DAW 1 has Kontakt/Cubase SX
DAW 2 has Gigastudio v2.5
DAW2 transfers sound to DAW1 through 2 ADAT lightpipe cables from RME soundcard allowing four separate stereo channels to flow from DAW2 to DAW1.
On DAW 1 Cubase SX, for tracks using Giga samples, I need to setup both a midi track and an audio track to enable recording audio tracks for giga sounds coming from DAW 2.
Naturally on DAW 1 when I use a VST like Kontakt (which also resides on DAW1) , I only need to set up a midi track and Cubase automatically provides me with a separate audio track.
For some reason, I can't predict if I load KONTAKT on DAW 2 would I still need two tracks in Cubase on DAW 1 (1 midi track and 1 audio track) for Kontakt sounds as I need with Gigastudio? I know Kontakt is a VST, but does the automatic creation of an audio track in Cubase still hold true when VST is on another machine connected via lightpipe?
