Hi all, after reading through the forums here and searching the net, I still have a few questions/concerns about linking together multiple PC\'s.
Not sure how to phrase all of these questions but here goes;
1.) Is it an absolute no-no to run a USB midi interface for more than one machine? What are the alternatives?
2.) I was thinking that due to the lack of a hardware mixer on my part that I would sync together multiple copies of Cubase, do internal mixing on each machine, and then run each mix out in stereo to the main mix-down machine. If this is viable, is Midi Time Code the way to go?
3.) Assuming MTC is the preferred method in locking everything together, I have read that it is best to dedicate one midi cable to the transfer of the time code on it\'s own. How is this possible though if each computer only has one midi in/out?
Am I approaching this the wrong way? Perhaps it might\'ve been easier to explain first what I am after and let you guys suggest the best method. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Put simply I want;
Machine 1; Sequencer/Mixdown DAW
Machine 2; Sampler (Giga)
Machine 3; Sampler (Kontakt)
Essentially I need recommendations on cheap reliable sound cards and the required midi gear to pull this off.
I understand the whole concept of running a KVM box for all of this, my main concerns revolve around having a tight low-latency multi-PC DAW environment.
Thanks in advance for your help.
