Here is my Netbook studio. It’s a ASUS N10 Netbook with 2GB ram and a 320 GB HD. I’m running Live 6 with a ton of VST plugins including Atmosphere, Xphraze, NI Complete 5 as well as Virtual Guitarist. Hardware includes 2 Korg nano controllers a M-Audio Transit USB audio interface and a Blue Snowflake mic. It’s a great little writing machine you just have to freeze tracks to keep the performance up.
