    Question Will GPO work with these specs?

    Re: Will GPO work with these specs?

    I think you'll do okay. The HD RPM will not hurt GPO since it streams from RAM during playback. It might take it a little longer to load the samples into RAM, but once there they will stream fine.

    I had a desktop that was a P3 1 Ghz with 512 MB of RAM and I could get, dunno, about 3 or 4 instances loaded and playing back.

    If worst comes to worst, you can always limit the polyphony of any particular instrument (like the timpani, bass drum, etc.) to get you by until you can render the songs.

    Of course, if this is for sketching, then it all depends on how much you are willing to bounce to audio.

    Heath,

    The minimum specs call for 1.8 Ghz processor and 1 GB RAM. The updates even call for more. However, if you want to run less than a full orchestra you may be okay, but proceed at your own risk.

    Thanks again. Looks promising.

    GPO allows two installations.
    I just thought I would chime in here too

    I guess I could upgrade the lappy's ram, but will my current Pentium M Centrino be enough?

    And finally... can you tell me how many computers are licensed for GPO? Naturally I'd like to port stuff between the laptop and my main DAW.

    I'm running on a 1.6 Ghz Centrino with 1GB of Ram and it blows away my 3 Ghz P4. IIRC, the 1.6 Centrino is supposed to run equivalent to a 2.4-2.6 P4.
