Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

Got an HP dv7, older Core2Duo which isnt great but seems to run a fair amount of VST's quite well! Thinking of moving to a dedicated desktop system though for that extra speed, plus my laptops bunged up with all sorts of internet rubbish like most people's I imagine!
The bonus with the laptop is I can have that perched on the laptop stand to the side of me with the HDMI connected to my larger monitor so I've got dual screens to work with (Ableton sort out support with this FFS!). Despite the reports...HP's been realiable for the last year and a half (Touch wood)

In my opinion, you can pimp a normal laptop with less than 1000 dollars...

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I really want a Macbook Pro. no laptop right now, just my desktop.

A huge iMac would be so sick though with a clean area to work. but no portability..can't choose.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

Sony VAIO.. 15.5" Full HD.. Bluray ROM.. 2x2.6GHZ etc etc.. Works like a charm! I build my own computers as well, but only desktops. The last one I built isn't quite a smooth as the VAIO, but it's also a few years old now.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I have yet to reach the limit of the VSTs I can use btw.. Been up around 25-30 heavy softsynths like Sytrus and Collosus, just to see.

That´s kind of ridiculous. Buying a pricey laptop just for people to think "Hey, there goes a Mac users on his way to starbucks!".

I heard that when a Mac crashes, you can´t repair it on your own...

2010 13" MacBook Pro

I love it, Logic is the best reason to own a Mac. The tape delay plug-in that comes with it is ace.

only thing about the laptop itself is that the webcam stopped working and I tried reinstalling the drivers to no avail, so I have an old eyetoy from my ps2 that works as a webcam, although I never really need a webcam.

It never overheats or anything, but I have had bluescreens in the past, I don't think those have anything to do with it being a Sony though

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I had two different laptops I used to produce on. They both were toshibas and had 2 gigs of ram but they both crashed after about a year because I was trying to use so many plugins and tracks. My iMac has already outlasted both of them and has never even frozen. Macs are just so much more stable.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I'm on a 13" MacBook Aluminium (Late 2009), but since I work with loads of layered VSTs, the Dual Core processor is slowly dying from the heavy workload. Might buy myself a brand new 15" MacBook Pro.

Same thing happens my macbook pro, have you any tips on getting it going faster

I've the buffer size at 2048 and Im told that you can have the driver error compensation anywhere from 50 - 100 ms

Is there anything else I can adjust to speed it up?
