So... if money were no object, what would be the highest-performing master-slave computer combination that could be bought for VI-intensive/MIR Pro work? Can be Mac or PC. Would love to know whatever is known about this. For the purpose of this thread, I'm talking about a two-computer set-up—one master, one slave. Ideally I'd stay with Mac as the master computer, but even that's up for discussion. My holy grail here would be a huge set of VI libraries plus MIR Pro on my slave computer with lots of individual audio busses travelling back and forth to and from my master computer, along with the ability to run DP on my master computer at a buffer of 128 (or if that's truly not attainable, then totally hiccup-free at 256).
Does anyone have any hard data on this? Or, failing that, useful hands-on experience?
