Got N3 & N4 - Should I install N4?

Post by karl » Thu Jul 25, 2019 3:01 pm

I'm a happy user of N3. As support for N3 will be dropped in the foreseeable future, I bit the bullet and got myself N4 at a discount to be on the safe side for future projects.

Is there any advantage of N4 over N3? Should I even install it now? Or should I keep N3 until I can't use it anymore?

As of now, I don't see much use in N4 over N3. Allegedly N4 needs more processing power. I can do without that.

maybe install besides N3 to get used to it?
and test around a little how it works, what is new, maybe compare same libs in N3 and N4 if there is a sound difference.

so when you start to use it at one point, you will be familiar with it.

just some thoughts thrown in ... :)
system 1: windows 8 32 bit - samplitude pro x3, waveform 9 (tracktion), reaper
system 2: mac osx el capitan - reaper(64bit), waveform 9 (64bit), mixbus 6

both systems on: macbook pro (late 2009), core 2 duo 3,06 ghz, 4 gb ram, graphic: nvidia geforce 9600M GT 512 MB
