Speed Up Your Workflow Exponentially!
Multiple computer monitors allow you to be more productive and stay focused.
Even as I write this, I’m using three computer monitors. (One for writing, one for seeing how it looks on this website, then another for code/research of products I’ve been sharing with you throughout these lessons.)
Even when it comes to FL Studio, you won’t feel you have to close every window.
Back in the day, I used to have a four monitor set-up. (But two monitors minimum will help you tremendously.)
This was the ultimate set-up because I could have one screen for my mixer, one screen for the playlist, one screen for the step sequencer, and then one screen for any VSTs/plugin windows.
Here’s what I suggest in a monitor:
- Make sure all monitors are the same size. (If not, dragging windows around from monitor to monitor gets annoying because of different screen size.)
- Bigger screens allow more content to be shown.
I don’t have any recommended brands etc, but you can start looking here on Amazon.
