I'm a music producer based in Budapest, Hungary. I've been producing house, techno and other electronic music tracks in the last 20 years. Now that sales are very low in music business, especially in not-commercial ones, it's very hard for me to refresh music studio equipment. As I am more of a studio guy, not a very busy DJ, I have got very low amount of money of this, though I've had some top 100 track on Beatport for example.
My main computer in my studio is a now more than 8 years old PC, with a pro soundcard, a product of a now not-existing company. This soundcard only has drivers for Windows XP operating system, therefore I can only use Windows XP, which is now not supported by Microsoft and even the music applications I use.
I'm in a big need of a new computer, which should be a fast, new Macbook Pro and also a new pro external sound card. Also my old analogue synth needs a repair (a Roland Juno 106).
With the new gear, I would be able to continue my work and also to help my fellow producers in their own tracks and in mastering their stuff.
