I'm in need of more space, but my DAW is currently full of hard disk drivers (1x 80gb for system, 1x 80gb for data and 2x 200gb for samples).
I'm wondering if there is any way to use or load all my sample libraries from another computer, via network?
I was thinking about install the samples on another computer in the network, but I'm afraid there could be any network problem or delay, even because I'm using two computers on Windows XP directly connected each other, and sometimes, for my server to reach a folder in my DAW, it takes a while (I don't know why).
1. Maybe it would be better to use a real server (Windows 2003) between all the stations?
2. I don't know if the example above would work. I also heard many things about Midioverlan, but never used it and don't know how it works. Is it like I said above (I load the samples from another machine directly on my DAW) or different (it controls another computer running the host and the sample libraries by itself)?
