To use capella playAlong you need Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP.
- A Multimedia PC with as high a clock speed as possible and at least 2 GB of memory. capella playAlong is a real-time application and therefore a powerful computer is of great benefit.
- A large enough hard disk to accommodate Wave files.
- A high quality soundcard, although the built in TiMidity synthesizer produces good results.
- A CD burner, although you can create MP3s or send the final Wave files elsewhere for burning.
- A soundcard with completely separate input and output areas, or a further soundcard (possibly external with USB). Make sure that ASIO drivers are supplied with the soundcard.
- A VST Sample player as well as a sound library for an improved sound quality (the capella Vienna Orchestra is recommended).
