Hi Joe,

SSL Duende
This also looks interesting. It is a VST plugins external host, basically a small rackmount computer that you connect to your DAW via USB, and that hosts your VST plugins, freeing your computer processor/RAM.

I'm sure there are other things like that, but i'm no expert in plugins (i mix in a big analog desk, so those are pretty useless), so other people will tell you i hope!

Hope this helps anyway...

Check out the Focusrite Liquid Mix and Liquid Mix 16 - great sounding boxes with some pretty good emulations, and the 16 is pretty cheap

I have a LiquidMix processor. Have to say it sounds good, the emulations are pretty nice. But I had some issues with the hardware... Maybe I've just been unlucky with my unit. :scratch:
For a portable mixing solution is defintly OK.

Cheers,
Marco

The firewire controller on my LiquiMix just burned, it took 6 months for the assistence to find this out :huh:

I'm using it with my PowerBookG4 now, as a part of my portable setup.

Cheers,
Marco

I think that's more of a firewire issue than a liquid mix issue - firewire doesn't handle hot plugging very well, so if you plug or unplug while its on it can fry something...
