I just bought a new laptop for the purpose of recording music, as well as using for general purpose, everyday internet stuff.
The laptop is an i7-6700HQ, with 16 GB of RAM, a 256 GB SSD and a 1 TB 5400 rpm HDD.
I haven't bought a recording interface yet (I'll be asking you guys and girls about your recommendations on that topic soon) but I want to set up my laptop to be efficient and fully functional when it comes time to begin recording. I understand there's things that can be done to optimize computers to make for a smoother, less problematic recording experience.
Can you help me with a few tips on organizing my PC, getting rid of any bloatware or anything else that would improve my laptop's performance?
