AudioGridder is a network bridge for Audio and MIDI, that allows you to offload the DSP processing of audio plugins to remote computers running OS X or Windows. This can come in handy when mixing complex projects or running CPU intensive instruments for instance. AudioGridder comes with a plugin and a server and supports VST2, VST3 and AudioUnit plugin formats. Plugins can be hosted and accessed across the network: simply run the AudioGridder server on a remote machine and connect your DAW using the AudioGridder plugin. This allows you to add remote insert chains or instruments into your DAW's signal paths. The DSP code of the loaded remote plugins will be executed on the remote machine and the remote plugin UI's will be streamed over the wire. With AudioGridder you get an experience very close to hosting the plugins directly in your DAW but not using your local CPU.

This is such a brilliant solution! Looking forward to a Windows version so that Mac and Windows systems can be used in parallel. Thank you so much for creating such an amazing tool.

It's very promising and already works well to some extend. I think this will be the tool of my choice.

VST is installed on the server. You can access it with the DAW plugin.

So I just had a glance at your homepage as well as the github profile but I am not sure: does this mean I can run the server on mixed platforms (e.g. one Mac, one Windows machine) and use those on a Mac DAW with the plugin? Like having a "Windows Outboard" in a Mac (or Linux for that matter) DAW?

Yes you can. You can also access AU plugins running on a Mac server from a DAW running on Windows or Linux.

When I realized that SoundGrid system was only proprietary at the software level and that the machines were just custom made intel workstations, I became most excited about the prospect of building out my own DSP network. However, I was shocked that there wasn't any soundgrid alternatives commercially available, but a double shocker once I tracked down AudioGribber discussions deep into a pc audio forum where they speak so technical, It might as well be klingon!

I am most thankful for this being opensourced as this will enable so many within the music creator community access to a tool and solution to overcome the financial barrier to acquiring current industry grade workstations. i APPLAUD this effort!.

just discovered this awesome tool. quite stable (only a few GUI things depending on the VST used) but nothing serious.

thanks for your time and effort to offer this for free.

will definitely donate as long as I use it.

will there maybe be an option (if the Server is not available) to load the actual VST in the plugin, to not be always relying on an available server?
Also it would be possible to host the Server on a multi core machine on the same computer (maybe in a VM) to offload processing from the DAW's threads.
