Hardware upgrade

Posted by MetalRenard - December 30th, 2017


The last time I posted news was early 2016. Goodness... I've neglected my music for that long. Terrible.

Part of this is because life gets more complicated and more demanding. Part of this is (honestly) because I hate not sitting right with my partner when I'm home which means my music PC, in the office, stays mostly off and far away.

With a view to reinvigorate my music production, I've upgraded my laptop (which is a powerful Asus N552VW) with a 3rd internal HDD - Western Digital Black, 1TB. This is a fast (7200rpm) drive on which I now keep all my virtual instrument data. This way, I don't need to use external drives and I can more comfortably create music no matter where I am.

I hope this will get me making music again since, now, I no longer have an excuse. It's at my finger-tips at all times.

Nice! Asus brands are great. I think you'll like the upgrade. I have a similar model and it seems to be able to handle whatever I can throw at it.
Good luck in the new year, and I hope to hear some of your new stuff soon. :)

I already love it, indeed! I hope 2018 is amazing for you too!
