You want to achieve an uninterrupted tone along with seeing how far you can go until your CPU maxes out.

Just use the default settings that get created automatically when you create the audio track. You're not recording any audio per se, hence you'll see flat lined waveforms on all your audio tracks. Congrats on the new system!

Default Re: i7 Builds - Specs and Results

I am getting ready to do a new build and I am looking for some advice. I have read through the last 15ish pages and there is some great info but I am still a little confused. With so many options to choose from, how can I narrow down my search for a Intel i7/MB combo. I want high performance but would like to buy wherever the price break point is between cutting edge and still very good ($600ish). Maybe the better question is what is it that I don't want to consider and what is an absolute must, in regards to the CPU and also the MB. I am running the latest PT and waves. I have been using windows 8.1 x64 but I am pretty sure I am going to go back to Win 7 x64.

Thanks in advance!

Default New Build Day!

X99 Build!

I just ordered the rest of my components for an X99 build. Very excited to put this machine together. I probably went a hair overboard. In the back of my mind I think I've tricked myself into believing if I buy nice guitars and components that I'll make better music (which it total bullcrap of course)

Hopefully this results in a stable ProTools 11 build. Came in a hair under $2,150. (Already had one of the displays)
  • Core i7-5820k
  • Gigabyte GA-X99
  • Crucial Ballistix Sport 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400
  • SAMSUNG 850 Pro 256GB - Windows 8.1 Pro - For Protools
  • 2 x WD Black Series 1TB
  • 2 x Asus VX279Q
  • Gigabyte GV-N750OC-2GI G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP
  • Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl
  • Noctua NH-D14 SE2011
  • Corsair HX Series HX850
  • ASUS Black Blu-ray Burner
  • Intel 530 Series 120GB - Just an extra cheap SSD for Linux
  • Logitech K270 Keyboard
  • Asus PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter

No, it's true. You WILL make better music. It's been well documented in this thread over the years.

I've been planning a similar build for some time now. Perhaps you will inspire me to finally take the plunge. Good luck on your build let us know how you're progressing.

Motherboard only supports dual-channel. At this price point, you can find one that supports quad channel.

Video card is way overkill for just PT.

I don't know anything about that HGST hard drive, maybe someone can chime in about it.

Any particular reason you're going with a wireless card, instead of running some cat 5e? Wifi can pose a problem for Pro Tools in some configurations.

What exactly would be the benefit of quad channel over dual channel?

I thought the card might be a little much for just Pro Tools, but I would also like to be able to play games on fairly high settings.

As for the wireless card, my living situation at the moment prevents me from running wires from the router to the computer, so it's either wireless or nothing.

You can get great gaming performance for less cost, the Quadro series is meant more for rendering than for gaming. Try a Geforce card, which will offer you better gaming performance and also save you some money. Like this one for $169 after rebate, and is quiet: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125556
