But you can use FX teleport to use the VST gigapulse plug-in! You can dedicate a labtop for use with all of your favorite VST plug-ins. I just came after actually it is not necessary to have a powercore card at all (besides their great plugins).
Yes you got it! You can run for example Waves plug-ins which are as good as TC electronic plugins on a Labtop and use that processor purely for effects, and run the Host for your sequencer. I have two powercore cards and love them for their qaulity, but i also have waves and plan to run them on an Labtop together with GS3 using (giga teleport). The fx teleport is called how surprisingly FX teleport. To be sure i have no experineces with the two protocols but it looks all stable and simple.
