xmas present: dual core 4200, can i turn my 64 bit windows into a production music making machine?

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Arthur Rosene, Dec 17, 2005.

  1. I was thinking. Mac's run better with 32 bit processors and have some of
    the best music making software. I'm not a musician but would like to
    experiment with some good production quality software that would run very
    nicely on x64 64 bit. I have some decent amount of hard drive space to
    use. soundcard is audigy 2 value and i am using the green analog speakers.
    I was told that my christmas gift of dual core 2.2ghz processors was a
    waste having a single core 3500 currently. I really thought it would
    enhance the system speed very well overall.

    if someone could please point me to the software i want and need (something
    very versatile and full range capable) just to see if i can create music
    for myself that is unique -- that would run nicely with dual core 4200 with
    2 gigs of pc3500 ram and plenty of hd space.

    thank you

  2. Sonar 5 is the 64 bit happening app right now. Haven't tried it myself
    yet....

  3. well i remember a Apple CEO launch of an application that seemed to be the
    ultimate music making machine. i dont have any external midi interfaces so
    the music creation would have to be built inside the program. a friend of
    mine has produced a number of albums i believe all using his computer
    awhile back. www.skincage.com is the website and Axon is the cd in
    question. i thought to myself -- if he did that with that technology then
    -- what could i do at home now ?? basically i would like to have a music
    program that will allow me to create music on the computer from electronic
    to noisish-samplish (during the day) using both samples and program
    instrumentation. granted i dont have any background in music production.
    its mostly to see what i can do. again i will have dual core 4200's and 2
    gigs of ram and plenty of hd space and an audigy 2. support newsgroups
    would really come in handy.

    thank you

  4. If you have no experience in music production, something like Acid or
    Rebirth might fill the bill, although I have no idea if they are supported
    in 64 bit.
