Music is a moral law,
it gives wings to the mind,
a soul to the universe,
flight to the imagination,
a charm to sadness,
a life to everything

    Certainly more than 256MB! Or even 512. I wouldn't think of running Sonar with less than 1GB, myself...I noticed a definite improvement when I went from 1GB to 2GB.

    Well, if they figure a 1.3 GHz CPU can handle Sonar 7, my 3GHz should still do the job. Not ready for a major H/W upgrade just yet.

    RAM is relatively cheap while on th subject. You shoul upgrade to at least two if you are going to be using dimension or any other samplers especially.

    Tthat's exactly why I did that--Dimension, Kontakt, etc. And, like I said, a noticeable improvement.
