Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

So I did some digging into getting a custom built PC.
If I go down this route I would just sell the iMac and MBP.

The spec I got for the PC are:

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

Yes, I would probably experiment with this option before splashing out on a whole new computer.
How much roughly would you be talking to swap these out?

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

This thought had crossed my mind.
However, I am sure that 8Gb is enough to run some Play plugins??

My thinking is; I would like to incorporate VEP into my workflow anyway so I may as well try...

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

That's true, I use freeze all the time on channels that I don't need to make immediate changes on then just unfreeze them as and when they are required.
Although, my main reason for doing this is...

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

Okay, so PLAY on MBP and NI on iMac (computer with PT on it) and run them both through VEP7 server?
Do when I am loading and NI plugin, I load it through VEP7 even though it is on the iMac?

Just...

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

I was thinking of running the iMac as the main computer and the MBP as the sever.
iMac with Pro Tools on it.

MPB with all the EWQL on it as PLAY is a bit of a sucker for the CPU and load them all...

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

I was on the phone with Apple this morning and they say I can update to Sierra but my machine will go no higher.
I am happy with this as it gets me away from El Capitan and is only 2 behind current...

Hi,

Does anybody have any thoughts on this?

I have heard of meter readings with no sound but not the other way around!

I am hoping it is just a simple button press but I can not find...

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

I just noticed on the VEP website that if you prefer order VEP7 it will give you access to download and install VEP6.
Does this mean that I can use VEP6 until VEP7 becomes available?
That is good!

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

That's great!
Works out cheaper to get he new one.
So, I would need two licences to run this on both computers?

Yeah, as Jack was saying, I don't think it necessarily needs to be Mojave; it just needs to not even El Captain!!

Re: Using VEP6 with two Macs to offload CPU ??

So, apparently I am unable to update my MBP as I do not have an up to date graphics card??
I then thought it would be as simple as buying a new card...no such luck...earlier MBPs can not be upgraded...
