[ddots-l] Re: building a new system from scratch.

It allows you to plug the same monitor, keyboard and mouse 2 PC's at the same time. You can then switch between systems with a keyboard command.

What's a KVM switch?

Cheers

I agree with Dave on this. I only use a laptop for audio when I have too. You could have a second desktop with a KVM switch. You would have to pay double the price for a hi end laptop over the price of a desktop.

I'd recommend purchasing the lap top for your general purpose needs and
re-build or build a new DAW as the desktop. That gives you a full-size
machine that allows more hard drives, better cooling, higher speed, slot
expandability, etc.

Purchase a new laptop as your audio machine only if you have no other
choice.

Hi folks

At present I'm using my regular desktop for recording simply for the sake of
practicality.

However, even though it can copy with most everyday tasks very very well, running sonar with several plugins starts to push it a little too hard for
my liking.

I'm looking at getting a laptop simply for recording.

Another desktop computer wouldn't be practical given the space I have
available.

What kind of specifications should I be looking at given that...

1.  I'll be using sonar 8 eventually with jaws.

2. I want to be using a wide range of plugins, sometimes simaltaniously.

3.  I want to eventually be able to record bass and guitars.

So, how would you do this from the ground up and how much should I be
budgeting for?

I've already got a Tyros 2 that will act as my midi keyboard and an EM UC33
I think it is as a control surface.

So, please be specific in terms of processing speed, memory, sound cards
etc.

Also, where would you recommend I purchase from?

Sorry if that's a lot of questions in one go, but I'd rather get it right
first time.

Cheers
Darren
