Mac Mini 1.83GHZ Core Duo as a Softsynth Device.
I'm looking for a Softsynth server to work togheter (via midi and optical) with my G4-PT-Mixplus rig.
I have the option to buy a stock Mac Mini 1.83GHZ Core Duo with 2GB of ram.
I would like to run OSX with the UB version of Native Instruments (Kontakt, Reaktor, FM8 etc), Viena Strings and Reason 3.
And Windows with Ivory Piano, Artvista Piano, BFD, DHF etc...
The files will be in a Firewire 400 drive (with 16MB buffer)
Is that enough to run those hughe strings, drums and piano librarys?
What about latency?
Can I use the build in audio optical output, or should I need some USB audio interface (mbox etc)?
