Currently, as things stand, any of you can live perfectly with a PC under Windows 10 (and most companies). The latest 1903 version has improved a lot and Renoise works perfectly on it. In addition, it is currently possible to get an original license for this operating system at a really ridiculous price (less than € 2). By the way, I have nothing to do with Microsoft.
With more reason you have to move. Lately we are reaching totally absurd situations of totally exorbitant prices for everything. DAWs with prices for the clouds (see Pro Tools, and above changing to pleasure), VSTi with totally excessive prices (there are many examples), even more and more expensive hardware devices. Today having and maintaining a home studio is a luxury. All that remained was for operating systems to make it more difficult the coexistence of the software, tso customers must spend more money. And again to hit the wheel.
If Apple causes you so many problems, why don’t you send it to hell? Software developers will be tired of updating for them and having to wait for certain things to be fixed. Having a perfectly viable alternative such as Windows 10.
I understand that Windows 10 is not the ideal operating system, because it is based on maintaining support for previous versions, that is, it is not an operating system designed from scratch, totally new. But it works perfectly, it does not hang, the audio is going well, and Renoise is going perfectly, as well as most DAWs on the market. The audio works perfectly. If there is a problem, it is probably the cause of the brand of the device and its drivers.
Another example off topic. Have you seen what an annual Autocad software license costs? This is software that has been amortized for many years, earning a lot of money. And now the price is exaggeratedly high for everything. Engineering university students will use Autocad. When they have to buy it they think twice. It is not worth going to work to earn money, and then all this type of companies absorb everything… The monthly subscription is ruining many customers.
As long as there are “sheep” customers who continue to buy from this kind of companies, price abuses will continue.
Then another joke matter. Have you seen those youtubers who show in their videos the legion of VSTi instruments and libraries that are worth a lot of money? Have you made calculations of how much money all that is worth? Is incredible.
Now think about this whole context. Are you still at Apple?
