Ask Max: Is The G4 Suitable For Home Audio Recording?

Asked on 09/16/2008:

I want to do some home studio recording. Would a G4 be suitable for this? I'm not sure how fast the processor would need to be, but I would definitely upgrade the RAM.


A G4 will work fine for most audio editing projects, as long as you keep the number of tracks reasonable, and budget for some extra wait time while working on the Pro Tools / Logic projects. A dual processor MDD G4 would be a good choice with its full 2GB limit of RAM. Also consider two extra drives in a RAID 1 configuration to store your project files on. If this is work for a paying client, you”re going to want to make sure it”s backed up.
