Hello, I am attempting to set up a computer-based home studio and have been advised to consult you as to the best computer system/components to use as the core of the studio. Several folks have said that many components which often come on a basic PC can detract from optimum set up for audio recording, and that certain other parameters are necessary. I'd like to buy a computer with the necessary requirements to be able to do high-quality, professional work. I would appreciate if you would provide your opinion on what would constitute a basic set up, and your opinions on: -Brand -Necessary cards and best brand/model/type -Necessary/optimal RAM -Best processor and speed -Necessary optimal hard drive -Other aspects (e.g. certain brands have x, y, and z which seem to enhance a, b, and c in audio production) of which I am not yet aware! Thank you, Alan Lipman -Best software program -Other necessary components. Thank you!
