SSL Soundscape V6 and the SSL MX4 PCIe Card will run on virtually any recent Windows PC with a free PCIe Slot.
It is tested on Windows XP, Vista (32Bit and 64 Bit) and Windows 7 (32 Bit and 64 Bit) with at least 2GB of RAM.
In order to get most out of the SSL Hybrid Core Processing audio engine, we recommend you use branded and superior components for Motherboards, CPU, PSU and RAM.
The more CPU Cores you have, the better the performance.
