Surface Pro Audio Performance Comparison – SP6 – SP2017 – SP4

Posted on Posted in Article

 

Three generations of the Surface Pro’s pitted together in this comparison of audio performance, plug-in counts and virtual instrument polyphony. These are i5, 8GB versions of the Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 2017 and Surface Pro 6. What’s the difference in real-world music production terms? I’m using Cubase 10, Ableton Live 10 and Reason 10 to compare projects and how well they run.
