    macrumors newbie

    Jun 29, 2009
    Hey all,

    I run Ableton on both my Macbook and my studio PC (quad core).

    Is there anyway that I could link both computers so that I can run VSTS on my PC and do all of my production in Ableton on my Macbook?? This would be awesome because I would have the power of my fast PC and the stability of my Mac OS.

    Both computers have nice audio interface as well (EMU 1820, and M-Audio fast track pro)

    Any help is much appreciated!

    You will need to buy MIDI over LAN (MoL) and have an ADAT or S/PDIF digital connection between each computer through an interface of some sort. I'm not familiar with what you have, but I'm pretty sure the FastTrack Pro does not have S/PDIF or ADAT on it.

    It is possible, and is done very often in the professional audio field, especially among composers.
