The place for producers to discuss methods and equipment.

I was trying to find this answer a few days ago and couldn't find a solid one. I have a gaming PC and I would like to get into music production. I am just wondering if it is the right kind of computer to use or if I even can. Anyone know? I am brand new to this.
I don't see why not. The whole point of a gaming PC is to handle multiple media tasks so it should do just fine my friend. You can look up your specs and compare them if you'd like but I am sure it is perfectly fine. Just make sure you have enough memory.
Memory is usually where people mess up. Anyone I talk to about computers always recommends a solid SSD drive be it a PC or laptop.
That is another good point. External ones are great for music and safer so long as you take care of it. I know someone who lost tons of music and videos cause he kept it on his desk and spilled something on it.
Oh yea man. Stick with the gaming PC. Once you finsh your tasks, you can just play a few games on it afterwards lol. It's what I work on, and my PC costed me like $400. Not like, the best thing ever, but its got enough memory, and decent RAM and stuff to do what I need it to do.
Gonna make it one day, believe me.
