Best way to access home PC and run taxing (music) programs?
by NuPokerFace - 3/9/13 3:33 PM
So I've gotten pretty used to working on my laptop and running some music production programs. Now I'm going back to a desktop (apparently more stable for audio), but would really like to keep the mobility of a laptop as I spend hours on hours editing music on my bed, couch, at work, etc. My idea is to get the desktop and connect via wifi, or i guess bluetooth when I'm at home, through my old laptop, or (yet to be purchased) notebook or tablet. I understand there are some apps/ programs that will let you do this.
So, my questions, is it realistic to attempt to do this? All the processing is going to be done on the desktop itself right? I do not want any lag, as the poor performace of my laptop is the main reason I'm going back to a desktop. If you think it will work:
-Should I go tablet or laptop?
-Is there any specific hardware I should look for when buying the desktop, laptop or tablet?
-Also, it would be a home run if I could connect my portable keyboard via usb to whatever mobile device I will be using, although in this I'm sure there will be some lag in response time.
-My home internet router says 54mbps, I'm not sure how accurate this is though. I would say its above average to very good, depends.
Much, much appreciated
