I'm currently using an older Emachine laptop with a 2.8ghz Celeron Processor. I've upgraded the ram to the max the computer can handle (1 gig), but am worried that the slower processor will hinder the performance of VD2. I am also using Sibelius 3.1.2. Is my laptop going to be able to handle this? I'd rather not have to spring for a new computer for a while if I can help it. -Matt
VDL2 isn't officially supported on Windows computers with less then a Pentium 4 or Athlon processor, however we have heard reports of success on Celeron machines. Reducing sample rate in VDL2's soundcard setup, and using minimal instruments would probably give you a better chance of success. You could give it a try, but it's probably one of those ";proceed with caution"; scenarios.

Thanks Jim I reduced the sample rates and it's running fine-even with full battery and pit sounds. Thanks again! -Matt
