HP Spectre to run DAW?

Post by rocadani » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:13 pm

HP Spectre 360 may not work out as well as I hoped. It features a 1.9 ghz - 4 ghz "turbo" which backs off when the fan speed increases. Okay as long as running around 12 latency at 44.1 ghz sample rate (edit) 256 ghz buffer size, been trying to get by with around 6 latency 44.1 ghz / (edit) 128 buffer and get an occasional warning for cpu overload when the fan turns up.

So far just running small project to learn Cubase, not sure how well it will handle additional tracks and plugs. I may have to employ CPU saving techniques to get by with this laptop, wouldn't recommend it for DAW at this point.

Cubase 9.5, HP Spectre 360 i7 8th Gen - 512 SSD - 16 GB, Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (2nd Gen) USB Interface, Taylor 210 Acoustic Electric, 1 - 14 yr old Sure microphone, also use LG HBS-820S Bluetooth headset with laptop
