Playing Back Video on Other Computers

You can play back video on another computer to free up resources for audio and MIDI processing on your main CPU. This is useful as playback of high-resolution video can be quite demanding on the CPU.


Move video tracks to another computer.


Since all transport commands respond on the VST System Link computers, scrubbing video is possible even when it is coming from another computer.

When scrubbing, the playback on the linked systems may not be perfectly in sync. Also, there are some further restrictions when scrubbing via VST System Link:

  • Always use the system where you started scrubbing to control the scrubbing.

    Changing the scrub speed on a remote system will only change the speed on the local system.

  • You can start playback on all systems.

    This stops scrubbing and enters playback on all systems in sync.
