The problem is the ultra-wide resolution more than the size, I feel…
I do not want to confuse anyone with my comments. The problem is not the screen, it’s Renoise. I think this 34" screen and with this resolution (1440 high) is perfect for this times (now), if you want a higher resolution, you will have to get a very powerful graphics card to move it in games and certain programs. that has 144HZ, make sure to find an appropriate graphic card, that can move you up to those 144Hz, otherwise it’s like throwing money (144Hz screens are not cheap either).
From my point of view, you only have to look at 2 things, correctly match your future monitor with the graphics card that you are going to use. If Renoise has an “outdated” GUI, you just have to pray that Taktik returns after investing his time in Sononym.
For example, buying a 4K monitor of a few inches (less than 34 ") is crazy, so I opted for “something above 1080” and that does not require so much graphic power. Apart from composing I use my PC for everything, also to play.
On the other hand, G-Sync monitors are more expensive still (they include that additional technology). So the issue is to match it with the graphics card, and that the set returns the frames you need.
I do not care too much about to buy a “old” model, as long as it meets the requirements. Once you buy it, there is no turning back. The LG 32GK850G-B is a good model, but it’s about € 700. I play in another league.I bought the second-hand graphic card, because I can not afford such luxuries.
Deep down I was looking for more workspace for multiple uses, and with Renoise, just missing a new version for high resolutions. With the “tricks” that I mentioned before I manage to work with my monitor of 34". If I had bought a 4K I would be sorry, by the way, the 21: 9 format is my best choice, in fact I recommend it for games, you will feel more “immersed inside” them.
I just want to summarize that the problem here is not the sizes of monitors or their resolutions or formats, but the software we use, such as Renoise. The software must adapt to these things, precisely because there is a variety of choice.
Another subject. I’m creating a light-colored Renoise skin that appering in the superior capture. I’m getting better results than with a dark skin.All this is causing me to review my latest tools to “make them compatible” with slightly larger fonts. From now on I will use the fonts two points above.
Look at the monitor well. I was going to buy an LG, and I ended up with a Samsung. There are new models that do not even appear in the catalogs of the brand in your language. Touch the find very well internet. For example, the monitor that I have purchased is not on the large surfaces. For some reason there they do not want to sell it. I would say that the stores want to get rid of the available stock before selling new models to avoid competing with the existent stock.
I have always thought that this of the LED monitors is a bit “scam”. Most monitors very slow, many are sold with dead pixels, the hertz are an excuse to raise the price very hight, the new technologies of graphics cards (G-Sync???) help to raise the price even more. In the end, monitors that should cost € 400 sell them for € 1000. And I’ve seen people spend € 1000 on a monitor and leave disappointed by light leaks, ghost effects and other problems.
Years ago, CRT monitors that looked luxurious were sold with more than 100Hz, and they were not worth much money. With the graphic cards and monitors there is a lot of marketing behind to keep prices high.And what’s worse, they then sell the products with a 1 or 2 year warranty. That is the confidence that there is of the brands on their products.
Yes, it shows that for me, choosing a monitor may be the component from a PC more complicated to choose.Better to have a lot of patience and choose well.
