    Re: MIR it's arrived

    Just to add some info, I was told at NAMM by the VSL rep that MIR will require an i7 processor. I don't know if it will RUN on a lower processor, but he told me it would be the minimum requirement.

    Also, the download version will be just over $1000 US dollars, with the boxed version around $1500 or so.

    Maybe not what everyone was expecting, but still better than a dedicated hardware system at least. This definitely won't be for the hobby market.

    Keep in mind that all of this could change. But that is what I was told directly by the press contact(which is who I normally deal with).

    Also don't forget an additional dedicated puter. Still, this will be a must have if you are delivering final files (sample based sounds) for projects IMHO.

    Re: MIR it's arrived

    I'm excited about MIR as well. I haven't heard any demos yet. Of course, how it makes the samples sound --and if it's enough of a difference from Altiverb/hardware verb to cause me to add MIR to the mix-- will determine weather it's worth buying another computer and MIR. In other words, there's going to have to be a significant reason to make that purchase for me. I do hope it does make that difference, though!!

    Re: MIR it's arrived

    If you're running this on a dedicated computer, would you have to run each instrument track separately into that computer? That could be pretty difficult and expensive, since a lot of times I use 32+ instruments.

    If you're just planning on running everything in using a single track, then MIR is probably overkill, because the whole idea is that each source has a slightly different reverb depending on its position/orientation in the room. If you run everything into your dedicated computer already mixed together, it wouldn't allow you to apply that kind of nuance to your individual instruments, and I wouldn't see the point of using it.

    I would imagine that you can run into MIR via Network.

    I would agree with Daryl as VE3 is doing this successfully now (audio and midi routing via network.)

    For mixing, the latency should not be a problem. For live playing; ouch.....!

    Re: MIR it's arrived

    I don't get the impression that MIR has been designed/optimized for live use, but I could be wrong.

    Btw: when they said it would require an I7, did they mean "all to itself" or "on the same computer as the sequencer"? I ask because even though they have been talking about a dedicated computer this whole time, remarks like that seemed a little more ambiguous.
