Cakewalk and xeon E5 1620 v3

Recommended Posts

I have an opportunity to get a tower with a xeon E5-1620 v3 cpu and 16 gb of ram for $100.00. I want to simply use cake walk to build backing tracks using my guitar and bass with a little keyboard. I will be using VST plugins. My question is : Is the Xeon E5-1620 v3 using 16 gb of ram enough for no latency?

Thanks ahead of time.

The choice of audio interface and plug-ins are the determiners of the delay heard when monitoring the signal being recorded through the DAW.

The CPU may be part of the equation when running the audio interface at a high sample rate with a low buffer setting.

I use a quad zeon. works well enough.

If you want zero latency, monitor the source signals before the daw and go ahead and run the buffer setting that the pc finds comfortable. This is what I do.
