Just curious to hear about the results that others are getting with there 2 CPU setups, I've been wanting to get another monster PC but haven't cause I'm afraid it won't be worth it. Does anyone have success? If so what is your computer build ? Any info is appreciated
Theres no way to do this scientifically I think.. a lot of this might depend on performance tweaks which I know nothing about My gear is middle of the range & last-gen so Im guessing youll be able to offload 40-50% of the load on the local machine. I understand theyre still working on the networking.
So running a project in reaper @ 44.1, 24 bit.. The client machine has a presonus firepod, 28ms latency. Meaning theres no tracking, just mixing
Running Nebula client/server: 16 instances of alexb modern black console mono line-in before I get pops. 21 instances and theres distortion. I can render this out and start adding more
Running neb locally: 16 instances of alexb modern black console mono line-in sounds like the 2nd example above. Unusable. I can just about get 12 working instances Adding more than 16 crashes reaper.
your results might be different again depending on your driver. swapping the presonus driver with asio4allv2 gave me about the same performance over the network but slightly improved performance locally
I would be running 2 very powerful i7's over clocked to 4.5 GHz , I'm also running an mbox 3 pro. From what I've read your either saying there isn't a difference , or the server PC is taking 40% of the load from the primary PC?
