The idea of having additional horsepower available via external DSP to run whatever plugins you want might seem like an ideal solution for many modern recording engineers. However, computers have become extremely powerful and plugin developers are constantly improving their software to be more CPU efficient. The combination of these two things means that today’s computers can handle more audio plugins than ever before. So do you really need external DSP?
Recording music is more mobile than ever as technology continues to advance. Many people find themselves setting up shop at a friend’s house, busses, stages, or at home away from the studio. You never know when the moment is going to strike and you’re looking to hit record. The need for recording in the studio is a thing of the past. Take your studio with you and record wherever inspiration hits.
