Computer specifications for running Live

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

You can check the minimum system requirements to understand the computer specs 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.
