I am thinking of taking the plunge of getting a new machine for recording, was wondering what you think of this one:
ASUS - ROG G531GT 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 8GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 - 512GB Solid State Drive - Black
Dell - G7 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 8GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 - 256GB Solid State Drive - Licorice Black
These both are a little light on the RAM but I can upgrade that later.
I plan to use a Tascam US-16x08 which I do my band multitracking and for home will probably get an Audient interface as I don’t need more than 2 mic inputs at a time.
I also currently have an Edirol UA-4FX that I use when traveling.
Setup will be Studio One 4 Pro, EZDrummer, some IK synths (Miroslav, etc.), Amplitube, T-Racks and Ozone 8 for mastering.
I guess I am not really locked into Intel or laptop, it could be desktop as I have two aging laptops that can still run 16 track sessions without issues.
Wondering how the Razen compares, the AMD Razen 7 more specifically, in the past I’ve used AMD machines that I’ve built and been very happy with them. I still have my old AM3 workstation running WinXP for pulling archival recording that I did back then.
