My current DAW is a dated P4 2.66 ghz with 2 gigs of ram. Runs nice, and gets my music done. Now I own Omnisphere and while I have used it on a recent project it was with only two sounds loaded and I had to freeze them to finish up the song.
I have another computer that I do my 3D animation and graphics on. It is a Dual Core 1.86 with 2 gigs of ram. They are networked together. Can I buy FX Teleport, install Omnisphere on the graphics computer and let it just be dedicated to Omnisphere? Will this work? Will it work well? Should I just save the FX Teleport money, sell a kidney and buy a new DAW? The thought of reinstalling everthing on a new machine makes my heart stop... (hang on... OK it's ticking again...)
Would buying 3 gigs of ram for my current DAW help more than the FX Teleport? Of course, I'd have to throw out the 4 - 512 sticks and buy 3 - 1 gig sticks...
Any thoughts? Charity? Should I buy a vowel? Punt?
I hope the answer is 3 gigs of ram, next best would be FX Teleport, last would be buy a new computer...
Any advice would be appreciated.
All the very best,
