Latest server versions questions

Postby Grim » Thu Jul 28, 2011 6:27 pm

Could someone advise me on the best way to run the latest server version. I am about to upgrade from 1.3.495 which I am currently running on local server.

With later versions I understand the xml reference has reverted to the Neb instance instead of a specific server xml. Does this mean I could easily go back to separate instances for different categories as I used to pre server?

Also I saw a comment from Giancarlo saying something that I understood (perhaps misconstrued) as "running latest Nebula server version but not using server is already giving much of the advantage of local server."

I am on win 64bit but in a 32bit DAW....so am I better using server or just NebReverb from the server install without the server actually running?

Server > Core3 from 499 experimental version.
All Nebula > IPP 7 optimization from 499 experimental version.

With local server enable you will brake the x86 limit from your sequencer, if you have a lot of RAM, can be useful.

Every time I enable the local server, with either Reaper 32 or 64bit, my performance is worse. I have my best performance using the server version but as a regular Nebula instance. Why is that?

I seem to experience the same thing here with Cubase 6 x64 using Nebula Server v.1.3.499n on a single computer.

That would suggest not to have the server enabled if you have just the one machine, is that right? And what benefit is there anyway if you have enough usable RAM?

Cheers,

G I think they mean they are enabling NebulaServerWin.exe..right guys?

I tried this just to experiement with Sonar 64 and it pretty high CPU usage as well. But .499n by itself like "normal" use is nice

I have been using the server version (newest experimental n) by itself very successfully. I tried running the Server.exe, thinking that running as a local server would help. But it runs best just by itself.
