What job can it do when working with DAWs?

1 Answer 1

  • less tracks per project.
  • less plugins opened.
  • if you use your factory soundcard (the one on your motherboard) you'll probably suffer from latency and a bad signal/noise ratio.

But you still can definitely work with it (music, mixing, and even small movie project(s)).

FYI : when a computer is too limitated for your work, don't forget you can always render your track(s) into audio files to reprocess them (destructive treatment).

    You can render/bounce to audio for playback, but keep the original track & disable it, so you can change your mind later, or open it all up again on a bigger mix machine. Cubase has a freeze function which will easily do that inline, idk about other DAWs.
