Success Using Cross on a Netbook

So I bought Cross the other day and with that I purchased a back up computer which was a Lenovo Ideapad 1.6 GHz processor, 1GB RAM (soon to be upgraded to 2GB RAM). Express PCI Card to enable Firewire so I can use my Stanton Scratch Amp Sound Card.

Haven't tested it with the U46MKii soundcard as yet.


Cross ran stable, a glitch in audio once or twice after playing for about an hour, which i feel will be corrected with my RAM upgrade. Scratching, not a problem, followed my movements to the T.

So far results look good, even though this netbook will only be used as a backup laptop so it won't see much field use if any.

According to the specifications Mixvibes recommends a Core2Duo for running Cross.... But is somebody here really running Cross on a netbook?

I'm sure timecode won't properly work, but it'd still be interesting...

Thanks!

I even did not get DVS 7 running in timecode mode on my netbook (Atom 1.6GHz, 512MB RAM). Maybe if you have got a more powerful "Netbook" you can get it running in MIDI controller mode but I doubt even this. Timecode nees power.

Cheers,

Steve

I do, I do, I do :lol:

It´s a Celeron Dual-Core w/ 4Gb Ram and optimized for Audio.
With anything else turned off, i can do a 2-track routine @96Samples Buffer. (Loading tracks needs over 128 Samples Buffer not to have glitches though)

P.S.: If you´re really interested in something small with power, you might wanna check out the Acer 1830T.

asus eeepc 10" celeron 900mhz 2gb ram, optimized for audio
running Cross 1.6beta with vinyl timecode @ 512 buffer thru a u-mix44 (it can handle even lower but i feel more comfortable keeping it safer than have problems). yea im no scratch champ with this one but its okay for mixing
