Ultimate Guide to a Multi Computer Kontakt Setup

The Ultimate Guide to a Multi-Computer Kontakt Composer Setup

I got an overwhelming response to my long-form video called Orchestration Secrets from Star Wars, in which I methodically sequenced the first two pages of the Star Wars suite by John Williams into the computer using my large orchestral template. Many of the questions I received related to my setup and how I had such a large orchestra at my fingertips.

In response to those questions, I made a new video which talks about the technical details behind my setup, including how Kontakt and Vienna Ensemble Pro work together, how the computers were built, configured, and connected, and how any composer who wants a similar setup can acquire one.

Me and the @scoringarts crew with @JBealMusic ( #houseofcards #monk composer) after he shared some amazing projects he's been working on. Jeff is a true inspiration and has an instinctive feel for drama and film noir. https://t.co/L7mtOUaCZJ daviddas photo

Composers/studio cats: if configuring a new Mac, is there any reason to opt for the more expensive 10Gb ethernet as opposed to gigabit ethernet? I can't think of one, but want to be sure I'm not overlooking something.
