Hi I am thinking of getting a Surface go2 (or 3 since yesterday) when Black Friday comes around. Has anyone tried this as a live guitar rig - guitar > usb interface>surface> Bitwig/Cantabile with FX and modulations etc.
I realise a limit on processing will eventually hit, but is that a realistic live rig with a few chained plugins eg pitch shift / delay / reverb / distortions etc

I have no interest at all in getting an ipad or android tablet or a NUC

Should be no problem. The Surface Go doesn't have too much processing power, but, for that purpose, it should be well enough.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.
