    Question about more ram and cpu

    Hi guys

    I have a question about rigging multiple computers for my daw. Yes, I know a lot has been written on it - and I've read it, but nobody has answered my question so I'm gonna post it here! *neener!*

    Anyways, I was wondering if it's possible to "hook up" two computers in such a way that comp2 (the second computer) has only a motherboard, hard drive, ram, and cpu so that comp1 (the main computer) will have more ram and more processing power. Basically, I am wondering if it's possible to attach two computers. I ask this because I currently have 1.2gigs of ram on my main, and it really isn't enough for larger libraries (I'm thinkin about ewqlso). 1.2 is very piddly in fact

    What I had in mind was a setup like the following:

    1. Computer 1: All my music apps (Sonar, gigastudio, etc.)
    2. Computer 2: A mini computer that has only the parts mentioned above that I 'somehow' connect to Computer 1 so that I can now load more instruments into ram.
    3. Computer 3: Same as Computer 2.
    .
    .
    .
    N. Computer N: Same as Computer (N - 1).

    So, it would be an indefinitely long chain of computers that hook up to my main, but with each extra "mini computer," I get more ram in which to load instruments.

    Now, question 2: What is the most effective way to increase the amount of available ram? Short of buying gig-sticks which cost way too much!

    Question 1: No

    Question 2: You want to build all those “mini” computers, and you’re worried about spending money on 1GB RAM modules?

    Bill

    How do I ever increase my ram beyond the 2gb mark - which is all I would be able to put into my current cpu, since I only have 2 usable ram slots?

    I'm just a little shaky when it comes to using more than one computer..

    No reason to do so. At this point Windows can't use more, and Giga usually can't use mouch more than 1 GB.

    Yes, there is a way. Check out the Giga VST adapter by FX-MAX. Check out this website: http://www.fx-max.com/fxt/product.html. This will allow to control Giga as a VST inside your favorite sequencer. Please note that you have to buy an extra copy of Giga for each machine so it can get pretty pricey.

    Yes, well, that's not what he was asking
