The following equipment is required for VST System Link operation:

  • 2 or more computers.

    These can be of the same type or use different operating systems – it does not matter. For example, you can link an Intel-based PC to an Apple Macintosh without problems.

  • Each computer must have audio hardware with specific ASIO drivers.

  • The audio hardware must have digital inputs and outputs.

    To be able to connect the computers, the digital connections must be compatible (i. e. the same digital formats and connection types must be available).

  • At least one digital audio cable must be available for each computer in the network.

  • A VST System Link host application must be installed on each computer.

    Any VST System Link application can connect to another.

Additionally, use of a KVM switchbox is recommended.
