Building your own music recording and production computer is actually not as daunting as you may think. Sure you could just buy an already-built music production computer on online, but why pay the middle man? This discussion will be all about how to purchase and build your own custom music production PC. We won’t get too deep into the technology, only as far as we need to in order to explain why you need certain components and what they will do for you. Once upon a time the idea of building a music production PC meant buying expensive components, and hoping that they would all be compatible with the parts you bought. Not to mention making sure the computer parts that you’ve bought are compatible with the motherboard you want to attach everything to. Not only that, but you also had to understand MS-DOS in order to just install the software that came along with everything. Nowadays, it’s all “plug and play” and comes with software that’s compatible with Windows.
