    how do most of you record your orchestra arrangements, 1 or 2 computers

    I getting ready to buy kontakt or giga studio, I hear a lot of people sit up giga studio on a seperate computer. I already have a spare computer so there would be no exspense involved. I am interested in doing string arrangements. If I sit up a seperate computer and record into my main computersthat uses nuendo wont I have to sync the two together.Would I use rewire for this. On the other hand if I use kontakt am I better off on a sererate computer or putting it on my recording computer along with the samples. If I do this wont I have to use the freeze function a lot.

    Hi, your best bet is probably to check out these products;

    Regardless of whether you go Kontakt or Giga, Max will have a tool for the job.

    Thumbs up Re: how do most of you record your orchestra arrangements, 1 or 2 computers

    I second that, Max' Teleport is great to run VST stuff remotely. I currently use it for 1 convolution instance on an old Pentium 3 server, still with very low latency, but I will be using it with faster machines for other plugins and VSTi's.

    I have also tested the (then) beta version of the GigaStudio wrapper, but that didn't work well with this particular Win2K server. I have no doubt that you should be able to run Gst over a LAN connection, without sound card connections, with Max' software.

    I have 3 PCs slaved to my DAW via FX-Teleport and Giga VST adapter. It all works very well, but with 2 provisos:
    Firstly, I can only record one instrument at a time as my sequencer only allows me to record from 1 VST "output". If I was using the traditional route I could send each instrument to a different output and then send each input (from my DAW) to a separate audio track.
    Secondly, I have been unable to get GigaPulse to work properly. One instance is just about OK, but any more causes some kind of electrical sound build up almost like a sine wave. I'm not the only one with this problem and Max is aware of it.
