Hello all, I am curious about hooking up my computers using Ethernet; interested in whether Logic 10.6 can work alongside 9.1.8?
2011 iMac i5, 2012 Mac mini i7, Motu 8pre, Kurzweil K2000, Logic 10.6.2, 9.1.8, Spitfire libraries, etc
My setup is to two MacMinis using thisiConnectMIDI2+
So the audio goes Digital, not Analog, but Digital between the two MacMinis.
Also, I just use the iConnectMIDI2+ Midi ports to talk MIDI between the two.
There's no Ethernet used in fact, Ethernet was never meant to support audio, too much data.
Copy a WAV file from one computer to another over Ethernet to see why you shouldn't use audio over Ethernet. This is a single track.
If you copy 10 WAV files, that's 10 tracks you're sending over Ethernet.
I think the iConnectMIDI2+ is discontinued, so you'd probably want to look for an similar audio interface but stay away from audio over Ethernet.
