Patchbox OS installation requirements (RaspPi SDRAM + SD speed and capacity)

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.
Kind Regards

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. :slight_smile:

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.
