Sorry just noticed i didn't have read back last time about last posts. So busy lately...
Michael, i did try a bit reaper when i could. I have to admit it's difficult to me to change again daw just in the middle of a huge project. Concerning VEP3 i guess you found out since your message about it. It's a very useful software sending a huge number of audio and midi track in up to 4 additional computer. Actually I have my main Macintosh linked to 2 PC server in rack. and yes it have to use VST3 to have the benefit of more than 16 midi channel. The mac is only running the daw and a few vst.... the huge work of sample running is left to the pc, and everything is coming back on separate audio track into the mac in real time. The big "plus" of VEP is that it save the sessions setting on your slave computer from the master computer. in other words, when you save your session on your daw, the slaves pc save all setting and sound and you just have to reopen your session on your daw, the slave computers just reload everything without any action. Basically, once my orchestral template is created on the pc, the only action i have on them is to turn them on in the morning, and to turn them off in the evening. i don't even have to turn any screen on. and this is huge. Really if u use big orchestral sessions, VEP5 is just a must have, I don't even understand how to do without it. I know there is other softwares like this somewhere as you pointed it but Vienna is working on it for a long long time, and they have a very stable application with everything well done inside.
so yes, i'm a bit cold to insert again some software on chain, as i have already many running, and one more with the Geco midi app for the leap motion.
Phil999: Yes i have try this after your message this is the plug used in the video we were talking about with Michael, but it has kinda the same problem (i mean violent sound starting when you place your hand over the leap motion, and let's face it, the quality is far far away from the viola in term of realism.
but that was interesting link thx
best to you.
