Even though its only a home studio. The studio needs an upgrade once in a while. Editing 4K video is now standard for all new clips and I found that the latest music software expects a little bit more to power it.
Even though the latest new hardware really is not that much faster than a few years ago, there have been advances in power usage as well. This not only translates into a more climate friendly studio, but also in less background noise in the studio from the fans cooling it. This all resulted in a few weeks of silence, but now everything is up and running again!
