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?March 20, 2021 at 16:39 #6370NikolaiKeymaster
I have been experimenting with this, but I fear the latency would be too large when you go Console > LP > Audiogridder > LP > ConsoleMarch 20, 2021 at 17:43 #6372
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 showsMarch 21, 2021 at 12:27 #6376HiSPLParticipant
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 easyMarch 22, 2021 at 18:19 #6386HiSPLParticipant
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.March 23, 2021 at 11:22 #6387
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

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.April 9, 2022 at 10:51 #6571schmelzerbParticipant
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? 🙃
