Hey VSL guys!

I'm loving VEPro, but I just tried to open up a 3rd-party AU and realized that you'd probably need to install those 3rd-party plugins (Kontakt, EastWest stuff, etc) on the slave machine as well as the original machine, right?  It just dawned on me that if you want to keep those AU's on both machines (if you don't always run the slave), or if you want to run an Altiverb on the slave, you'd actually need to purchase second copies/second licenses of those AU's to run on the slave.   Is that correct, or can VEPro somehow "stream" them from the master, using the slave's CPU and RAM?

Sorry but I don't think that that would be at all possible.  You are actually talking about distributed computing in it's purest sense and this is not technically achievable using "consumer" or "prosumer" technology.  It would be like running Apple Grand central dispatch over multiple physical machines.  So you either need to run your AUs on the slave or the main DAW.  

Some AUs (mostly Kontakt based ones) allow you to install on multiple machines anyway (e.g. Symphobia) and others like Omnisphere, Stylus allow you to install copies on as many machines as you want.
