Forever waiting for Apple to release the much anticipated proper Mac Pro Upgrade - I'm thinking this might be a solution for the medium term future. Is anybody using it in earnest? Is it working for you?

Whoops--you've done the former, I'm afraid to admit. I have Ens 4 loaded on my MacPro but don't use it. I'm sure it's great, but since I'm not using a slave computer I didn't want to take the time to figure it out. (aux tracks for automation, if using Logic Pro? Is that still in effect? I just want to click automation onto a track and go.)
I finally broke down and ordered a "new" MacPro 6 core. Will load Ens 5 onto (Mir for me finally) and use my 06 Mac Pro as a slave.
I suspect the advantages of Ens 4 probably outweighed the disadvantages, but to the unaguainted it just seemed like another layer on the onion, and I got along fine without it. Cheers, Tom
Really? Why is that?
Also, I'm already struggling with the notion of having to relearn all my procedures if I want to use MIR. I just read a 30 something page tutorial on how to set up Ensemble Orchestral Templates when using Logic Pro 9 and my head is spinning with the number of confusing steps and workarounds, just to do what I already do using Logic Pro and no Ensemble. Right now, as someone whose not particularly technically adept, I keep asking myself-- what's the point of Ens 5, besides running MIR and connecting slave computers, I don't see the need for it.
I've watched the tutorials. Still feel like there's something I'm not getting... Ah well. Once I've got the new MacPro and have it all running, I suppose my reservations will diminish.
Logic is using very little CPU resources, VEP with MIR PRO in 5.1 or 7.1 is a CPU exterminator
This why you put Logic on the less powerfull computer and VEP on the most powerfull
