Note: While these are the absolute minimum requirements needed to run Ableton Live 10, you may need higher specifications in order to work most efficiently.

An external hard drive to store libraries & projects

Here’s the idea: your main computer drive is where your operating system, programs/applications, and plugins are installed. When you record, for instance, an Ableton or Logic session, the audio is being saved onto your main system hard drive. As you begin laying down tracks upon tracks, your system drive is not only operating the software and plug-ins, it is also trying to read and write audio on the same drive. Using your system drive alone may bring you performance problems that you can completely avoid by using an external hard drive.

Separate your internal system drive from the drive that you use for saving audio files. Designate a specific external hard drive as your “Audio Drive”. Whenever you create a new session, save it to your external drive instead. Now, when you record audio it will be writing to one drive while your system drive is free to run Ableton or Logic.

What I love about EMC is the quality of the instructors. They really give you a lot of detailed instructions while being patient and caring about our own pace of learning
