    anyone have tried to use liveprofessor with an external server, maybe using audiogridder?

    I don’t know,  just to try to use in the live concerts without using too much dsp on the macbook 🙂

    any ideas?

    I have been experimenting with this, but I fear the latency would be too large when you go Console > LP > Audiogridder > LP > Console

    Hi Nikolai,
    thank you for your reply.
    in fact I agree with you, even in my opinion this way brings too much latency.
    and what about a dedicated, maybe portable, server for LP?? I think can be very useful for live shows

    How many plugins are you using? You could run LP2 on a headless NUC or a Mac Mini. I used to do this with a Mac Mini running Multirack and the Mac lived in the doghouse of the desk. I could remote into it to trigger cues if I needed.


    Of course with LP2 you could just set up a midi connection from the desk that would recall cues in LP2.

    I don’t use so many plugins, but I like to use reverbs and the use a lot of cpu.
    So you use macmini server with LP?? which apps you put on this server to work with LP?
    I know nothing about that, but I’d like to try

    I already use midi to change snapshots on LP, this is easy

    No I did it with Waves Multirack. I am trying to get LP2 up and running myself so I can totally divorce myself from Waves.


    But the Mac Mini ran probably 15-20 different plugins for me on Multirack and I was at like 35% load. None of them were reverbs though.

    it’d be nice if we can use the mac mini server to take the processing of the plugins load off the laptop.

    usually when I use my macbook pro it  gets so hot you can cook an egg on it, ahahahahah

    everything becomes unstable and unsafe to use live

    Not sure if anybody else has done this but I built a server. Spec is Intel i9 5.0ghz OC, 10c/20t, liquid cooled, rednet PCI. Getting pretty great results with a buffer at 128 @96k. Im running Plugin Alliance, Fab Filter, Kush Audio, Soundtoys, Valhalla, Waves, and UAD with an octo tb3 satellite.

    I’m looking into building a server as well. My only reservation is that the new Intel i9 has 8 power + 8 efficient cores and I’m concerned about latency. If and “efficient core” gets tasked with processing audio from plug-ins what does that do to my latency or buffer.

    Does anyone have any experience with this or should I be the guinea pig? 🙃

    I think that for audio plugins the multi core processors aren’t the best. For my opinion They are the best for video processing.
    I’m pretty sure that the new m1 apple is the best, especially because this processor does not overheat like the intel.
