    I was tracking with Cubase and a 1.8 Ghz laptop and the artist said that whenever he was singing the monitoring would skip and it would throw him off beat. I'm thinking that its because my laptop doesn't have enough juice but I'm not sure because I figured 1.8 and 256 should be plenty. I tried cutting it down from 24 bit to 16 bit to see if it would fix it but it didn't. Any ideas or similar situations?

    I would start with at least one GB of RAM for a multi-track audio application.

    A typical XP laptop takes about 225MB of RAM just to idle.

    Yes, u must have a powerful laptop for multi track recording. specially because laptops overheat a lot and that slows down the cpu processing. so to keep the cpu processing healthy, u have to add ram. 1GB is pretty reasonable. i use 2GB on my desktop and runs smoothly. no problems at all.

    I can't figure out how to turn off the ASIO monitoring to where its coming straight from the computer. The program that I'm using is Cubase LE. Please help!?!

    Get more RAM...
    Or do evil tweaking. My studiomachine is down to bellow 50MB now after booting, just idling. with no programs running that is.
