    <p>Always interesting to see what professionals use, so thanks for the video. You asked about what your viewers are using, so here goes: a workstation I built a few years ago with an AMD Threadripper 1950x and 32 gig of RAM and an older AMD graphics card, about the same vintage as the processor, and which I don’t remember the model number of. As for software, I too love Affinity Photo, I also use their other apps, Affinity Design and Affinity Publisher. For audio podcasts I use Hindenburg and for video editing Vegas Video. On the audio side I use an Audio Technica USB microphone and their $100 headset, I prefer them to Blue Yeti but for purely personal reasons. Thanks again — and especially for posting on the free side of the paywall!</p>

    <p>I enjoy these type of videos. I’m not into "speed tests" etc. I’m more into does it work and how you like it in daily use. Good video.</p>

    <p>Thanks for the plug for Davinci Resolve. I used to dabble in video a few years ago (mostly using Vegas Movie Studio) and have been thinking about getting back into it. However, what to invest in is a difficult choice – a free professional quality application seems just the thing. I’ll have to try it out.</p>
