I do TV work with some orchestral but never sessions with insane track amounts. I'm more concerned with say using 10 Omnispheres and 10 Kontakt and plugin...

Re: Cores vs GHz speed for new computer

Thanks for the help. From my experience you can only do one vsti instrument on a track so I can’t layer the way you mentioned with multiple instruments on one track. I would have to have more tracks.

Does it work well if you are using Ableton on it instead of Yeco or touchable. Or will those apps work better? I tr...

Re: X-Touch and Ableton 10 Channel select issue

Thanks for the info. What if I have 3 units for 32 tracks. Are the 2 extenders going to even work if Ableton only sees 1 bank. or will it bank by 32 channels groups or shift by 8?
