It looks like it's time for a new PC. You could get something that woud every piece of hardware over what you have now for less than 5 benjamins.

500Mhz proc is not enough, but it is at least a start. 40G hard drive won't work, and 128M of memory is barely enough to run any music software these days, not to mention actually get any recording done.

Best config is 64 bit processor 3200Mhz or better. At least 1Gb of ram. (better 2Gb) Disk at least 120 Gb and proffesional sound card.

I recommend you cubase 3 software. I didn't try it jet but it has get good rewievs.

I use cubase 2.1

I agree with the 64bit proc, I'd even go further and suggest a 939 socket AMD, since it has dual channel memory.

Another thing you may want to consider, is getting an external firewire or USB (but preferably firewire) soundcard that supports ASIO drivers. If you can wait a while, PCI Express promises to perform the best as far as sound cards are concerned. Having said that, I run with a Terratec Aureon Firewire. I would definitely reccommend it.

Hey, I'm from Delhi.

Your computer configuration dependscompletely on your recording needs. Put them down and I will be in a better position to help you.

M-Audio is available in India.
