I have a macbook pro, and was wondering if using that as a master computer to control the mini as a slave would improve processing to a noticeable extent. 

The mac mini is a late 2012 2.3 GHz Intel Quad Core Core i7 with 16 gb of ram, a 480 gb ssd, and a 1tb sshd. The macbook pro is a late 2011 duo core i7 with 4gb of ram, and a basic 5200 rpm hard drive. 

Given these specs, would the macbook pro be able to control the mac mini via vienna ensemble pro and significantly make processing more efficient for virtual instruments? The virtual instruments I have are Cinesamples stuff and Omnisphere. 

Seeing that the slave computer is the one holding the instruments, and the master (macbook) would be the one simply modifying midi data in the daw, will it not be a problem if the master's specs are relatively basic (only 4gb ram, basic hd, etc)?
