In this video, I will explain what’s the best computer for music production. I will show you what’s needed, and why, so this will be the ultimate music production computer buyer’s guide. I will also show you what’s best for music production when it comes to laptops and stationary computers. Additionally, also show you the best budget computer for music production as well. Music production is one of the most CPU-intensive tasks people do on computers today. Why is music production so demanding on your CPU? This is because music production relies on real-time processing, which is very difficult for a CPU to do. If you make huge projects in FL Studio, Ableton, or any other DAW, you’ll need pretty powerful hardware in order to run it. The CPU is extremely important for a music production computer, and I will also show you what’s is best for music production between Intel and AMD right now.
In the second half of this video, we will also be building a brand new computer for music production from scratch. I will show you all the parts used and how to put them all together. If you’re looking for a new computer for music production, then check out the parts list below. It doesn’t matter if you use FL Studio, Ableton, Cubase, Studio One, Reaper, or whatever. They all work in a similar manner, so a computer that works well for say FL Studio will also work well for Ableton, Logic, Cubase, and every other DAW as well. The music production computer shown in this video is in my opinion the best computer for music production in 2022.
