  • Do I Need A Router with this set up?


    When using VI Pro can I connect two MacBook Pro's via an ethernet cable directly or do they both have to beconected to a Router?



  • Hi Dave, 

    I guess you are referring to VE PRO, right?

    One ethernet cable with a working network is enough :-)

  • Thanks Paul!  Yes VE.  I'm researching purchasing VE Pro to run Ivory on my other Mac while I orchestrate on my main computer.  My concern in reading about VE Pro is that it sounds like Latency maybe an issue for me with VE Pro.  From what I've read it's not recommended to run VE at a value of None but run at either 1 or 2 which increases buffer settings by a factor of 1 or  2.  

    In seeing what I'm doing above will I not be able to run at 0?  I really like playing a piano at 128K buffer.  Both Mac's are Dual core Duo Macbook Pro's.

    Would appreciate your thoughts?

    Hi Dave,

    Give it a try with the free demo license, available here (click "try")...

    I don´t think it will be a problem, but it might also depend on how wild you play your piano.

    While we´re at it: You should definitely check out the Vienna Imperial (up to 100 Velocity layers, up to 1200 samples for each key....)

  • If you do not need to have an Internet access

           an ethernet cable will do the job

    If not

           If your router is having 2 or more entries 

                  you connect the 2 x MB to the router

          If not 

                   you need to buy an Ethernet switch 

          end if

    end if

    Voilà ;)
