Networking PLEASE

I (and so many others) would welcome a new FX Teleport style networking in order to be able to simply throw vst effects and instruments onto another computer (or computers) using their raw cpu power to boost our mixes. I believe Reaper has this and know VSL and other progs exists but they are over kill for the simple facility mentioned above. If Steinberg could simply incorporate this on all send/inserts/instrument racks to have a kind of ‘node’ button having the ability to play the effect or instrument from either the main DAW system or other computers on the network via Lan…This would make Cubase (in my opinion) the top of the league.
Many say, just get a more powerful CPU but that involves big money and a new PC and re-install and …

It doesn’t always solve the issue, some mixes can be rather large and need more raw processing power, especially as synths and FX grow in size and cpu usage when oversampling, we can ALL benefit from more processing power.

Please consider this Steinberg in your upcoming updates, it really is a Big issue for so many of us


I wonder what the chances are of this becoming a reality …

+1 for the age old dream… I actually use Vienna Ensemble, but integration within Cubase would crush it, if I could swap effects and their presets like a quick drag & drop. Using Vienna for effect plugins is a very tedious, and convoluted task.

+0,5. VST over ethernet would solve this far wider than just Cubase.

Agreed, but no one seems to have taken FX TELEPORT (or a similar idea) and updated, improved or re-released it for today’s environment. In my humble opinion it was and still is the best in its field, simple to work with, and did everything I needed, be it instrument or effect. The concept was so simple and yet so workable it was amazing. The ability to hook as many computers as you liked with a simple change of server number. There was a time when i had 4 computers on my system and it was fantastic.
Someone out there must have the know-how and ability to get this adapted to 64 bit for operating systems surely?
This would solve so many people’s woes. Vienna just doesn’t cut it for me, it is a different beast altogether and designed for other things, it’s not simple and very expensive.
Oh boy, bring FX TELEPORT back to the table someone PLEASE! :cry:

+1, I asked for this very long time ago, I wonder if it is a patent issue.

In the meantime, you can check out NetVST for this, simple but seems to work well, and it’s free. This is also built into PluginGury Unify it seems

I agree, this feature being part of Cubase would be great, an option for those running out of processing power.

Hi and thanks for your suggestion. I have actually looked at this but cannot find a way to simply run fx plugins from another computer. It seems to only be able to run synths and stuff. I simply want to add an effect on a channel and have the cpu from another system take the load…nothing more, nothing less…just like FX Teleport. I could run, synths, fx and anything else I dreamed of in that simple easy to use program…what a genius the person who invented and built that…I wonder who they are and what they are doing now?
Steinberg, please put this into a future update as soon as possible, you have the tech and the knowhow and are part of the way there…a simple switch on each track enabling the load to work from the host or the server would take Cubase into a different realm.

Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 is what FX Teleport is except it is 64 bit and works great with excellent support (Mac and PC friendly). Been using VE PRO since it came out many years and it works well for what it does.

Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 can do this

I have checked out Vienna Ensemble Pro but it is a large and difficult program and rather overkill for what I am talking about. If you check out FX Teleport you will see the simplicity and easy of use, as well as being a very light unobtrusive little program.
Not knocking VEP at all, it’s a great program for what it does but OTT and for me.


With Steinberg owning the VST3 API. and VST3 being client-server capable as an API in theory. it would be great to see a solution better than VEP.

One allowing the plugin GUI to sit on the cubase client while the plugin audio guts and processing get left on the server. this would for example allow for Komplete Kontrol and NKS to work across the network - something not possible when using VEP.

Should be a piece of cake for Steinberg. Lately my CPU is crumbling with all these larger more processor intensive vsts and I have to resolve to freezing tracks which is not ideal for me.
Come on Steinberg PLEASE PLEASE add this to your next update, you will make so many customers very happy and would propel Cubase into a new realm…it will be untouchable in my humble opinion.


That would be great if Nuendo/Cubase had a built in networking feature like this. Vienna Ensemble Pro however handles the CPU much better than Nuendo/Cubase does even on a one machine setup so I’m not too sure their solution would be better than VE PRO at this point. I really hope they can get similar CPU performance in Nuendo/Cubase soon.

I expect this problem to be solved is a (DSB box External Hardware) (this is an imaginary idea but I hope it will be implemented)
This box is made and programmed by Steinberg Company to support the computer and help the Cubase to be stronger and withstand a lot of Plugins instead of your computer
Universal Audio Company, the processor in its devices, is a programmer and supports their applications only and other companies that bias their products
I expect the DSB box to be made as
-series 1 (Compact) low performance
-series 2 (Super) medium performance
-series 3 (Ultimate) very high performance

or maybe be combined with their own Interface studio devices

I expect Protools they have already similar solutions but I really hate this company
And I hope that Steinberg improves this system and makes it fully compatible with the Cubase/neuendo



I disagree, why buy another box, no doubt it would be expensive, when most of us have additional computer/s that could run few plugins?!

I agree that Steinberg should have a built-in feature for this, as software, and you can run on any machine, Win or Mac.
