Recording simultaneously on two seperate computers?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First post from me.

I've been using Samplitude for a number of years now, and would like to thank Kraznet on his great tutorials on a fantastic piece of software.

What I'm trying to work out is, how to record on two separate computers simultaneously.

My scenario is, I have one tower PC over at the bands rehearsal room running ProX3 with a Delta 1010lt sound card with 8 audio inputs, I've also got a laptop running ProX3 which I use with a Focusrite  scarlett 2i2. What I'm trying to achieve is to record drums on the 8 tracks of the Delta AND record two guide guitar tracks on the laptop at the same time. Then I would like to export the two tracks from the laptop into the samplitude session on the tower PC and hope it syncs up in time.

Is there a way of doing this? as I don't really want to buy another audio interface with more inputs.

Cheers

Cass.

Unfortunately it seems the Focusrite 2i2 doesn't allow for Clock sync, either as a Master or a Slave.
It would be highly advisable to have both interfaces synced to the same clock, otherwise your recordings will be out of sync with each other.

Thanks for you reply resolectric. Yeah, that's what i thought about the focusrite, just wondered if if was possible to sync over MIDI or USB?

syncing with a clock is a good advice.

The other thing is the audio streaming and splitting. Thought about Dante or AVB networking and a gigabit converter? have a look to cisco company for that.

audio networking is a special field, though, which needs good advice for making wise investments.

Dante is common at the moment causing some liscensing costs, AVB is a norm which does not cause further costs with liscensing, but is not too wide spread in the audio community.

Once you managed the conversion of a audio stream on your internal networking system, things become pretty easy connecting wise. You need a audio interface for that, which supports a networking norm. Usually you do it from there with Ethernet connections.

I figure it out myself at the moment for slaving additional machines. so far my experience. I tend to walk the AVB route.
