  • VE Pro - CPU use - question

    Hi All

    Probably a silly question, but still I think worth asking...

    I use VE PRO 5 on a four PC array (one PC being for the DAW). In the main this is to share RAM (each has 32 Gigs). However, more and more I am using one PC to host CPU intensive VI instruments. RAM is then not an issue in the main, I am saving CPU on my DAW PC...

    So the question is this : if I host the VI synth (for example) on a slave, will the CPU saving on the DAW still be significant when compared to the CPU used by the DAW to host the VE PRO plug in and deal with the midi audio in / out?  In addition, if the CPU usage on the slave as high (as some of the VI synths are very CPU hungry), that should have no impact on the DAW CPU usage (other than the hosting of the plugin / midi / audio as mentioned above).....

    Reason for asking. Was considering upgrading my DAW PC (its quite high spec now anyway). However, if CPU / RAM load is really distributed over all four PC's, then there should be many many months (years) of life left...

     

    cheers
