So I have a crazy idea I wanted to get your opinions on.
My friend is getting a Nord Stage 3 soon, so naturally I started thinking that I need to beef up my C3 rig. Right now I’m running skinny VSTIs on an i5 Surface Pro 2 and have been doing fine at my gigs even covering the left hand bass. But now, I think I want higher powered software.
Do you think its possible to run Trillian, Omnisphere (or something equivalent), KeysScape and a good B3 emulator on a i7 Surface Pro 3 with 8GB RAM? My machine right now is 4GB and gets occasional distortion noise if I overload it with large sample VSTs in a performance.
I appreciate any advice on a portable (gigs) machine configuration to run these big VSTIs, and also software that could get me comparable sounding to the Nord stuff. Less cost is always better too, as my kids like to eat. A Lot.
