ExtremeTech has an article showing you the pieces and the process needed to build a digital audio workstation. This is article three of the series with the other two coming last year so who knows how relevant they still are. In any case if you are thinking about building a digital audio computer to create your tunes then make sure you check this out.
PCs can be the nerve center of your digital entertainment hub. PCs can be the heart of your home media network. And if you’re a musician or aspiring recording engineer, a PC can (and should) be the core of your home studio setup. In the first installment of this ongoing series, we took you through the design decision processes and showed you how to build two different Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) systems. Today we’re here to refine those systems even further, and just as importantly, knock the price of these systems down too.
So if you’ve been waiting to build yourself a DAW system, your waiting is over. Strap yourself in, and take a little trip with us as we show you two recipes for the perfect DAW system.
