Music production is the process of creating, recording, and refining music for public consumption. The first step when looking for a computer is to check the minimum system requirements for your chosen software. Each system requirement will specify a compatible operating system, processor type, graphic card and the minimum amount of RAM. Typically, you want to ensure your specifications are significantly above the minimum system requirements to ensure your computer runs effectively. Music production software is not a very graphics intensive software. Therefore, it does not matter if you add a graphics card to your build, unless you plan on using other graphics intensive software. However, it is important your playback and monitoring is heard back at the highest of quality. In this case, we recommend a sound card be added to your build for this purpose. Music production software itself is also utilizes a lot of RAM. We recommend at least 16GB of RAM just to be on the safe side as the latest operating systems are also becoming more and more RAM intensive. However, if you work with very complex projects or use multiple applications simultaneously, you may need 32GB or more of RAM. Most music production software have multi-core processes. Therefore, your CPU choice should weigh both on the CPU clock speed and the core count. We only recommend a Solid-State Drive for your operating system and programs instead of a traditional mechanical hard-drive. You can use a mechanical hard-drive as a secondary drive for storing your data if you wish.
