Requisitos del sistema#

Soporte físico#

  • x86_64 (64-bit), i686 (32-bit), powerpc64le (PowerPC), armhf (ARMv7) or aarch64 (ARMv8)

Sistema operativo#

  • GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Windows o MacOS



Para un funcionamiento correcto, recomendamos utilizar una CPU con al menos 2 GHz de velocidad de reloj y al menos 4 núcleos en total.


Se recomienda tener un monitor de al menos 16”” para trabajar de manera eficiente con Zrythm.

Interfaz de audio

Una interfaz de audio ofrece baja latencia y mejor calidad que las tarjetas de sonido integradas (especialmente cuando se graba audio).

Teclado MIDI

For quickly trying out melodies, recording and controlling knobs and buttons.


When using the JACK backend, JACK needs to be set up and configured before running Zrythm. You will find lots of information online about how to configure JACK, such as Demystifying JACK - A Beginners Guide to Getting Started with JACK, so we will skip this part.

Memory Locking#

Zrythm requires memory locking privileges for reliable, dropout-free operation. In short, if data is not locked into memory, it can be swapped by the kernel, causing xruns when attempting to access the data.

Realtime Scheduling#

Zrythm requires realtime scheduling privileges for reliable, dropout-free operation. Realtime (RT) scheduling is a feature that enables applications to meet timing deadlines more reliably.


To set up these privileges for your user, see How do I configure my linux system to allow JACK to use realtime scheduling?.


To set up these privileges for your user, change the user class” memorylocked value in /etc/login.conf.

Open File Limit#

On startup, Zrythm will attempt to increase the maximum limit of files it can open. You should give your user enough permissions to allow this.
