    Hi guys I posted this in the general too but then realised there was this tiny section that might help me haha anyways,

    My friend is recording my band on Pro Tools, and unfortunately it keeps freezing in the final stages as he doesnt have enough processing power for such a big task.

    He uses an iMac and I have a Macbook Pro, both of which are under 6 months old and running Snow Leopard. Can we link them like a distributed computing system (just learnt what this meant!) and use my Macbook as a kind 'helper' with its CPU power?
