HiQnet Audio Architect v2.25.1 (Windows 7 SP1, 8.1, 10)

Note: this is an old version. The current version is: HiQnet Audio Architect v2.55.1 (Windows 7 SP1, 8.1, 10).


System requirements:

64-bit versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10

Minimum Performance Guidelines:

CPU: 64-bit dual core @ 2.0GHz or better, 4GB of RAM

Optimal Performance Guidelines:

Audio Architect is a computationally intensive application. The hardware requirements needed to run Audio Architect optimally depend on your venue file. Number of devices and custom panels are the biggest contributors to the amount of memory required. Not having enough memory will have the biggest impact on performance. As a rule of thumb, the amount of memory required should be at least (3GB + 100MB x number of devices).

While the number of processor cores can improve performance, processor clock speed will have a bigger impact on performance.


Note: Local Administrator user rights are required to install Audio Architect.  If you are having difficulty installing Audio Architect and are aware that you do not have Local Admin rights on your computer, consult your IT department for access.
