We are planning on supporting cross-platform Reamote at some point.. there will be some work involved, and to the extent that plug-ins are only supported on one of the platforms, it will be less than ideal (for example if you're on a windows machine and you have a windows only VST, it wont be able to use that remotely obviously)...

If that makes sense?

Of course at the moment there is 'feedback' that allows the host to control the settings in the slave and sure it'd be a pain in the backside having to change settings on two machines (as FX Teleport and the like works) but there are ways to make this simpler with peripheral and display hubs etc. and I think the benefits of this cross platform processing even without the 'feedback' would be wonderful. At least for me

There is such good software on both Windows and OSX (and indeed Linux too but best leave that one out for now!) that its a real shame and a limitation to be stuck on one platform.

Also this would totally kill off UAD etc and having read the Reaper forums I know what a total pain in the you know what they've been
