Hello guys, my name is Dexxter Clark and I do reviews, vlogs and tutorials about DJing and music production What is better for music production? Mac Or Windows? If the PC is so great, why are a lot of music producers using the iMac for their music production? And vice versa. In this video I’ll dig into the pros and cons of both operating systems, so you can make an educated decision on what’s best for you The mac vs pc, fight! This video was sponsored by my Patreon members if you like you can support me for as low as 1 dollar a month the ancient dispute: the Mac vs the PC But to look at the situation nowadays it is maybe really useful to look at the beginning of electronic music production with a computer back in the days Mac was more suited for music production.
The tools were just better The software was better, the interface was better, the processor was quicker Because Apple had a much more simplified approach to the matter at hand it was much more easier to stay in that creative flow the pc users were fiddling with their IRQs to make their Soundblaster Pro Live 16 work and shout at Windows for giving a blue screen because of the wrong con figuration The music producers on the Apple side were happy fiddling with their melodies already That’s why a lot of old generation music producers still use Mac But a lot has changed over the last 10,15 years Apple switched to Intel processors which made immediately the Mac as fast as the PC And there were DAWs developed for Windows and Mac So there were two versions. So everything you could do on Windows, you can do on a Mac and vice versa. So the main reason why you should buy an Apple is gone. I was a pretty big Apple fan but Apple has become such a weird company lately with smartphones that really can’t keep up with the competition but they charge you 200 or 300 euro more than the previous model And their butterfly keyboards on the MacBook Pro’s break all the time When it comes to a new computer, because my old one is slow… Should I buy an Apple again? But before we can call a winner: Windows or Mac It’s really important to look at your DAW. There are certain DAWs that only work on certain operating systems for example: Logic works only on a Mac and Sonar works only on Windows So base your first decision on that if you have to stay compatible with your old projects Unless you want to switch DAW off course Bare in mind that VST plugins and AAX plugins are available for Windows and Mac But the AU versions (the Audio Unit plugins) are not available on Windows.
That is Mac only. So if you have a plugin that only works with Audio Unit versions you have to find an alternative or buy another license for that plugin that can be a time consuming or a costly operation There are music producers out there that are claiming that certain genres of music are better produced on a Mac personally I don’t see why because most DAWs are cross platform nowadays and even then, DAWs can basically do the same thing maybe the way you are getting there is different if you have a well thought throug argument why that should be the case, I love to know, put it down in the comments below. By the way I made a special video about music production software for beginners I will also link it in a card above and in the description Regretfully choosing a Mac or PC for music production isn’t as black-and-white anymore as it used to be So what I did for this video:
I determined a couple of categories and in a certain category, for me, there is a clear winner So if you determine which categories are the most important to you You can make a more educated decision on whats best for you Money, money, money Definitely money wise you are better of with a PC for about 1500 euro you can build a really big PC specced out to the max and you have top of the bill On the Apple side you pay at least 3000 to 5000 euro for the same computer So definitely you are better off (money wise) with a pc Flexibility, yeah, definitely the PC What you can do: you can buy some basic components and add or change components later on when you have more money What you can do for example: if you struggle to pay for a proper size SSD buy a spinning platter drive or use your old platter drive temporarily in your new computer you can invest heavily in a proper CPU and a motherboard.
Then later, add memory and add a proper monitor and add a proper size SSD and you can buy your computer exactly to the specifications you want so not a manufacturer deciding your you which components are in your computer If you don’t know how to build a computer yourself go to a specialized computer store with the knowledge to do so Connections. yeah, definitely a pc. for example, if you don’t have enough USB connections on your computer, you can buy an extension card that save you a suitcase full of dongles and USB hubs Power. again the PC Apple focusses more on thinness of their products in which they do concessions in the amount of power that product can produce so, thermal throttling for example is a big issue on Apple products because they can’t be properly cooled, because of their thinness. Als the expandability of a pc makes it infinitely more powerful then aesthetics, yeah, I have to give that one to Apple most of the time Apple products look nicer than their pc counterparts not only hardware, but also the software space. Well, I think it’s the Mac. Most of the time (there are pc alternatives out there) but most of the time, their all-in-one solutions for example the desktop computer will take up less space, than their pc counterparts. then the operating system (the user interface) to be honest, that is a personal preference for me at least it’s Mac OS because I like how things are solved in Mac OS. Making a backup for example. Every doofus that has the capacity in his brain to connect a USB device has the capacity to make a backup of his computer with windows, it’s a totally different story when I look at some ugly solutions in Windows, for example that big old lumpy Register which makes your computer terribly slow after a while what is still a problem in the current version of Windows. And when I look at printing problems, for example with Remote Desktop for example. it’s still a problem in Windows. Why didn’t you fix that over the last 20 years? Usability when it comes to drivers I have to give that one to the Mac.
A lot of equipment you can plug into the Mac and it just works without installing anything When I plug in my 2i2 in the Mac, that is a Focusrite soundcard it just works without installing a driver when I plug it in in Windows, I have to download the driver. sigh. that ASIO story, come on guys why do you have to make it so difficult on the other hand, in Windows there are more devices supported than on the Mac.
If the Mac doesn’t recognize it you have most of the time a problem. compatibility and reliability I have to give that one to the Mac Apple tests their products, they work really well together a with a PC that has yet to be seen. but, on the other hand, Apple dropped the ball on that a couple of times A well built pc can be as reliable as a Mac but it doesn’t have to be with weaker components. the more expensive components are most of the time, the more quality components A pc is only as strong as it’s weakest link or it’s weakest component for the noob, I think you are better off with a Mac A Mac has less possibilities in the software, but also if you want to buy a Mac, there are less options to choose from If you just want a computer that works choose a Mac.
The PC has more options it has more expandibility but, that can a lso be much more confusing. Fixability. Definitely the PC When a computer breaks after a couple of years
(which is the danger zone for a computer) can you fix it?
Well with a Mac:
if it breaks, it breaks big time. and probably not much you can do about it with a PC: you can probably switch components if it’s not the holy pair of motherboard and CPU. And as a music producer, if your are on your computer and something breaks it’s really necessary that you can swap components if something breaks. Then you are up and running in no time Security, well, that definitely is the Mac Although Apple has dropped the ball multiple times when it comes to security and Microsoft has increased their security tremendously in Windows over the last couple of years there are more malware and virusses out there for Windows than on the Mac for example: that machine, I have already 7 years and I have yet to have a virus or malware on my computer A quick overview of this comparison, you can find in the description below also, when you have a well thought through argument, that the rest can’t miss out on Please leave it down in the comment section below also, don’t forget to like, subscribe and hit the bell and I love to see you in my next video
hey guys I just wanted to do a quick
review of Arkmc this is a program that I found that is really helpful because it
allows me to play media off of the NAS my network attached storage and I don’t
have to have a cable or any special device or anything hooked up to my TV so
behind me what you see is my Samsung 50-inch TV it’s about three years old
nothing special to it but what this system allows me to do is to use my WD
my cloud which is behind the camera and stream videos directly off that onto my
Samsung TV from anywhere in my house and I can do it without any cables so it’s
great if you’re looking to clear up some space on your computer or if you just
want to be able to play things from multiple rooms this is really helpful so
I’m just gonna walk you through and just show you how quick and easy it is so
first thing I’m gonna do here is actually open up Arkmc
itself and what you’ll see here is that when you first open it up you are going
to have the folder for where the media is and so this allows you to choose
media that’s local to your Mac or if you’re like me and you have the media on
a device like a na s then you’re able to do that and then select it so all I’m
gonna do is just open this up and then all of my video files show up and what
I’m gonna do here is just add this to the playlist really simple easy what’s
nice about this is you can create a sequence of videos that you want to play
I see this as being really valuable in business as I was going through it I was
just thinking about all the different uses because it’s really helpful so I’m
just going to add it to playlist there and then when it’s on the playlist all I
have to do is just hit Send a player and so by hitting send a player now what
happens is that I can actually play it directly on my Mac or I can play it on
the TV here boom it just pops right up all you have
do is just click it again and it’ll just show right up really quick and simple to
use and again really helpful because you no longer have to have the device or the
media on your laptop now you can actually have it on an NAS and you can
play it from anywhere in your house or in your business and you can add a
playlist so great little program here and I highly recommend that you try it
out especially because of the free trial it’s a great value and I think that
you’re going to end up buying the activation code so check it out
