The best computers for music recording. I
have one brand, and it is Macintosh. And really, the stronger the computer the better. Macintosh
is coming out with Quad-Four processors, that means four processors in a computer all running
at a couple of gigahertz per, unbelievable power. RAM is a big situation. Two gigabytes,
four gigabytes, it is getting to the point that you can get sixteen gigabytes of RAM.
The more the better. Total drives, storage drives you want as much storage space as you
want if you are doing a lot of projects, if you are busy, if you are doing a whole record.
I think it is also important to note that anything that you record at any time needs
to be backed up. It needs to be in two or three different places. If you record something
at night, you know before the next session, everything should be backed up to another
drive separate. So if the tornado comes, if the flood comes, if the hurricane comes, if
the earthquake comes, depending on your region, fires come, that you have it in two different
spots, and should that act of God take one copy away from you, you have another, and
you have not wasted your time, you have not wasted your money. Backing up is huge, hitting
save after every take when you are recording things is huge as well. And honestly, I would
not do anything on anything other than a Mac.
