Can anyone chime in who runs a slave computer? Do you use VST system link? All the videos I see on youtube for it are from like Cubase 5…
I hear about people using it for Vienna Pro, but are you using a specific Vienna Pro software solution to link the two or is it something that can be used with any library? I do not own Vienna por and I don’t really do orchestral scoring so Komplete is good enough for my needs.
Do people generally use a second computer for sample libraries? To run VSTs?
As things stand now, I am using a 2012 Mac Pro 12 core with 64 gig of ram. My projects get up around 100 tracks pretty heavily leaning on vst synths and sample libraries. As I get to the middle of my productions I need to freeze lots of tracks in order to get consistent playback. I’d like to not have to do that.
I’d also like to be able to bounce all my groups stems down in real time to Pro tools. I currently have a single Apollo 16, so I’m not really sure if I’d need a second dedicated sound card for the second computer or if there is a way to have them networked in a way that the single apollo would work for that mixdown as well?
Lastly- do I need to have two copies of cubase if I am doing a system link or spreading the load for the VSTs?
A lot of questions I know! Any help from those that have a large system working well enough is much appreciated!
