If anyone is running a Mac Studio Ultra and a recent or new PC for external VEPro hosting, what kind of buffer sizes (and buffer multipliers in VEPro) do you need when working with a large template? Is it possible to keep the Mac at 128 or 256 if the PC is doing a lot of the work, and how small can the multiplier be?

I mean, by the way, if the PC is playing lots of stuff - not just Superior Drummer or something, but full strings/brass/winds. Full sections, lots of articulations.

Curious also about the handling of cores on 13k PC’s vs. AMD Ryzen 9’s - I’m really skeptical of the idea of half as many performance cores as efficiency cores.

Until VSl releases a native version of VEP, you can’t get below 512 without crashing (in Cubase). No one knows how low we’ll be able to go until this comes out.

I have Macbook pro m2 max & four windows PCs. All of them hooked to 2.5Gb network. After ton of testing, I found my system stable with 768 buffer size with Rosetta VEP 7. But it's not playable realtime. Now i want to try Apple Silicon Native version of VEP.
