Newbie Question for DAW Host and Slave

Postby pneron » Thu Jan 19, 2017 5:25 am

How is a DAW host and Slave interconnected for Film Scoring? I am trying to spec out a new system config with two Macs with MOTU 2408 H/W. Do I need additional controller H/W between systems?

Thanks

A lot of people are connecting the slave via Ethernet lately, I've noticed. There are some threads hereabouts with folks discussing that.

I don't myself - I simply have two interfaces and run audio between them via either S/PDIF or even just analog lines, but I really do not use the other computer as a slave for sample libraries or anything like that. Plenty of help here available, though!

Look into VE Pro. Cheaper than a second interface; establishes an Ethernet connection thru which all audio and MIDI flows.

Feel free to check out my YouTube channel's Digital Performer Playlist which is basically dedicated to Digital Performer, Vienna Ensemble Pro, Kontakt and film scoring rigs. I only shown my slave MacPro in one of the videos but it will be included in upcoming videos.

Try these two. They're a couple of years old now and nearly every version of the software, my host and slave computers and my sample libraries have either been replaced or updated. I've also cleaned up and updated my workflow quite a bit, but these two should give you a clear look at what you want. If you do go to my channel you can find the complete DP playlist.

If you have any questions after, just let me know.
