I’m about to upgrade my home studio primarily so I can run Trilogy, RMX Stylus and Atmosphere in Cubase 4 or Cubase Studio 4 which I also will be upgrading to.
I could not seem to find any quantifiable stats on how much horsepower and/or RAM I’ll need as well as what type and brand of sound card I should also purchase for the new setup.
As far as the CPU and RAM are concerned, I will either get a machine with:
a Core 2 Duo E6850 and 4Gb of RAM or
a Core 2 Quad Q6600 and 4Gb of RAM.
I would like to get an RME AI if I can afford it, such as the HDSP 9632.
I would be using the RMX Stylus and Trilogy on most of my projects with a sprinkling of
Atmosphere for good measure.
I also own Waves Renn Maxx which I will probably be using in all of my projects as well.
If anyone could help me in the decision of a CPU, RAM and sound card for my new setup, I would greatly appreciate the feedback.
I could afford to go around 3K for those HW items.
