Hi -

For what it's worth, I'm running Sonar 7 Studio on a 2.4 Pentium with 1 gig of RAM. It runs well though I don't push it too hard. I am thinking of doubling the RAM to 2 gig but I'm not sure yet what that will buy me .... perhaps the ability to run more plug-ins simulataneously.

I upgraded from Sonar 3 to Sonar 7 on the same machine and it works fine. I have heard (don't know for sure) that Sonar 7 is not "more demanding" of the PC than version 6 but I don't know this as a fact.

Sonar 7 will probably run, but you won't be able to load and work on big projects. What you could do is go over to the Cakewalk web site and download the Sonar 7 demo and check that out. That should allow you to see how Sonar 7 will run on your machine.

Getting started and comfortable with the software takes a while Depending on what level you would like to go will take some sorting out. Ram requirements add so a 2 gig system plus a big box set will mean a little more to a lot more ram to run with out trouble. It is possible to get started on a small scale and carefully plan you move up. Just be sure to find out what is recommended for the software you do chose and what you add later. A reputable dealer in such packages as DAW's and related software can guide you if you know where you want to go with it. I would establish a relationship with a dealer because after a few purchases we should go that extra mile for you.

Love to make that music,as well I love to tweak,Make my own sample sets
