Computer specifications for running Live

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

You can check the minimum system requirements to get an idea of what computer specs are needed to run Live.

If you plan to create large sets with many plug-ins you would likely benefit from higher specs for optimal performance.

We also recommend checking that any audio interfaces, external hardware, or third party plug-ins you plan to use are supported on your current system.

If you are working in a studio environment or with complex productions, you can further optimize performance with a multiple hard drive setup.
