Re: Desktop or laptop?

Neither, I record my music by swimming in copious amounts of money and clinging my collection of rare diamonds together rhythmically. All recorded through a platinum microphone wrapped in 500€ bills straight to vinyls pressed on high quality cheddar cheese. I then consume said music with a side of expensive wine.

Truth be told: The answer should be both, if you have the money to support that. I would like to have a laptop powerful enough to be portable, but currently I produce on a desktop due to price difference.

Re: Desktop or laptop?

I just prefer laptop. If it's strong enough it will hold on I guess.
Though desktops are easier to upgrade/modulate.
If you have a laptop making lot's of noise (whether it's because dust or not) : Hello noise on recordings =D

Re: Desktop or laptop?

As long as it's got great specs laptops are where it's at

Like, if I'm producing regularly I've got it sat at the side of my desk connected to a a bigger moniter & all the midi/usb stuff. But if I want do make stuff while on the train or wherever, I can just unplug it and I've got pretty much my whole studio with me.


Works great, especially when you don't have a giant studio

Re: Desktop or laptop?

I much prefer using a laptop now than a desktop. It's small size and portability is probably the main reason why I use a lappy. Can quickly put it in my case, swing it over my shoulder and take it anywhere without fuss! Also the increasing cpu speed of laptops are steadily closing the gap between the power of the desktops.

I would say a laptop because you can't take a desktop with your on a 12h flight/6h train ride and make a track :-)

Mac if possible

Re: Desktop or laptop?

I always us a PC. For some reason I'm not a fan of using laptops I guess its the small screen. Plus the PC always allows for cheaper upgrades. I'm not knocking the laptop as there some really good ones out there but three's just something about a PC.

Re: Desktop or laptop?

If you're a live performer there's no way around a laptop.
For dedicated home users I see no reason not to use a desktop: cheaper, modular, more powerfull.

I just built a dual-boot and I couldn't be more happy. 3 SSD's, 3 HDD's, 16 GB Ram and a very nice GPU in a Fractal R5 Case. If anyone's interested, it's the Dual-Boot DAW PC list: http://tweakers.net/gallery/318476#tab:inventaris
