Objectively, out of the box MacOS is better for music production. To get approximately the same experience on Windows you need to buy a dedicated sound card and install third party ASIO drivers and third party MIDI drivers. And even then, it's still not as good in every aspect, but it can be as good, or even better, for your use case.Bulbizarre wrote: ↑Tue Sep 14, 2021 5:01 amAll in the title ! Anyone using MAC here ? How do you feel about a switch from Windows to MAC ? I heard it's more practical to manage projects and tidy things up on MAC.
Also I find it interesting to have a computer dedicated to production in order to avoid distraction (which I'm terrible at), for some random reason it looks like so many people use a MAC for this. I'm a Live user.
But Windows has its own objective advantages too. Better backwards compatibility, a ton of software of all kinds, lots of hardware choices...
So it's not easy to say which is better overall, they each have strengths and weaknesses.
For someone who's not computer savvy and just wants to make music and not deal with any technical stuff, I'll recommend Mac any day.
If OTOH you don't mind learning to tinker with your computer a little bit, if you like the extra flexibility and more hardware and software choices, use Windows.
Not forced at all, if you turn them off. The only difference is that in Windows 10 the switch to disable them is more hidden than it was in previous versions.
There are many things to complain about with Windows 10 (ads, UI...), but forced updates is not one of them. But again, it requires the user to know how to change a setting or two and to check for updates manually when needed... which goes back to my previous point about having to be a bit more tech savvy to manage Windows.
