In case there are any computer freaks listening in I thought I’d post the specs of my new PC. The components which make it possible to cope with the huge task of creating this virtual performance are 64GBs of top quality RAM, the high end processor and the super fast Solid State Drives for the operating System and the Sample drives.

Motherboard Asus Prime Z-370-P LGA 1151
Processor Intel core i7-8700K LGA 1151 3.7 GHz
RAM Corsair 64GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666 MHz
Graphics Card ASUS AMD Radeon R5 230 2GB
Audio Card Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) USB AudioInterface
Monitor 1 Samsung SyncMaster S27B350
Monitor 2 Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM
OS Drive Samsung 970 EVO V-NAND M.2 500GB SSD
Samples Drives OCZ Agility3 500GB SSD x 2
Cooling Fan Corsair Hydro Series H80i V2 Liquid Cooler
Power source Corsair RM750x 80 PLUS Gold

The software I use hasn’t changed other than the several updates over the years. Sibelius 8.2 and the Vienna Symphonic Library. I use the VSL Symphonic Cube sample collection. I have not moved on to their newer “Dimension” or “SYNCHRON-ized” sample sets, just too expensive. The main VSL software is the Vienna Ensemble Pro 6 (the virtual mixing console) and MIR Pro (the virtual concert hall where the virtual performers gather).
