That really depends on your cpu...Originally posted by tms13pin
So those of you that do many tracks at once vs. just doing
one or two at a time, what's the largest number of simultaneous tracks you've been able to cut with these various programs?
I'm looking to dump 24-track analog stuff into my computer to mix,
and I need something that can handle that many input tracks
enabled at once, not just a stereo pair. I've got the interfaces,
but haven't tried this out yet as I don't currently have software
such that I can enable 24-tracks simultaneously.
This is an important feature for me, as I still like to do analog
tracking, and could see myself tracking some things in analog and
bouncing them into digi for mixing/dubs.
Can Cubase or Audition (or SONAR) handle this?
Samplitude looks great, but I think it's a bit out of my price
range, unless I can pick up a used copy of 7.x...
I'm using a 2.4 ghz P4. In my current project there are three softsynths, seven midi tracks, and seven audio tracks. The percentage of cpu used floats at 11%-13% with the project loaded but not playing. While playing the usage fluctuates at 14%-17%. The software is Sonar4.Originally posted by tms13pin
Well, my CPU is 2.53 gig, it's plenty fast. I'm more concerned if
any of the software will *allow* me to ARM 24 tracks at once
(anything but pro-tools that is, as I don't have a mac or
Digidesign hardware). Can I actually arm and record multiple
tracks in these programs. I know I can MIX as many as I want,
but I need to capture 24 simultaneously.
