Hey so I finally got around to recording with superior drummer and pod UX1 into reaper and my computer did not like it at all. Reaper kept lagging randomly while recording and eventually crashes. It seems like my computer just cant handle that much shit going at once.
My question is will getting more ram help or do I just need to get a new computer? Here are the specs
700gb hard drive
I'm no expert but i don't think extra ram would help. You would either have to increase the audio latency in your DAW to make it stable or get a faster CPU. In your case, i'd say mess with the audio latency and use OS optimization tweaks for DAWs.

Title says its for sonar but the OS tweaks are pretty general for DAW optimization.
