Computer system requirements:

Below are the minimum computer system requirements for UC Surface, QMix-UC, and Studio One®.

Mac

  • macOS® 10.11 or higher (64-bit only)
  • Intel® Core ™ 2 Duo processor (Intel® Core i3 or faster recommended)
  • 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Windows

  • Windows® 7 x64 SP1 + platform update, Windows 8.1 x64, Windows 10 x64
  • Intel Core 2 Duo (Core i3 or faster recommended)
  • 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Mac and Windows Systems

  • USB 2.0 port
  • Internet connection
  • Internal or external 7200 RPM storage drive
  • 30 GB hard disk space
  • Monitor with 1366×768 resolution

iOS

  • iOS 10 or later
  • iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini with Retina display, iPad (4th generation)

Android

  • Android ™ 5.0 (Lollipop) or later
  • Android smartphone (QMix-UC)
  • Android tablet (8-inch) with 1024×768 resolution (UC surface)
Note: The minimum system requirements may be different for DAWs other than Studio One. Please check the requirements for your DAW of choice with its manufacturer.
Note that this is the speed of your processor, the amount of RAM and the size of your harddrive will increase the overall performance of your recording system. So, a more powerful system (faster processor with more RAM) will allow for lower latency (signal delay) than you might experience.
