asked Mar 15, 2017 in Studio One 2 by mhh1249 (150 points)
I've had Studio One Professional for as long as I've had my 2011 MacBook Pro.  Unfortunately, the video portion of the logic board keeps failing,so I'm switching to a PC.  I've read similar questions about Studio One 3 transfers, but still have these questions: 1) Do I reload 2.0 on the PC with my product key then download the 2.6.5 version from your website?  2) What compatibility issues should I expect?  3) If I buy the Studio One 3 upgrade, should I do that after loading 2.6.5 on the PC? 4) Finally, my Mac has an i7 processor and 4 Gigs of RAM.  I upgraded to 8 Gigs and noticed a sizable jump in the through-put capability.  If I purchase a PC with an i5 core processor (not i7) but retain 8 Gigs of RAM, will this be adequate or a giant step backwards in terms of through-put and latency settings?  Thanks in advance.

You are not going to have any significant issues by shifting over to a PC from a Mac. We would suggest that if you use any third party plugins, that you make sure that they are compatible with your newPC/OS.

You may need to do some optimizing to your PC, just to make sure that your PC operates and is geared more towards audio recording and or production.
