So...connecting 2 sound cards via ADAT is ok I'm assuming?

Yes, one can and one does, on a regular basis! Doing so also means you can cross the boundaries of proprietary operating systems and integrate e.g. Linux sound synthesis into Cubase, or pull stuff off ancient hardware MIDI sequencers, transfer archive material from things like Dr. T's KCS (the Amiga version, just to make it challenging) and all sorts of fun such as some of the the algorithmic composition applications written for the Atari ST back in the day.Steve Fogal wrote:Can't one just simply use a 2nd computer in the exact same way you'd use ANY piece of outboard midi gear?

You don't need vstack, VST system link. Use any host on the slave, connect the two machines via midi/audio and off you go with your new external sound canvas
