I have one question that I hope to get help with. I have just a few days experience with Cantabile and plugins, and really no experience with music production in general, or vst hosting or plugins.
I am using a couple of plugins (declick and denoise) from Acon Digital together with Cantabile to remove clicks, pops and similar noise while playing my vinyl collection. From time to time also I want to record audio. I have bought an audio interface (focusrite 2pre USB) for testing and it works great so far. Have not tested to record yet.
The laptop I’ve been testing on is a beast. The plan is to buy something smaller and hopefully much much cheaper, and more quiet. Like a Intel nuc or something similar that can do the job. Ideally it will boot directly and fire up the plugins so no screen is needed.
So the question is, what do I need to run Cantabile with the plugins and win10? Latency is not an issue, but I would not like the audio to skip.
What is the minimum processor and RAM that I need, will a nuc with Celeron or i3 processor work, or do I need to go to i5 or even an i7? Om the laptop I am using today the processor is hardly loaded at all with the setup. A few percent with fs of 48kHz.
I can always buy something cheap and test and return if it’s not working, but thought that I’ll try here first.
For example: this nuc I can get quite cheap where I live:
