Surface Sessions S3 02 – First run of music software on Surface Pro 2017

Posted on Posted in Article

How well does music software run on a Surface Pro (2017) out of the box? Using the onboard sound I tested Reaktor, Cubase, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Bitwig Studio, Reason and Waveform to see if they can run glitch free. This is without any tweaking or setup – just install and go! I think you’ll find this very interesting. More detailed testing, benchmarking and music making to come….

  1. Hi. Your tests and reviews are amazing. What a great service.

    I’m an iPad Air 2 user for mobile work, but seriously considering SP 2017 i7 for editing video and audio while out of studio.
    (My studio PC is a Dell T5500.)

    Would you mind testing Magix Samplitude Pro X3 Suite? I know – easy to ask!

    Thanks!

      1. Just lack of knowledge of the Surface’s power and drivers. My Dell T5500 is dual quad core. It’s old, but powerful. Not sure how the new Surface’s technology measures up against that.
