Recently, I have made the decision to start bringing home some work (mostly composing and recording) and am about to purchase some new gear to help me.
Starting with a brand new Pentium 3, 2 Ghz processor, plenty of ram and a nice big harddrive, I was wondering if the dusty old PC I already own is redundant in this new rig?
I had read an article in AudioTechnology magazine some time ago, which rumoured that I would be able to use this old PC as a host for programs such as Reason, and have it connected to my new PC via SPDIF.
If I do set this up, I am just wondering if I will be wasting my time...you see, the older PC is only a 1.39 Ghz processor with 128 RAM... which leads me to believe that it may actually not benefit me in the way I was hoping.
Does anyone have any experience in hooking up two PC's in this way?
