It certainly wouldn't hurt.... Add at least another 4 GB of memory, however, I suspect the recorder is what's sucking up the CPU. Open your Activity Monitor application (Applications, Utilities, Activity Monitor.app) and watch the CPU percentage and amount of memory used when you turn on the recorder.
