Title What kind of computer do I need to use Cubase?
Abstract Is your box up to the task of running Cubase? Here's what kind of horsepower you'll need.
Updated for Cubase 4 * Mac OS X Version 10.4 * Power Mac G4 1 GHz or Core Solo 1.5 GHz * 512 MB RAM * Display Resolution 1024x768 pixels * DVD drive required for installation * CoreAudio compatible audio hardware * USB port required for Steinberg Key (copy protection device)* * Internet connection required for license activation * Windows XP Home or XP Professional * Pentium/Athlon 1.4 GHz * 512 MB RAM * Windows DirectX compatible audio hardware (ASIO compatible audio hardware recommended for low latency performance) * Display resolution 1024x768 * DVD-ROM drive required for installation * USB port required for Steinberg Key (copy protection device)* * Internet connection required for license activation

I will add that I would recommend at least 1GB of Ram. Two hard drives will also help performance. One for OS and Cubase, a second for saving the audio files you record. Also, please do yourself a favor and make a recording specific ASIO audio hardware device a requirement for your system.
