How Do I Choose a Music Production Computer?

Your music production computer forms the core of your home music studio so you want the best you can afford.

You want keep these simple words in mind when you search for your music production computer...

Bigger, Faster, More!

Got Flow?

Do you feel frustrated with your music production progress at the moment?

Imagine you could get unstuck, break through blocks and make more music, faster.

Check out this course right now:



Bigger CPU...

... which means go for Intel or AMD (to match with your Intel or AMD chipset on the motherboard),  as fast as possible because you want to run multiple effects plug-ins and virtual instruments and CPU plays the key role here.

Multi-core processors now allow you to run more programs at once.

Faster RAM...... translates to a faster computer, faster software operation and faster streaming of audio, so...

... get as much as your motherboard (and pocket) can take!

2 Gig gets you off to a good start, 4 Gig and you start taking off. And you don't stop...

... more RAM! more RAM! Oh, and while we're at it...


More Disk Space...

... with two disks at least to separate your operating system and music production programs from your audio files and your sequencer project files.

Your audio files and music will take up a lot of space.

Can you ever have enough disk space on your recording PC?

Only when you've stopped making music.  And that will never happen!

So get as much as possible.


More inputs and outputs...

... which depends on your motherboard and on your recording sound card or audio interface.

More inputs and outputs means you can plug in more of your beat toys and gadgets,  and allows you to expand your music production computer in future (which you will!).

Yes, these are the bare bone basics, because I tend not to get too technical (yawn), and leave that for the propeller-heads. 80/20 remember?

I'm also not capable to tell you which system would be best for you as this depends on the music you wish to produce and the music software you wish to run.  This is why I try to provide the basic guidelines for you.

It's up to you to research well before you spend your hard-earned money on your choice of music computer because your choices can be costly when you don't plan well.

The best sequence to set up your studio is...

First choose your music making software, then choose a compatible recording sound-card (or audio interface) and then lastly,  choose your music production computer.

Oh,  and one last tip...

You can get much more value and power for your money when you purchase a desktop instead of a laptop for your recording studio and desktops are also easier to fix than laptops.  Get a laptop only when you really need to be mobile and make sure it's a reputable manufacturer you buy from.
