Better to run MIR in VEPro or MIR plug-in in Protools?

Is it better to run MIR in VEPRO or in direct plug-in in Protools for latency or other reasons? Will my standard MIR authorization allow me to leave all my MIR settings in VEPro and also open the MIR plug-in directly in Protools (all on one computer), that is, to run both?

Here is a more detailed description of my situation. I'm adding strings to a jazz track in Protools 10 (real performers other than strings). I've finished arranging strings in VEPRo and have MIR all set up in VEPro the way I want. I am about to turn track over to mixing engineer who has VEPro and MIR but is not as familiar with how they work. I want to give him the easiest file to work with, and want to minimize risk of latency issues. He doesn't own the string libraries. I've already printed audio for all the string parts with no MIR, EQ, or other plug-ins.

Plan A: Keep my MIR setup in VEPro and run audio through VePro and back to Protools with reverb added. Mixing engineer would make any adjustments to reverb in VEPro.

Plan B: Open MIR plug-in directly in Protools. I'd like to keep VEPro in the picture in case we need to re-print strings, but otherwise mixing engineer works right in the MIR plug-in in Protools. In this situation, will my standard MIR authorization allow me to leave all my MIR settings in VEPro and also open the MIR plug-in directly in Protools (that is, run both on one computer)?

Sorry this is so long. Thanks!

If you run audio tracks only, it's more simple to run the plugin version. Otherwise you'll need to use the VE audio input plugin.

yes you can run both version at the same time on one computer.

Hi Steve, Fred is right. For raw audio tracks the plug-in version of MIR Pro is the better choice. As most of the more advanced features MIR Pro offers when used within VE Pro are aimed at the use of Vienna Instruments, you won't miss anything, but you gain easier routing and handling.

The only problem you could run into are the RAM restrictions of the 32-bit  legacy version of Pro Tools.

Kind regards,

Thank you Fred and Dietz. My experience confirms what you told me. The plug-in works like a dream, and with zero latency (after reading manual I set latency in MIR Pro preferences to zero).

Is it possible to use the plug-in to set up two difference rooms in the same session?

Thanks,

Steve

You can't set two different room with the Plugin. With VEP you can have one different room per instance.
