Topic: Windows 7 ready to go for audio ?
I am preparing a new desktop for audio recording ( with a Fireface 800).
I was wondering if this could be the time to start with Win 7 ( I skipped Vista and have been using Xp until now) to start to get some confidence with it.
I see all these posts about problems in configuration and have been worrying about it.
As I know the benefits of going Win 7 are the chance to have more ram available and going 64 bits.
On this last point I am not sure I can understand the benefits of this.
Anything I miss ?
I have been suggested to go with an easy Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 ( it has a T.I. Firewire connection) with an Athlon II X2 250. I don't need crazy power as I am doing recording of 8 tracks maximum and very light vst processing and no use of Vsti. So it' more about an easy, solid and silent machine than a super up to the edge one.
