    PC Upgrade from a 12-core Xeon

    I don't know how large your projects are but, the 9900k should be a more than enough, especially if you get a decent overclock out of it.

    PC Upgrade from a 12-core Xeon

    9900k is still king for the price. Are you getting close to maxing out all 12 cores?

    Making my 1st VEP Server Unit PC... any suggestions? :)

    Yeah you're right. Read that as 9900k..

    Making my 1st VEP Server Unit PC... any suggestions? :)

    Depending on your monitor setup, you can use the integrated graphics just fine.

    Rethinking my CPU

    The processor you have is great. You probably wont notice much of a difference for that much money. You can actually squeeze higher clock speeds out of your current processor.

    Buy more ram or upgrade to SSD's?

    Unless there's some test showing this, pretty sure that is not true. 1 SSD is 'technically' faster, and easier to manage and organize. Also great for future expansion. Samples get held in RAM, which is why you need so much for large templates. Your hard drive is mostly for storage. SSD's just...

    Buy more ram or upgrade to SSD's?

    imo, no point in getting RAM unless you reallly need it. Opt for a large SSD over multiple SSDs. I would wait till the end of the year for deciding on a CPU. New Ryzen has got some good specs on paper, but Intel is still going to be better for Audio applications. Their 10nm processors should be...

    Logic Pro 1000+ track support coming?

    I would hope a $15,000 computer can handle 1000 carefully selected tracks for a live demo on software that is optimized for that OS and hardware.

    [Thread] AMD/Intel CPU 2019

    This would make sense, as Ryzen benchmarks have seen better performance with faster RAM. But at what cost? At the moment, 3733mhz RAM is nearly double the price of 3000/3200. That certainly closes the gap a bit on CPU Value.

    [Thread] AMD/Intel CPU 2019

    if we can get a solid 5ghz or more out of those top end chips with comparable thermals, it might be a great choice. Again, we will have to see some benchmarks. There is more to the CPU than just clock speed and cores.

    SSD showing WORSE performance than HDD

    +1 for the file system. Reformat, and make sure its Mac OS Extended (journaled)

    Building a dedicated computer

    I think @EvilDragon touched on this in another thread, but it has something to do with with way AMD designed their processors that still makes them inferior to Intel for real-time audio applications. Looking forward to the ScanPro benchmarks. AMD is giving Intel some competition, but I still...

    Building a dedicated computer

    Also, you could probably save some money going with 3000mhz RAM. Someone else can chime in on their experience, but I don't think you will notice a substantial difference with faster RAM (for the price). +2 for Fractal and Noctua

    The new 2019 Mac Pro Announced! - Apple is back!

    That is just what Intel Ark has it listed as for "suggested MSRP" on account that you can't actually buy this CPU. But the W-3275 is exactly the same except it supports 1TB of RAM instead of 2. It was more of a generalization, but I roughly specced out a 3175X with 256gb of Ram and lots of...

    The new 2019 Mac Pro Announced! - Apple is back!

    Also.. for 10k, you can probably have the 28 core Xeon-W, with lots of ram and storage and maybe a sample library on the side.

    The new 2019 Mac Pro Announced! - Apple is back!

    Hes comparing a computer to a computer, and whats best for what most of the people on this forum intend to use it for. There is nothing special about mac hardware, especially today. It just looks pretty, and you don't have to put it together.

    So what should I put on my SSD?

    Yeah its not worth it at all. Get a USB-C drive or enclouse and throw all your samples on that. Samsung T5 is great, or find a USB-C m.2 enclosure and get a Samsung Pcie drive.

    So what should I put on my SSD?

    So a few things. There are statements all over the internets saying that filling up SSD's will make it slower. I dont think that is a problem today, and if you're filling up SSDs that close you have a different issue. What mac do you have? Depending on this answer I would just replace your main...

    Apple introduces first 8-core MacBook Pro

    "we averaged a score of 3096 on this machine in Cinebench R20 —well above the 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro with 2.4 GHz i5 processor we benchmarked that earned a 1779" lol.. Id hope so, its double the cores. 94 degrees around 3ghz is better than the 2018 variant, but still not great at the $3000...

    [Thread] AMD/Intel CPU 2019

    Cant wait to start seeing some real benchmarks and real-world tests with these new chips. Its ability to overclock is going to show us if they are much better than Zen1 or cant even beat Intel's next offerings.

    SSDs: 1 vs multiple for VI Orchestra

    IMO I dont know why some users opt for so many drives. Stick to large SSD's. I believe most of the load is taken by your RAM so I think drive performance is not an issue (with SSD's). Someone may want to chime in on that if they have experiences that say otherwise.

    Thinkpad P52 as main machine. + optionally adding a slave later. Opinions?

    It can work, but except limitations on project size. Not sure what your music projects look like but generally laptops are great for traveling sketches, as mentioned above. Even a newer beefy, small form factor laptop wont touch the performance of a mid level Desktop. CPU and cooling are the...

    Stuck on splash screen!

    Interesting. Didn't you say you tried the drive in another system? Maybe you could try to boot it there and try to roll back the system to a previous date? Check event logs to see if there are any signs.

    Stuck on splash screen!

    Very odd. Try to re-seat the RAM for good measure. Maybe try to re-flash the Bios. Do you have another drive you can try to install an OS on to test?
  32. Damarus

    Stuck on splash screen!

    Anything change prior to this? Any hardware removed, added or computer moved? Re-seat RAM? There are no external or USB drives plugged in correct? Quick search shows you might have to try re-flashing the BIOS as an option.

    Sound feedback before master wanted: Orchestral folk music

    I actually agree, the vocals are like 1-2 db too low in some parts. I think it could definitely benefit from some soft compression as well. it sits a bit low in the beginning, then starts to blend a lot better toward the middle, then starts to get a little lost toward the higher dynamics at the...

    Building a home rig (Suggestions?)

    I'm all for AMD coming back to be competitive. But I doubt this time around they will "beat" Intel. Their price/performance is still great but have maybe a generation or two to surpass Intel at this point. Intel comes ahead for its ability to overclock. Not to mention Thunderbolt technology...

    Host samples on NAS with 10gbe

    Yeah mapped drives work well for convenience but for real-time performance, I dont think its better than directly connected to machine. We can see if some VEPro experts chime in here, but I would much rather have the 7820x as my main. You can either add another slave to the mix if that server...

    Host samples on NAS with 10gbe

    Honestly I would worry more about real world performance rather than benchmarks. Best option would be to use the Server machine as a slave with VEPro over 10gbe imo. Mapped drives through windows are meh.

    Host samples on NAS with 10gbe

    So essentially a slave computer. What are your main concerns if everything is working? I don't see much benefit to upgrading the PC/sever if you're not hitting a bottleneck yet.

    Suggestions for Thunderbolt 3 SSD enclosure for new iMac?

    The T5's would be a better option for sure, but probably more expensive? You wouldn't need a TB3 enclosure for any SATA SSD, as it wouldn't reach those speeds anyways. USB 3.1 would be just fine, and easier to find. Edit: T5's are a cheaper option than SSD + Enclosure
