Hi, I'm the guy who's been plaguing the beginners forum with questions about USB audio interfaces for the last week or so. I'm back with questions about recording computers. I'm currently the owner of a Win10 PC which dates back to 2013. I'm thinking about updgrading my audio interface and possibly also my PC, mainly for recording needs. I'm tired of Win10 driver issues restricting my choice of audio interface. I'm also tired of my old motherboard which prevents me from updating to Thunderbolt 3 without changing it. Here's my question: in your experience, what computer do you recommend for recording in 2018 ? What would be the bare minimum, recommended and optimal computer in your opinion ? Here's where my reasoning is currently at. RAM: recommended 16 GB/optimal 32 GB (for loooots of tracks + VSTs + etc.) Processor: recommended i7-quadcore @ ~3GHz Hard disk: 1+ TB. Is SSD necessary for recording ? OS: my preference here would be MAC. I'd possibly migrate from Reaper to Logic.
