Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7, MacOS X Lion, Linux
  • CPU: 1.5 GHz x86, x86_64, or ARM-based CPU with 2 cores
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Available Storage Space: 100 MB
LMMS may run on systems that do not meet these requirements, but its performance or stability is not guaranteed.
  • OS: Windows 10, MacOS X High Sierra, Linux
  • CPU: 2 GHz x86, x86_64, or ARM-based CPU with 4 cores
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Available Storage Space: 512 MB
More CPU cores, higher CPU clock speed, and additional RAM will increase LMMS's capacity to handle large projects and more plugins.
