PINEBOOK Pro suitable for audio?

Postby mendo » Wed Jul 31, 2019 12:21 am

Hello,

do you think this new device is suitable, performance-wise, for audio stuff?


I would use it for DJ, some MIDI stuff in Ardour & Bitwig, maybe LMMS.
Definitely no harcore linuxsampler or DrumGizmo...

Appreciate your input if this is powerful enough or just yet another electric waste device...

the company also plans a Linux based tablet :D

Thanks.

Since that machine has an ARM CPU it might get compared with the most powerful Raspberry Pis, so you might ask Pi users in the Raspberry Pi section.

maybe, i suggest you pick up an old laptop for the same price which can handle AVlinux and its processor heavy preempt realtime kernel, along with capacity for a 1 tb ssd
