    I know very little about the subject, but a friend wants to build a computer for digital recording. Could anyone educate me on what makes a good PC for digital audio recording?

    i have to be honest with u its no so much the computer its the sound card and recording devices u have

    u could build an A64 with 500Gb off hdd space 1Gb of ram and just a standard GFX card but then ur mate would need a digital pro sound card if he is gonna go all the way with it

    My mate has a steinberg pro in his machine and uses all there products as well and he is only running a P2 400 with a raid card and 2x120Gb hdds and his comp controls the mixer and **** the whole lot its a full on pro setup

    also depends if ur mate wants to use MIDI and other features like i said haveing the computer to control the mixing table as well

    i maybe wrong but im going on wat my mate has told me Good luck

    If the computer is anywhere near what your want to record, you will want a *very* quiet computer. With a quality sound card (none of this creative crap).
