I’m a musician and interested in incorporating some visuals into my performance. I use a 2012 MacBook Pro for all my sound needs (I run three pieces of software for the audio side of things, SuperCollider, Mainstage and looping software I made) I’d love to run VDMX as well but am concerned about the load on my computer. It makes sense to run VDMX from another laptop right? Or should I give it a go and see what happens? My graphics card is nothing special (intel HD graphics 384MB)
My question is what specs should I be looking for in another computer? I know bigger is better but my wallet doesn’t agree! I’m also a little fuzzy on how to get the two computers to talk with each other sending audio and midi data. Is there hardware I need to look at? Or software solutions?
Thanks for any advice/suggestions!
