    Is my DAW powerfull enough for GS3 ?

    Hi all

    i have just upgraded my 2nd PC to the following specs. My main recording DAW is much more powerfull running SX3 but i am unsure if this second Pc running GS3, kontakt, intakt is powerfull enough....if not i need to make urgent changes. I run very large libraries like EAST WEST choirs,ra,gold stormdrm etc and also GS3 (old lady and many others)

    thanks in advance

    I think it depends on whether you use GigaPulse and other effects on the 2nd PC.

    You have just barely enough processing to run a piano with GigaPulse modeling of pedal up and down resonance. Or... you can run two ambience instances, and maybe three. I believe that the Intel mobos are usually pretty efficient, so you are probably okay.
