  1. With a laptop, you won't really have much choice in hardware. ie: The shell will determine the motherboard. With a mobile CPU, you're going to take a performance hit (vs a desktop CPU)... so I'd go with the 14900HX (fastest currently available). You'll (of course) want to use a dedicated external audio interface. If the laptop has Thunderbolt, I'd go with a Thunderbolt audio interface. That'll yield the lowest possible round-trip latency.
  2. Current TB Audio Interfaces are Thunderbolt-3. Thunderbolt controllers have been Thunderbolt-4 for a good while. No bandwidth difference between TB3 and TB4. Differences between TB3 and TB4 (Intel site): https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/thunderbolt/thunderbolt-3-vs-4.html
  3. The OG Presonus Quantum series (connected via Thunderbolt) are able to achieve 1ms total round-trip latency. 96k using a 32-sample ASIO buffer size That won't be the case with any USB unit. If you've got a fast well-configured machine (13900k, 14900k, 7950x): You can run ToneX (similar to Kemper but a plugin) at 1ms total round-trip latency You can run advanced sample libraries like The Grandeur at sub 1ms playback latency
  4. Was a big Logic fan in the early days. Things like realtime non-destructive Quantize were ahead of their time. Not the same (IMO) since bought by Apple.
  5. Read what's new... For many DAWs, that would be more of a .x (point) release.
  6. The three additional oscillators (6 total) and 12-voice polyphony are pretty significant. For folks looking for something like the Moog One (in a virtual instrument), this is getting closer. In fact, those who were (are) disappointed that Moog One wasn't a "polyphonic Mini Moog"... may like this better. There were some recent videos comparing the original Legend to the hardware Trigon-6. (Trigon-6 sounds good... and it's easy to program. The only things I didn't like are the short keyboard and limited 6-voice polyphony.) In those videos, The Legend sounded very close to the Trigon-6. With 12-voice polyphony and other extended features, The Legend HZ is a legit Moog style poly synth.
  7. FWIW, The new Cakewalk Sonar has the same type of feature (drop FX on a channel send to automatically create the effect bus).
  8. I'm not crazy about using a laptop as a "workstation" replacement. Lots of limitations... If you're set on a laptop, I'm not a fan of any off-the-shelf model. All highest-performance custom laptops use Clevo shells. If this is going to be used as a workstation, I'd want a Clevo shell... with 14900HX, 32-64GB DDR5, and 2 or 3 internal M.2 SSDs (depends on the shell/motherboard). Performance wise, that's as close as you'll currently get to a desktop. The 14900HX scores ~33k with Cinebench multi-core. If you're not set on a laptop, a desktop with the 14700k would be perfect. 14700k scores ~34k with Cinebench multi-core You're getting most of the performance of the 14900k... at significantly lower cost, lower power, and lower heat. 14900k is the top DAW performer. Scores ~40k with Cinebench multi-core Needs top-notch 420mm AIO, 1000w PS, and a larger case that can accommodate.
  9. I think I heard TS was making 13-million per show. Motley Crew made a couple hundred million for the "Stadium Tour". No money in making records... but some tours/merch are doing well. 🤪
  10. Didn't realize you already had the CPU. 13600k is the faster CPU. 10900k scores ~18k with Cinebench Multi-Core 13600k scores ~26k with Cinebench Multi-Core
  11. I'd suggest going with a 14700k. You're getting most of the performance of the 14900k... at significantly lower cost, lower power, and lower heat. Scores ~34k with Cinebench Multi-Core 14900k scores ~40k with Cinebench Multi-Core
  12. Tried the v10 demo. If you're wanting to push performance boundaries at ultra low latency... this isn't the DAW to do that. 14900k CPU 96k at a 32-sample ASIO buffer size Mixbus reports 60-90% CPU use (Resource Monitor shows about 7%) This is with a single track of audio... or a single MIDI track with Kontakt 7 running The Grandeur. Like the feature set... $500 seems a bit steep for the full-featured version.
  13. You can download the plugin. What you can't do is Submit your registration for a license. The Submit button doesn't work.
  14. While I don't like the idea of "hard enforced" hardware limitations, 8th Gen CPUs were released 7 years ago. ie: A 10+ year old machine with 4-8GB RAM is not going to be ideal for running Win11. It would be nice if you could make that judgement for yourself... but you'd do better using the older OS and essentially "freezing" the machine in time (as far as OS/Software updates). Unfortunately, data-mining (and use) is a major part of our current society. A Google "Cloud" facility is being built about 10 minutes from our house. It looks more like a miliary compound than a computer server facility (it's massive, has cryogenic cooling towers, and they try to hide it from view with huge mounds of dirt ). Win11 takes more effort to rein-in... but once done, it's a great DAW platform. To add some perspective, I bought a $4000 Mac Studio (M2 Ultra CPU) for testing/support of clients. A 14700k based machine can achieve slightly lower round-trip latency (sub 1ms)... and scores higher on Cinebench Multi-Core. M2 Ultra scores 28.8k (about the same as a 12900k) 14700k scores 34k 14900k scores 40k Data-mining will happen with all the above. Pick your poison.
  15. I just posted a comment... and it's been hidden (awaiting approval)??? Never encountered that on these forums (not even going back to the CompuServ days)
