How is this way of working better than MIDI networking or VST System Link?
You work from a single host program on your
main machine. The FX are totally integrated into the host - therefore you end
up with one song file which contains all your plug-in settings, plug-in
parameter automation, and mix integrating all the FX and Instruments. Also
instead of quite expensive dedicated hardware you use a relatively cheap LAN
connection, allowing you to instantly switch between local (host machine only)
and remote modes. There's absolutely no jitter in the system and overall
latency is smaller than on most USB MIDI interfaces.
It's easy as 1, 2, 3!
Just make sure you have 2 or more machines running Windows networked
via 100 MBit LAN (usually it is so if you can freely transfer files
from one machine to the other). Also make sure you have any VST host,
like Cubase, Logic or any other installed on one machine and any VST
plug-ins to be installed on the other(s).
1. Download FX Teleport installer and
install it on all your machines.
2. Install your VST instruments and/or FX on the additional machines
and launch FX Teleport Server.
3. On your host machine enable all remote VST instruments/FX using
FX Teleport Configure Utility.
Your studio is ready to go!
Launch your host application, choose the remote FX and... wow!!!
the FX are launched on the remote machines,
totally integrated with the host, working on your main one! Everything
is in its place as if you launched it on a single machine: plug-in
automation, the ability to save plug-in parameters in the song, and of
course audio streams from all the plug-ins into the host machine. Live
performance on a remote instrument won't cause you any problems either.
Good luck with your new studio!
