Long time lurker, first time poster. The name is Stevie. Love the forum and the community and it is now I feel the first time I require the assistance of the users here.
I have and always will be a strictly hardware only guy using various synthesizers and sequencers without the. Use of computers and DAWs
I spent the last 8 years using an MPC1000 linked with various synths. I actually find the restriction in flexibility can be conducive to creativeness in terms of working out ways to make things happen.
I have replaced my trusty MPC 1000 with a digitakt.
Problem is I don’t actually own a computer.
I understand I need a computer to do OS updates on the digitakt, the electron website says the transfer software needs hardware requirements of 4b of ram and at least an i5 processor
I can’t understand why a basic import/export program would be so needy on computing power.
My question is: would i be able to run elektron transfer on a more primitive system like a mini pc with Intel atom processor and windows 10?
Are any of you guys running the transfer program on systems that are below the stated official requirements?
To clear up the question of: why don’t you just buy yourself a capable computer?
The answer is that there are far too many pieces of hardware (synthesis and sequencers, vintage gear) i would rather own and spend that amount of money on. I spend my entire working day in front of a computer, hence why I love to come away from that environment to press buttons, tweak knobs and slide faders.
P.s I welcome all witty remarks about my love of tweaking knobs lol.
Thanks in advance folks.
Again. Love the place
