With CPU delopment speed coming down, I don't really see clearly what a solution to this could be :
I am running Pristine Space on my 2.13 GHz Athlon 2600+ XP, with 1 GB of dual channel 400 Mhz RAM. For the time being this is enough, sometimes only just.
In the future I will need to run Pristine Space in LCR to surround config, with some additional slots for soloist (mono to surround) and support mics (at least one stereo to surround) - this makes for 24 slots, each with an IR of about 3 secs.
All this at 96 KHz...
In addition, some extra's like a multichannel Elephant, or a multichannel CurveEQ.
Does anyone have an idea about dual Xeon or dual Opterons ? Or is there no real advantage compared to single processor systems ?
Anyway, in the next six months I will probably have to find a PC that is AT LEAST 4x as powerful as what I have.
Also, Fxteleport could be a solution (running VST on a remote PC), but I don't know yet if this supports multichannel VST plugins.
Any thoughts or visionary comments are welcome !
Thanks. Seems like a lot of money for the moment ...
I think it was discussed on the (Soundscape) forum that Soundscape does distribute VST plugins over multiple processors. I need to check on this.
I really think you would struggle getting a CPU to handle all of that; have you considerd a second computer and then using 'transport' software to share the VST loading? There is quite a bit of software now available to allow remote running of VST plugins so you could run half on your current PC and half on a new computer. This also has the advantage of not making your current PC redundant and making it cheaper to upgrade.
Here's one solution
