Hi, this is my first post I have a 2015 laptop which I’d like to use with Cantabile (specs: i3-4030U, 1.9. GHz with 8GB of RAM and 500 GB HDD). Before the pandemic, I used it for playing some lightweight VSTs on Ableton with no problems, although it used to take one minute to launch Ableton.
Since I have another laptop for my other activities, now I’d like to use the old laptop exclusively to play in concert with Cantabile and the VSTs. Maybe some of you guys do the same, but you probably have betters computers. Could you give some tips of which programs do you keep and erase in your cantabile-oriented laptops in order to make them faster and more stable? Is there anything else that I can do?
The only VST that I use are: Combo Model V (free VST), Lounge Lizard, Fire (Fender Rhodes Piano Bass VST) and EZKeys Grand Piano. Also, I have some Gibson G101 wave samples which I use through TX16Wx. I’m a keyboardist in a Doors tribute band and I play the organ and keyboard bass.
Thank you for your tips!
