Calculating Processing Power needed for typical project

Post by charliechuck01 » Mon Sep 14, 2020 6:36 am

Is there a way to calculate how much CPU processing power and RAM I’d need for a new computer, by the number of tracks, resolution of audio, number and type of plugins used, and other details about a typical Ableton set? Is there anything that can tell you how much processing power/RAM a particular plugin would need to operate optimally on one track of a certain resolution? Or is there a way to calculate the needed resources of an Ableton set from the CPU load?
