Not unless you need or want to.  I think OSX may be a bit to much for your 
machine and would eat valuable system resources that would best be used 
for looping.

You might want to look at Live, besides being set up for much more 
sophisticated looping scenarios, it also works as a decent VST host and 
comes with a decent reverb as well.  You might want to verify that the PSP 
works with it though, as I've noticed that not all of my plug-ins do.  It 
might be better suited for what you want to do, although Cubase will do it 
too I'm sure.
