Apple Xgrid CPU Network and DAWs?

Apple Xgrid CPU Network and DAWs?

Has anyone looked at Apple’s X grid system CPU networking scheme and how it might be applied to the DAW?

If it can work in realtime 5 mac minis would make one insane super DAW.

i'd imagine that this will become a big feature in future versions of Final Cut studio etc, logic pro already has nodes. Don't know really how it'd be better to use xgrid? unless you've got a huge session and want to bounce faster than realtime and not have to go to lunch while it does so?

As I understand it, the 'nodes' in Logic is already an implementation of Xgrid. Does only work with the included Logic plugins though...

Yeah, I wish there was a way to get logic nodes to work on all 3rd party plugs as well. As I don't use very many of the logic plugs, it's kind of a waste of time... but I sure could use distributed processing of ALL tasks in logic -- that'd be useful.

The way I read the Xgrind info, it seems that any application would have it's cpu tasks spead across the CPU group. I have put in a email to APPLE's audio group. I imagine they will comment and I will post here if they do.
