Andrew have you thought maybe to get a new Nuendo 4? have you tried any Steinberg DAW software?


Thanks for the suggestion Ivan -

I've used it in the past and it works very well, but I don't enjoy paying for the new version every 18 months - its VERY expensive!

I have found Reaper to be comparable in a lot of areas, better in some, and much much cheaper! Also new features are added all the time, so for now I am very happy with Reaper as it does everything I need.

Because of its price I think a lot of people regard Reaper as a toy, but in fact its every bit as serious a DAW as Cubase!

8 cores are overrated wink.gif Even vista cant use the horsepower properly tongue.gif Maybeeee OSX - Snow leopard with its Grand Central will make some use of it..

But as far, as I red (I may be wrong;) ), in some cases, dual and quadcores perform even faster at some times:P So all of us, others dont have to envy so much:P (its more of excuse for myself, for having just a normal, mortal PC biggrin.gif)

Other than that its sweeet tongue.gif Especially the single stick 4GB ram:P I want that too for VST's:(((

OK mate, that is a good reasoning indeed. Also with your mix of hardware software and experience Reaper will do the job just great, you have a point.

Not bashing Cubase at all though - I did like it a lot when I was using it!

What a coincidence! I had Metallica's book "This Monster Lives" on the side of my Mac just when I read that. Maybe there really is something to it..? unsure.gif

I'm up and running and my new machine is sweet!

I'll post a new thread detailing my thoughts on Vista and 32 vs 64 bit since there were a fair number of opinions!

I just treated myself to a new Quad Core 64-bit system yesterday. The previous machine was having too many oddball errors going on so I pulled the trigger on it.

Added a GeForce 9600 GT to it.

Put my E-MU 1212m in it.

All seems to be well so far.

Andrew's PC would call him....... "MINI ME" wink.gif

@Ivan - its running a little hot for my taste although not actually failing. I am still mulling things over - maybe I need to add some water cooling but I need to save up for that.

Overall CPU temperature is reported as 37, but the core temperatures vary a lot and get up into the 80s occasionally when the machine is working hard, which is a little too got for my liking! Also, one set of cores runs a lot hotter than the other.
