Computer/Mixer Question

I'm looking to connect 1 pair of speakers (Event 20/20) to a Yamaha MG10/2 mixing console so I can use these speakers as monitors for 2 different computers (not simultaneously). 1 computer has 1/4" outs via the audio interface & on the other computer I can only output through the 1/ 8" headphone port which is why I figure I can do this with the mixer.

Newbee - Need new computer advice

The “quick” question is…
Narrowed it down to 3 computers for home recording.
For personal (hobby) use; Cubase 10, Focusrite 18i8; Music genre – Light rock (Wild Feathers, Matchbox 20); Budget $2800-ish;

iMac – 27” monitor, i7, 16GB, 2TB Fusion drive.
MacBook Pro – specs (?) to be determined
Lenovo Thinkpad – Probably P52 – specs (?) to be determined

Looking to buy a new computer for recording

Hi There,

My (admittedly fairly minimalist) recording setup was recently written off in a fire. I am awaiting a payout from the insurance company, and this gives me an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start again from scratch.

The hub of all of this will of course be the computer. I have been umming and erring over this for a long time and feel I need some guidance.

Beginning of the end of computer based recording (finally?)

Check this out! The product itself is cool, but the implications are what I'm enamoured with. Computers are generally clunky, bloated, and relatively expensive. In my opinion far too 'open' for our needs in audio. I've been saying for years a closed, audio (video) only machine has a real place in our little corner of the world.
