How much RAM memory do you need for music production

How much RAM memory do you need for music production

I see and hear a lot of people shouting that RAM memory is the most important thing when it comes to music production.
That isn`t the case at all, as I will show you in this video.
I looked at some of my old projects in Logic Pro X and Studio One and see how much memory do they use?
It turns out, not much at all...

But every project is different, every song is different for music production.
Memory is important, I am not denying that. Your computer can`t even boot without it.
But my opinion is that you need not THAT amount of money that everyone is shouting about.
But... to be more future proof it is wise to have some extra in your computer.
Just watch the video and you`ll see!

By the way... most important for music production is CPU and SSD, on the third place the gigabytes of memory in your computer.
