  1. Quickly looked at these. I presume you're telling me to just make a decision and shut up?! Haha. The thing is that I'm deep into a song right now as is and will probbaly make a decision in a few months when I'm financially better off so yeah... Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk Also when you say "figuring out your set up", what do you mean exactly? Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah I mean I'm spending time reading about Mac Mini. And yes, I just want a ridiculously reliable machine and no bs. Luckily at the minute I've got my gf's HP Windows Laptop which is good enough to track what I seem to be primarily doing which is writing on acoustic guitar at this point but yeah... That laptop will suffer with anything more than a few tracks I'm sure so yeah.. I'll probbaly just bite the bullet. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. I've been meaning to hear this. Hearing great things. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. Argh.. Am I being brought round to the apple world? To be fair I just need to do the basics office wise and just super reliable ableton. Dont even game. Maybe it is worth a change. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah I'm really enjoying this. Bass heavy in sections so advise sub or headphones for sure. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah thanks everyone. I think an M1 is like 900- 1000£ + at the higher configuration tho so I suppose the question is why do that if you can get a high end AMD/Intel tower for that price. Suppose it depends on the comparative performance of that chip in the long-run. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. This is out now on bandcamp digital. Was a limited run of vinyl with art print 25 in total but Sam messaged saying it will be in normal shops too via a larger vinyl run. Sounds great to me. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah I don't know man if the whole apple is more reliable argument stands anymore. I think both windows and apple both have histories of OS stuff fucking up and equally even if apple is more reliable in some way from the outset (I do get the reasons for that) but it just seems like if it fucks up mechanically that's going to be more expense and more effort. I suppose it's a big trade off or something isn't it. Enjoying all these views tho so thank you. I've only ever had Windows DAW systems you see so I can't really coment I'm just looking at the bang for buck. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah thanks everyone. I still think the price of an AMD multicore tower say around £600 outstrips something like the refurbished M1 tho. I've never had an apple laptop/PC either. I can certainly see the appeal of course but following my expoence with this laptop breaking etc I think I just want to go with something solid and more reliable you know in terms of upgrades and repair.

  10. Yeah, thanks for comments. I'm still going to go tower I think. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. What I'm finding interesting is that PC Specialist actually has a lack of Ryzen 5 chips in stock. Even been heating about a lack of PC gear in circulation but this is first time I acrually experiencing it from a major distributor. Anyone had any other success with building towers via a UK company? Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah I'm prioritising chip and SSD capacity to see how much I can squeeze for 600£. Trying to sort of future proof it to some extent too you know. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah I'm pretty sure I'll go desktop now. How important is a Ram boost to 32gb over a base offer of 16 re music production versus upping chipset from like a Ryzen amd 3 to a 5/7? Put my rise in budget potentially into increased chipset, ram or larger SSD? Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Sorry to message on my own thread. Is an AMD Ryzen 3 3200g quad core total overkill or worth boosting quote for even newer generation? Been quoted 533£ for a desktop with that as chip versus 579£ for an i3 laptop! Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah I considered asking on Reddit but couldn't find a clear purchase advice one. What's /g/ sorry? Thanks for help everyone. Yeah I have been considering desktop towers too. Do you really get that much more bang for buck then? To be fair, I've got a decent phone and don't really play live so considering laptop more for convenience travel too etc.. Just the obvious first thought innit. Wouldn't go Mac really even though heard good things about their latest tech. Just can't support the price hike. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  16. Hello humans. Did have an i7 (old chip tho) - I think 2.5ghz with a hybrid ssd, windows 10 and 4GB ram. Ran Ableton 11 suite and external gear basically. I'm not a heavy Max user or anything like that. Used Ableton more as an experimental platform and sequencer really to record into and mix etc. I primarily play guitar or and go from there. Found it pretty good overall. Motherboard died and can't be replaced. Gutted. Luckily can recover data off drives but other than that I need a new laptop. Too old to be sorted really. At this stage I'd be interested to see what I'd get comparable spec wise for maybe max £500. Ultimately I just want something reliable with a powerful chip so I don't have to think about CPU load and a decent enough local storage. I don't game or anything like that and I'm quite broke really so I suppose I'd just like advice as to where to look now and what's a good solution. I've not bought a laptop in years so I'm really behind re. technology now and what brands to seriously consider. Cheers and sending good vibes to you all.
  17. Lira 8: Vst made in PD of the Lyra 8. Pay what you want. Map it to midi and drone away: https://gumroad.com/l/lira-8/ Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  18. Appreciate this thread. Always wanted to know where to start. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  19. Need to listen to this again but apart from the more synthy sections towards end of main record I didn't think it was particulary different. But then I suppose that's the point. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  20. Very cool. I've got premium so would be very up for an upgrade. Decent Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  21. Ah I see. That's good. It's not out tho? I'm guessing later this year? Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  22. What's Spotify hifi?! Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  23. Yeah I kinda thought the same but it's like been top on my collection list for ages to get Deloused and seeing as it's been properly remastered I thought it was worth the punt. I'd be interested to hear what you guys think about the difference in remastering from originals to the news if you've got the box sets. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
