How much extra...
Sujet How much extra processing power does MIDI require?
I currently run VDJ Pro BASIC on a PENTIUM 4 powered laptop with 2GB of ram.
As long as I don't use video, the system is rock solid, even using FX and scratching with the mouse.
I want to upgrade to the full version because I want to buy a Numark V7. BUT someone told me that running the MIDI to use the V7 will drag my laptop to the ground. I have already partially experienced this when using the ipod touch app as performance gets sketchy.
I'm budgeting for a new laptop next year, but I want the V7 now. But I will wait, if the setup won't be reliable on my PENTIUM 4.
Has anyone seen a performance drag on low power processors using MIDI?
Does using MIDI really require such extra horsepower?
Thanks in advanced for the responses.

A Pentium 4 is unlikely to be fast enough.
