Best LAPTOP for music production

Video Review


Video Transcript


in this video what is the best laptop
for music production I talked about
specs and my recommendations the table
of contents is in the description below
but make sure you stick around to the
end because I answer your most asked
questions in the comments I’ll dive to
the best new laptop for music production
not the mediocre ones because the
mediocre ones are ok now but lack
okayness in the future and there is
nothing more annoying than a laptop that
has to render out everything and you
have to wait for that to be honest I
didn’t want to make new reels about this
topic but since it’s becoming a trend on
YouTube to upload videos with the most
horrible recommendations I felt the need
to step in besides that I have a degree
in software engineering and worked in
computer stores for 10 years I’ve
consulted with a store before making
this video Mac or PC well it may come as
a shock to you but music sounds the same
on both platforms
most major doors have versions for Mac
and Windows and most major sound cards
have versions for Mac and Windows
so it comes down to personal preference
for me personally I’m not an Apple fan
anymore they sent me broke and refused
to repair it also I don’t like that
decision regarding Sol ring everything
to your motherboard your SSD for example
if your SSD freezes up after 4 or 5
years your SSD is broken and not your
complete motherboard but Apple wants you
to replace the whole computer with a new
one by of $5,000 if you are considering
a second-hand laptop definitely avoid
the MacBook Pros from 2015 to 2019
because they have overheating and
throwing issues exploding issues on
playing keyboard issues external drive
disconnecting issues because the USBC
ports where out his problems blown up
because like the tracking do I need to
continue if you still want to Mac choose
the MacBook Pro 16 inch I go into more
details about the differences between
Mac and PC in my special video Mac
versus PC the link is in the description
below first of all the CPU the most
important thing for music product
you need a quick CPU so my
recommendation a 7-series CPU of the
latest generation with at least four
course especially reverbs and heavy
synthesizer plugins multiple voices and
multiple instances of a heavy
synthesizer plugins will take up a ton
of CPU power the number of gigahertz is
important but more important for speed
is the number of course you have in your
processor a core is effectively another
processor in the same shell oh and one
thing those turbo boost frequencies are
more a marketing term than anything else
yes they could improve the speed of your
computer but it’s only for a short
amount of time like opening a web page
for example but you won’t take advantage
of that with music production because
you ask a constant amount of CPU power
so in theory yes but in practice no
indie or Intel well that’s an excellent
question at the moment
MD is king when it comes to speed
however Indy makes an implementation of
an Intel processor instruction set but I
have to say the compatibility improved
tremendously over the last few years but
I heard rumors of some MIDI controls not
working and some plugins not working I
asked produces specifically which
plugins and which MIDI controls are not
working but I got no real answers so I
asked you in my community tab if you
have an AMD processor did you experience
compatibility problems only 21 people
took the poll 33% said that they
experienced issues 67% said no issues I
also asked what doesn’t work if you have
problems but I got no tangible examples
in the comments Thunderbolt on AMD is
still a little bit problematic because
it’s Intel technology music producers
seem to think that you always need a big
amount of memory in your computer well
that’s not always the case if you use a
lot of synthesizers then you need a big
bu-but not a lot of memory but when you
use a lot of sample based instruments
then you need a lot of memory but not a
lot of CPU power choose 8 gigabytes when
you’re on a budget and can expand later
but my recommendation is 16 gigabytes
especially when you use a lot of sample
based instruments I made a special video
about how much memory you actually need
for music production the link is in the
description
CPUs you can’t easily exchange but
memory you can so if you’re on a budget
choose a bigger CPU and add memory later
if you can’t expand later then I say be
future proof choose 32 or maybe even 64
gigabytes of memory and again some Apple
laptops have that problem but some other
a brands have the same problem storage a
7200 rpm hard drive or even better an
SSD the 4500 rpm hard drive is too slow
for music production and SSD is quicker
what I already said and it’s also good
for the battery life of your computer I
would say 1 terabyte you will always run
out of space sooner or later and a lot
of sample based plugins can eat up a lot
of storage there’s a widely used sample
based plug-in on the market that already
takes up 500 gigabytes full installation
and you need some space left for your
operating system you adore your samples
and your projects working with external
hard drives is a pain in the it defeats
the whole purpose of being mobile they
are easy to break easy to get lost and
where do you put them to take them to
the lid of your laptop the screen 15
inch or prefer a 17 inch yes it becomes
a heavy machine with 17 inch but you
need the overview more of you means less
scrolling means a quicker workflow a lot
of plugins and doors don’t take into
account 13 inch and their respective
resolutions then you are missing buttons
on plugins for example or you need a
magnifying glass to see what’s going on
yes I’m talking from X
variance if you want to keep it small
make sure that you have an external
monitor collector like HDMI for example
then you can connect a big screen when
you are producing in the studio a
side-scrolling mouse this makes
scrolling in your timeline a lot easier
yeah there are some laptops that have
decent trackpads but it never beats the
speed of a mouse a backlit keyboard so
you can see your keyboard in a badly lit
environment gamer laptops could be the
best laptop for music production but
they are bad for one reason
there are heavy-duty graphics cots in
them and you don’t take advantage of
that for music production the blacklist
well because of the backlash I got on my
blackness in my previous videos because
people took it as a personal attack on
them when I named
a brand and they had one and that had
that one notebook no problem ok you want
I don’t include it some hints I do want
to give you number one some Dell XPS an
Inspiron series are notorious for having
latency problems with music production
these laptops are solid machines but I
would be very careful to choose one as a
music producer if you don’t believe it
Google it ain’t number two if a letter
brand relies heavily on bloatware for
its machines that should tell you
something about the quality of the
Machine bloatware is sponsored software
by the way and the most biggest laptop
brands do rely heavily on blow pair hint
number three the lower the price the
lower the quality of the components the
lower the quality of the customer
service in laptop land there’s no such
thing as a good deal anymore because the
models are terribly thin hint number
four avoid Chinese brands we all know
the technical reasons for that and a
little bit the political ones even if
they’re true or not number five why most
brands are not on the white list is for
a reason either longevity build quality
or cost
or service and don’t be a douche about
it in the comments
well number six is not more of a hint
but more a tip Google the specific type
number of the laptop you want to buy and
see if someone experience problems
problems with it the items on the white
list
first of all HP weather alley book
series Asus then Microsoft with the
service laptops although they tend to be
a little bit slower and Dell with the
Alienware series if they offer extended
warranty buy it this is my
recommendation but what’s yours
21% set Asus 11% said eraser 15% said HP
and 12% said Dell the frequently asked
questions can I use my old laptop for
music production do I need to buy a new
one
I have model ax does it work well you
can use your old computer it will
probably work the computers that are
made in the last 10 years are almost all
suited for music production I wouldn’t
worry about it too much if you do worry
then I suggest you download a free door
install it and see if it works I made a
special video about free doors so if
you’re in doubt which one to choose
check out the link in the description
below what do you think about razor well
to be honest I don’t know the brand very
well I can’t say if it’s good or if it’s
bad I can say that I saw a panel on a te
2018 of the marketing firm that pointed
razor to the music producer in other
words laptop so music production weren’t
a technical decision but like marketing
this session and when I asked my friend
who owns the computer store hey what
about razor
I said razor they make gamer mice and
keyboards so I asked you in my community
tab here on YouTube would you recommend
razor to fellow music producers 58% said
yes and 42% said nope you only recommend
expensive computers I’m not rich
well the faster computers are better for
music production because they are faster
and they are more convenient to work
with and yes faster computers tend to be
more expensive Brand X is cheaper than Y
with the same specs is it a good deal in
other words why choose the more
expensive brand
well cheapness and reliability often
don’t go hand-in-hand
there is a big difference although the
processor may be the same there is a big
difference in the other components of
memory motherboard battery etc etc etc
when something generally is more
expensive the quality of the components
is generally better should I choose a
hard drive or an SSD well an SSD makes
your computer faster in general it makes
your computer more snappier and that’s
why I would recommend it but to be
honest it doesn’t make you make music
faster yes your projects load faster
your downloads faster your presets load
faster so it is more convenient but no
speed in the music production process
itself 10th gen l 11 gen gen 19th Jan
2010 processor what should I choose well
I say choose the most recent processor
because or it has less security issues
or it’s faster will door acts work on my
computer I don’t know check the specs on
the website of the software maker I want
an ultrabook is it good well no
ultrabooks are called ultrabooks because
they’re ultra slim orioles are small but
ultra books haven’t heat distribution
problem and you need good heat
distribution because your processor gets
really hot when you produce music and it
slows down when it can’t get properly
rid of that heat so you won’t take
optimal advantage of the power of your
laptop the best laptops for music
production the models that I recommend
when I recommend models in this video
three weeks after this video is really
the models are not in stock anymore and
there are newer type and model numbers
out there so what I decided to do is
make a page on my blog learn how to
produce music calm link in the
description where it can update easily
the type and model numbers so you are up
to date and if you download my free
ebook link also in the description you
can read a whole chapter about the best
computers and best laptops for music
production

Bestseller No. 1


Image Line FL Studio 20 Producer Edition Mac/Windows

So you’ve decided that you’re going to buy a laptop computer for your FL Studio music software, but you don’t know where to start. Before making any decisions about what laptop to buy, you need to decide how much you want to spend. The more money you spend, the more powerful your computer will be. So that means that the higher-quality laptops are going to cost more money than cheaper ones. The best laptop forFL Studio, then, is one that costs the most money, but still has all the features you need.

The best laptops for FL Studio will be the ones that have all the features you need, yet at the same time are not too expensive. The most important part of a laptop computer is the screen, so you need to make sure that the screen is big enough for the graphics you’ll be creating on it. This may not be a problem for someone who only uses their laptop for editing audio files or watching videos. However, if you’re a musician who will be making music as well as playing it on the screen, then you’ll need to pay special attention to how big your screen needs to be in order to do both jobs. If you’re a musician who plays in a band and makes use of microphones for the songs you make, then you’re going to need to think of how much space your keyboard needs to fit into. All of this needs to be taken into account before you go shopping for a laptop.

It’s important to buy a laptop that has all the features you’ll use for your FL Studio projects. For example, some laptops have the USB keyboard or mouse that you’ll use to connect to the computers for uploading your music. Other laptops have speakers that you’ll be able to attach to your laptop and listen to your tracks in front of a monitor. You can even find laptops that have additional storage space built in. You can buy these if you don’t have enough room on your laptop to store all of your music files. Some laptop computers even come with a backup memory device. This means that if something happens to the memory device, you can take a backup of everything you have saved on your computer and restore it to an external drive.
