My first DAW-computer was in 1998 and was a Pentium II 333 MHz Dell
Dimension. It came with an 8 GB of HDD and that HDD was partitioned into
four 2 GB sections--barely enough for one CD project each. That was due
to the 2 GB limit under Win95. Windows 98 was just coming out with
stability issues. I later upgraded to Win98SE and reformatted the drive
and then added a 60 GB drive.
This machine had a Zefiro digital audio I/O card (using the DAT and CDRW
machines for A-D) all at single rate. I got my first RME Multiface in
2003 with an XP machine.
The 1998 machine had Red Roaster on it and a SCSI Yamaha, if I recall
correctly, CD writer.
So, I've been with Samplitude since the beginning (Red Roaster was the
entry-level of Samplitude at the time)--14 years with the same DAW.
