PC Computer For Music

Looking for the best PC desktop computers for music production and recording in 2017 for your DAW home recording studio?

Out of all the components in the home recording studio, your PC music laptop computer is one of the most import choices you'll have to make!

 

You have two formats of laptop computers to choose from, PC or Mac.  In this article, I am going to focus on the PC laptop music computer.

Note - Eventually you're going to have to learn how to master your songs on that PC!  Check out - How To Professionally Master Your Own Songs!

A minimum of a 2.5GHZ Quad Core computer is highly recommended.  Dual cores just don't have enough speed compared to a quad core.  A 250GB hard drive is sufficient because you only run the DAW software on the main drive, and your song files, virtual instrument, etc. are either on additional drives or on external drives.  I use external drives because you can easily disconnect them and put them in a safe place when you leave the house.

LOWER PRICED - PC MUSIC COMPUTER (DESKTOP)

 

Cybertron Patriot

CybertronPC Patriot Desktop (Black/Red)
Only $459.99

This computer uses an AMD 3.4GHZ Dual-Core processor.  It also has three expansions slots for a PCI, PCI-E x1 and PCI-E x16 card.  1 TB Hard Disk Drive. 8GB Ram1 Year Parts And Labor Full Warranty.

This music computer has only a two core processors, while the other two PCs above have six and four cores.  It's performance is adequate, but it will be noticeable slower than a quad-core computer.  For example, exporting a mix on this computer might take 4:00 minutes, while a quad-core it would take 2:30 minutes.  A one track master 2:00 instead of 1:00. 

If you're working on your own music, it will be fine.  If you run a business and you're exporting 20-30 songs a day, I would opt for a quad or six core processor, otherwise you're wasting an hour every day in export time.

Eventually you're going to have to learn how to master your songs on that PC!  Check out - How To Professionally Master Your Own Songs!
