I was talking to a friend of mine, a drummer who also records and produces, about computers.
“When my friends all got those little cheap laptops, I was so jealous,” he said.
That’s what I’ve learned. When you’re recording music, your computer becomes an investment, not a toy to surf the internet on.
I use a MacBook Pro, the small one. It’s less than a year old, so it’s fast and has 2G of memory, which is filling up fast. It’s nice, because on my old Mac laptop (a hand-me-down), I used to have to freeze tracks if I recorded too many of them. That never happens now. 🙂
