well, imho, any viable hardware solution for Nebula would be the parallella project.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ada ... r-everyone

Given the low cost, any serious studio could afford a supercomputer. Ihis would need a complete rewrite of the code, I know, but considering time mode only, would it be feasible ? I would rather pay you directly GianCarlo to make it happen ... if only I was rich ... Maybe a group buy ?

Is ARM. NSH will based under Intel x64 architecture. We should research about the OS. Linux maybe? Also 10 Gigabit Ethernet NIC?

ARM, yes - that's why I suggest only the time mode to be ported. NSH is pretty new and allow 64bits otherwise ARM is 32bits locked. Ubuntu allows arm64. 10Gb ethernet, yes but would suggest a true thin client to reduce bandwith or to allow more paralell computer to communicate.

ARM = Write Nebula again = impossible.

Hi Enrique,

I have read some benchmarks where a linux DAW and a windows DAW were compared directly (I think Reaper or Renoise). Windows did better at lower latency then Linux (which suprised me).
But the thing with linux is of cource that you could strip the OS till the point where it's almost just running nebula... That might be cool. But I'm not sure about how it would really work.
Maybe a realtime OS would help with the latency (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-time_operating_system)

10Gb might be cool for all the audio. On the other hand, with Vienna Ensemble I'm streaming LOADS of stereo tracks at once from one PC to my main. But that's only 1 way (most of the time at least).
Maybe a setup where the main computer has a 10GB adapter and and the slaves have 1 1GB adapter, with a switch between them and the option to run 8 slaves or so on 1 main computer would be a good one.

But of cource you guys know the actual load of the streaming :)

Well, looking forward to it :)
