I've done some research and even though it's impossible to be crash-proof this is probably as close as it gets-
Serato running on a Macbook pro with a solid state HD. nothing installed on the boot drive except Serato (for everything else I boot off an external drive). I use Itch which only works with specific dedicated soundcards so no problems with incompatibility there.
definetly gonna clean out the laptop i used, for next time.. think that was the biggest problem really, to much things running that have nothing to do with what youre doing.
maybe one day ill have a mac, though i did see macs crash as well at gigs.. they probably didnt do all that though.
