With that out of the way, my name is Dexxter Clark and I’ll tell you more about computers and computer hardware for producing in this video.
First of all it is important to know if you want to work with Windows or Mac.
If you are on a tight budget and want to have more value for you money, choose a pc with windows.
If you want to have something that looks cool and something that is twice as expensive, choose a mac.
I myself prefer the MacOS operating system over windows, because the workflow is somewhat nicer and (what i said) it just looks cool.
Some things like printing and making backups is works just better on a mac
And professionals want to be taken seriously and therefore choose a mac (and then some install windows on it).

If you want to work with Logic, you don’t have a choice, you need a mac.
And if you want to work with Fruity Loops you need a PC.
But software like Ableton Live and Presonus Studio One have PC and Mac versions.
What is important?
The holy pair of speed in the early days was processor and memory.
Nowadays it is CPU and SSD.
The amount of memory is not THAT important anymore and especially for music production.
1) processor, Intel Core i7 with much cores
As you may know, with music production, plugins like synthesizers, reverbs and analysis plugin are a pretty hefty task for the processor.
Complicated mathematical formula's need to be calculated to get your sound.
To produce a simple square wave, with just ONE oscillator with additive synthesis, THIS complicated formula needs to be calculated a few times a second.
You can imagine what it does to your processor with 2 oscillators, let alone with multiple voices (which are in fact extra oscillators).

Responsible for those calculations is the processor, or CPU.
The quicker the CPU, the more calculations it can do in a second without having any dropouts and that annoying message in Logic.

With CPU’s the number of GHZ is important , rule of the thumb: the higher the better, but a slower cpu can deliver more power than a faster one.
Yes you heard it right: a faster CPU with more GHZ can be slower than a slower CPU with less GHZ.
CAN, I don't say that it IS, because it is depending on a lot of factors.
