Sorry if this has been asked before, but the search function ignores "virtual" saying it's too common of a term... and I couldn't find any relevant results using other keywords.
I have a very powerful PC (top i7, tons of RAM, SSD,...) that can run several virtual machines at the same time. When I used to produce music at home about 10 years ago I had a dedicated DAW, but today with the dramatic evolution in virtualization it seems really redundant...
So I'm considering purchasing the latest Cubase, but I want to avoid buying a second PC just for it, and I don't want to run it on the main PC as the family has access to it and I'm afraid they screw something up. Questions:
- Would the latest Cubase work on a VMWare virtual machine (or others), at least in terms of USB dongle?
- Does anyone have experience with such a setting?
- Any hints on how a decent sound card (like an Audiophile 2496) would perform in a VM?
- In short, any clues if anything virtual could work at all.
Thanks a lot in advance,
