Re: What is the best fan controller software for PC?

That's a laptop chip I believe.
So if you have a prebuilt system, it's possible that it won't be compatible with 3rd party tools.
That used to be my experience with Speedfan and laptops many years ago.

Re: M1 Max Internal SSD Speeds vs Ext SSD?

Latency is generally more important than bandwidth when it comes to reading a lot of small randomly read files.
But I would still expect the internal drive to be faster usually.
As for how this relates to your CPU usage figures, I don't know.

Re: Are you using that RAM, sonny?

CPU-Z will tell you a bunch of useful things: The CPU model. How much RAM is installed. The speed that the RAM is actually running at currently. The ratings for each individual RAM stick. The aim is to run the memory at the maximum speed that the CPU officially supports with the lowest latency setti...

Re: Korg 700s FS.

I don’t care what revision synths you have, but for a chopper it has to be a mk1. There isn’t enough brandy in the world to make me buy a mk2. :) Although in practice, I wouldn’t even give you a four pack of babycham to be able to use a mk1. My body is too fragile for such basic forms of transport....

Re: Korg 700s FS.

Very heavy and 3 speed gears wasn’t a great combination. But for chillin’ in da hood, much more fun than a racing bike. Great for a bit of dirt biking also. Racing bikes are for transport only in my eyes, when you need to go as fast as you can. Although I don’t like the riding position or the lack o...

I read it as being her also.
I can’t get that thought out of my head now. ;)

Re: Korg 700s FS.

I’d rather a Mk1 Chopper. Well, for about 30 seconds or so until I realise how poor it is versus a modern mountain bike. I loved mine and with the long seat I did some off roading with a mate behind me. The adjustable handlebars were great and I set mine with an angle of about sixty degrees or less ...

Re: Powering USB devices, MacBook.

Is something like this from Anker any good? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07YZ48HCT/ It plugs directly into the two ports on the Air (recent version(s) only!) and passes power through. So at least you only require one power brick to run everything. When I first came across it, it was on offer...

Re: Apple unveil Mac Studio and Studio Display

You can file this under “a little knowledge is a very dangerous thing!” The irony. Try using Kontakt with a very large orchestral template and come back and tell me what sort of read bandwidth you are getting. Keep in mind that even a PCIe 4.0 SSD will typically have a best case scenario random rea...

Re: Apple unveil Mac Studio and Studio Display

There are so many clear tests of apple silicon outperforming similar Intel systems by huge margins. I’m not going to bother finding them for you. Pete at Scan does benchmark DAWs which is useful in comparing Intel v AMD, although not sure if those specific tests also run on macOS. Actual DAW tests ...
