Hi Patchbox Community!
I just ordered a PiSound to use it with a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B and was wondering about the requirements for Patchbox OS (with all Modules installed)
What are the minimum/recommended requirements for:
-Raspberry Pi 4 Model B -> Will 4 GB suffice or better 8GB SDRAM?
-Will a SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB be enough? Or can a slower SD (e.g. Extreme or Ultra) with less capacity say 32GB be used instead?
Many thanks in advance and please excuse if I may have overlook where to find this information.
Any SD card >= 16GB is fully sufficient for most use cases. The speed does have an impact on system performance, but only for disk-intensive tasks like installing software, compiling, installing software updates, booting, etc… Once the system is up and running, and all the critical bits are in RAM, it has little impact.
As for RAM amount, I’d personally go with 2GB or 4GB. Only if you’re intending to do something very memory intensive you’d need the 8GB version.
