since Propellerhead’s Reason has VST-support on board since version 9.5, I switched back to Reason (By the way: Reason 1.0 made me switch from Fasttracker 2 + Cubase to Reason 1.0 + Cubase )
Quiet since a while I feel like my main audio workstation is lacking of power here and there. Especially browsing through big libraries is a bit slowly - thanks to my audio device, working with complex projects consisting of many VSTs isn’t a problem with ok latencies of about 12-14 ms.
Now I want to upgrade my setup, mainly browsing through libraries should be faster.
Any experiences, which components have the biggest impact in this case?
- CPU: Intel Core i5-3750k (not overclocked, passively cooled)
- RAM: 2 x 8GB Corsair DDR3 1600 (default settings)
- HDD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB (contains program + mostly used sound libraries)
Do you think, a dedicated and faster SSD exclusively for my sound libraries could speed the browsing up? Or would a CPU update (i7-8xxx, Ryzen 7) also result in significantly higher loading times?
