That's alot of tracks you'll be bouncing. I don't usually go to that level of detail with my own stuff, but I do understand why people do. More likely I'm pretty impatient to get something done now, then move on before I get pretty bored with it.
I guess at some point you'll bring up some working sample on here at a stopping point.

 

Not all playing simultaneously, but that is typical for all the stuff we can have in a single song. I'm probably forgetting one or two odds and ends too. We've been working on it for a long time and we're really sick of these songs, haha.

@Bowei: The mouse is the "Legend" edition of the discontinued IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 which was a great mouse.

Man I need a smaller keyboard but I don't know what to do with my old one... I got the g110, but there's like 3 inches on the side extra for the macro keys and now I can't put my mouse onto my slide-out keyboard thing on my desk. Been annoying as hell for the past 3 months.

EVERYONE had one of those mouses. Including me. That bugger lasted a decade. But none the less, why buy a "Legend" edition of a mouse from way way back..... when you can get a mouse from today with better (subjective) ergonomics and looks(you won't like the looks of the ones further down the list) but I understood why you had that mouse as an option.

Here's what I'm looking at now:

 

-ASRock H77M ($60)

-Core i3-3220 ($120)

-G.SKILL 8GB ($25)

-OCZ 60GB SSD ($60)

-3TB Barracuda ($90)

-Asus DVD Burner ($20)

 

Total: $375

 

Maybe I could find a free or el cheapo case+psu, maybe not. I'm contemplating just skipping the hassle and buying new stuff. I'm not necessarily stuck at strictly $400, so I think I could pull it off. Bowei mentioned Rosewills with included psu's earlier, but this can come out to the same price and looks nicer?:

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147023 ($30 case)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026 (Same psu from before)

 

Or if I want to save, I could eschew the SSD (and maybe get a new mouse instead because mine SUCKS). Yeah it's better, but I'm pretty sure I'd still be functional without it. My friend's 4-year old Macbook handles most of this stuff most of the time, so I'm not sure I absolutely need to take it quite that far.

 

Decisions...

Depends. Some plugins (like Ozone mastering suite or some more complicated synths) can easily take most of a single thread/core/whatever by themselves. Luckily you can freeze the tracks you don't use ATM...

Haiburi got a better deal

Not only do you get a better motherboard but its the same price because the same exact RAM is included for the same price. Even better. Sadly..not for us.

 

That SSD will bring the speed up mucho fast

 

BIOS motherboards can not use 3TB's as an install for an OS. 

 

Try for a crap case?? Maybe....?

 

Just talk to your colleges tech section and ask for a free case and or PSU if they have one

Yeah. Real big things like Ozone I'd probably only use on a single bounced file of the whole song, or maybe split into just a few tracks, in a separate session anyway.

 

Haha, there's ways around lack of power if you deactivate other tracks and do things individually, though it's annoying and very time consuming. My current computer can barely handle a few plugins on a single track though.

I'm on ep 8 and I've been ranting about it 24/7

 

 

@Manveru

If you are having trouble asking, I could call and ask your tech departement for you. Or hell, many people or friends.

I think that Biostar doesn't have the right kind of slot for Intel though?

 

Noted on the SSD/HDD thing. I'll just stick with the combo then.

 

Crap case...maybe...but since some of this stuff is on sale right now and I'd have to end up ordering stuff today, I'd feel more secure knowing exactly what I'm going to get and when I'm going to get it. Crap case is a gamble on every level. While it could save money, I think the psychological comfort of just buying stuff alone might be worth it.

 

I'd be looking at a total of about $430 then I think. Not too shabby...

So.... how's Shinsekai?

post #41745 of 153937

Meh, I'm leaning more towards just saying "screw it." If I already had a crap case ahead of time, I would be fine with it, but the uncertainty of not knowing with absolute certainty if I can get one (regardless of whether or not it's probable), or when I can get one, or what it's even going to be like physically, bothers me a lot more than ~$50 at this point.
