My setup is currently configured like a pro-tools system, except I'm using MOTU hardware and cuemix software. I have a Mac sequencing computer with DP running my PCs through Midioverlan, and audio from various audio interfaces (echo audio boxes mostly) routed into my mix computer with the MOTU hardware and using Cuemix as the mixing software.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I could use VEP in stand alone mode as mixing software for the MOTU hardware. Everything works great!

What I would like to do is be able to incorporate Network audio from into my mixing setup. In other words, run VEP on another PC to run kontakt or some other VST plugin, use the VEP server software to connect it to the VEP server software on the mix computer running VEP in standalone mode, and have the VEP in standalone mode on the mix computer see the network audio connects as well.

As far as I can tell, the only way to do this is when VEP is running as a plug in, not as standalone. I can get VEP to send audio via the server software as a plug in, but that doesn't help me in this situation. I need VEP to run in standalone mode, having the VEP server application run as well, and have the standalone see both the physical inputs from the audio hardware, and the network inputs from the VEP server application, and be able to mix them all at the same time. From what I can tell now, the program either sees one or the other.

Perhaps there is a way to do this that I don't know yet.

Maybe you could trying runnig something like Steiberg's V Stack software on your mix computer.

This would allow you to instantiate VE Pro as a plugin and that in turn would allow you to use other instances of VE Pro on other machines.

Just a thought as I'm not sure Steinberg still do V Stack, but there will be other VST Host software available...

Hope this helps
