Apologies if I missed a post about this, but everything I've found in the forums and by searching the web was either too old to be useful (FX teleport, netsend~) or wasn't a workable solution (AuNetSend for example).
I'm looking to use an older Macbook Pro to do some effects processing in Max on audio coming from a more recent Macbook Pro running Mainstage. Currently, I run all of this on a single laptop using Rogue Amoeba's Loopback to send audio between Mainstage and Max.
I'd like to expand the processing power for live sets by separating the apps on to two laptops, but don't know how to best transfer the audio and keep things in sync. Obviously I could rig ADAT or MADI interfaces on each laptop and connect a bunch of cables between the two. I had hoped that I could find some software or MacOS support for audio over IP and use a thunderbolt cable or Ethernet cable to connect the two machines.
I'm aware of Dante Via, which I tried but couldn't get to work for this setup. Maybe there is a piece of Dante or AVB hardware that can join two (or more) Macs via Ethernet in this way? I'm not concerned right now with analog I/O being a part of this.
This seems like something Max tinkerers would be doing on the regular—so it surprises me to be finding so little that supports this scenario. Hopefully I'm, just not searching for the right terms?
Many thanks in advance for any help or advice!
