So I am re-thinking this whole replacing the laptop thing. And I recall reading (and I cannot recall where of by whom) that to reduce PC load I can use the same setup for all songs?
IE, I pretty much use the same three VSTi’s…just with different presets and levels. Is it somehow possible to setup songs so that nothing needs to get loaded every song? Pre-load doesn’t work for me as there are way too many in the playlist, but yeah a system where the same three VST’s reside “in memory” and all that changers are the patch changes and the settings, I think that may help the situation. I have a feeling that as the system is, while solid, not at the top of the performance tree, anything like this may help.
