I have a P4 2.4 ghz with 1gb RAM and I'm pleased with the performance but I whenever I have to work with stylus RMX with more than 3 or 4 channels the pc begins to lose horsepower and I have to bounce the audio.
I understand that the minimum req for RMX is 1gb of RAM so I was thinking of upgrading to 2gb.
I believe that when working with vst's RAM is more important than cpu but whenever I'm working with RMX the cpu meter raises up to 40-50%.
So the question I'm asking is - Is the cpu more important than RAM? Should I upgrade it too?
40-50% on a single RMX instance? Of course it's possible to turn on a large number of effects and drive the cpu usage up, but 40-50 would be somewhat unusual, so check out the FAQs for tips on reducing cpu usage.
In any case, adding RAM is always a good idea, so I'd do that before upgrading your cpu.
