I took that other hp back with the amd processor and got this. She a beast too, just moving from Mac to pc. There’s just simple utilities that I’m missing. That I had to use third party software for. One in particular and that’s sending a clock to keep time from traktor to ableton. I also made a simple batch to run the ad hoc to run touchosc to connect my iPad.
Before I tried to setup and disable servers for high performance. I just installed traktor 2.6 with a kontrol s4 just to see if I get any drop outs, pops, etc. And she past the test, still ended up setting up everything cause I run ableton in the background also. After summer is over I’ll have another Mac book pro just off of DJing.
For now I do believe and hope this holds me down. Ill still use my old Mac book pro as a back up when I get it from being fixed. The laptop I had got before this one though was a hp also. The specs where good but the only thing was it had a AMD processor in it. That thing was just not for my use for doing anything that deals with music.
I went on the web and started surfing about the processor. And sure enough I had to go intel for multimedia production. Which I knew I was looking at the price plus specs. But in this game of technology you get what you pay for. The components mean everything when you get a new computer. I know for real now everybody that DJ is gonna ask me how to setup they windows based pc for high performance. Right now I think there only like 10 servers running that startup. And those are the main ones I have to have running in order to make everything work.
I’m still trying to tweak at the same time to get the full use of this I7 3 gen processor. I got my moneys worth with this purchase. Plus I have 30 days to take it back if I don’t like it, or it doesn’t meets my needs. I’m gonna keep this one though regardless. Here are the specs for the HP M4 1015dx
