Re: mobius on a windows tablet?

For light looping just about anything built in the last 5 years
should be fine.  The amount of memory is more important than
the speed of the processor.  I consider 2GB of RAM the absolute
minimum.  You don’t need much disk.  USB 2.0 is fine if you
have an external audio interface.  If you want to use the internal
audio you’ll need to use ASIO4ALL and the quality won’t be as good.

One problem repurposing old computers is the amount of
crap they’ve accumulated over the years which can impact the
performance of audio applications. It’s best if you can wipe
the disk and start over with a fresh OS install.
