I bought it but couldn't use it very well, due to an old PC with not enough video card power. Its real-time graphics took down my old machine lol.
Upgraded the PC, but have been waiting for video cards to get back to $ reasonable....
In case you haven't noticed, they kind of have. That being said, I find no indications at all that the software would require any noteworthy amount of GPU power... it may well be completely CPU-bound. If the new PC has no on-chip graphics to offer, I would try it with whatever not-entirely-ancient potato GPU you can find on the used market (a GT710 generally seems to be new enough to have a BIOS with UEFI support and generally is passively cooled).

Yep, thx for heads up on vid card prices. I guess with crypto currencies collapse, their demand has dropped a lot.

Should probably admit even the relatively weak Ryzen 5600G I moved to, with just it's integrated graphics seemed handle APL_TDA RT's graphic needs.
(My old Intel Core duo was enough CPU....APL shows how well the CPU is keeping up)
It took me a while to be willing to try to migrate Win10 to a new mobo/CPU...i kinda lost interest in really checking out APL, I guess.
Measurements are part of the audio hobby for me....use REW, ARTA, and especially Smaart, alot. Still curious about APL, need to make time...
