Computers are used for almost anything these days. Do you see music production as just one more thing your computer does, or do you have a special studio computer that is tweaked just the way you like it and isn't used for anything else?
Each Tuesday we open our mic to readers and lurkers alike to come out of the woodwork and tell us your thoughts and opinion, your experiences and mistakes, what you love and what you hate. We want to hear from you, and here’s your chance.
Do you have one main computer that you use for everything—email, chatting, surfing, games and music production? Do you find that an effective solution, or is it mainly to save money? Is is it a space issue—you don't have room for more than one computer? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this approach?
Or do you have a dedicated computer just for music production? How have you tweaked it to make it a more effective musical tool? Are you using special hardware or peripherals? Do you ever use it for anything else? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this approach?
