daw.
Sell my existing cpu/mobo bundle and build an amd ryzen 9 3950x based system with all existing ssd’s.
results I want to achieve is simple. to work with around 80 tracks at 128 samples max with 0 issues.
I know that the secure way is the first choice but the power of Amd intrigues me. But, I am not that expert and I can’t predict which alternative will work better for my needs.
So please, I would appreciate your opinion especially from whom have experience with similar workflow and pc’s and general knowledge on Pc things.
Thank you and sorry for my bad English
