A minimum of 256MB of RAM is required. However, since Symphonic Instrument loads samples (or a portion of the samples) into the computer's RAM add as much RAM as possible to your computer; at least 1024 MB (1 GB) is highly recommended. Note: MSI version 1.1 allows samples to be streamed directly from disk thus freeing up RAM.
A large hard drive (preferably at least 40 GB). See below for Mac and Windows specific hard drive requirements.
iLok USB key which must be purchased separately. iLok NOT included.
An available USB port for the iLok USB key. Note that if you have multiple products which use iLoks for authorization you can consolidate multiple authorizations onto a single iLok.
A CD/DVD disk drive for installation.
A G4 500 MHz Power Macintosh or faster, with G4 800 MHz or faster preferred. A G5 or Intel-based Mac is recommended (MSI 1.1.2 or later is required for Intel Mac support); dual processor machines are also highly recommended.

An audio sequencer software package that hosts MAS, AU, VST, or RTAS/HTDM instrument plug-ins. As MSI has 34 outputs (stereo main outs + 16 stereo aux outputs), the host needs to support instruments with greater than 32 outputs. Alternatively, MSI can be used as a standalone application.
An 800MHz Pentium III-based PC compatible or faster.
MSI 1.0 requires Windows 2000 or XP; MSI 1.1 and later require Windows XP or later.
