M1 Mac mini Performance mode with Maschine Vst & Host applications + Xreal glasses
With the advent of the XReal glasses, and having the ability to now tether your viewing experience to multi monitors, using multiple music applications, is entirely a possibility..
This advancement multi monitor support via Xreal glasses in my view will make the standalone models of the Maschine+ or Ableton push 3... useful but limited
I'm personally envisaging...
m1 Mac mini 16gb (big Sur 11.2.3)
X2 Maschine jam controllers
Xreal glasses tethered to m1 Mac mini
as a means of creating a fully functional multi display/multi application
applications ranging from Maschine/Reaper/VirtualDJfree/Loopy pro/Ableton live/Remixlive all running in the m1 Mac mini....
currently I can run a iPad Air 1 as a default monitor without any need for a wireless network, so mobility is a thing with this the Yam Air iPad application and from my testing I can also use a secondary iPad Air 1 in tethered mode to give me a dual display...
so basically x2 Ipad air running alongside the m1 Mac mini!!
add a 422WH battery source and everything can be powered for up to 6-7 hours
Having Xreal glasses tethered to a m1 Mac mini will enhance the size of the displays to keep track of everything & will eliminate one of the iPad air's in my current setup , this is a Giant step forward when you know how to integrate audio applications on the m1 mac's!!
the beauty of the Xreals is the fact you can see through the glasses to see your midi controllers & see your screens simultaneously... this is huge in my view!!
I have tried a quest 2 to see how practical it would be.... as the quest 2 had passthrough & with the Immersive app you could do multi monitor... however a connection to the immersive app needs a internet connection, which is a limitation///
so while the quest 2 worked... practically speaking it is not ideal... on the other hand Xreal is the direction forward(I'm guessing here)... with respect to performances and multiple music application...
if anyone has experience with Xreal glasses and m1 Macs... I'd love to hear of your experiences as I'm still on the fence about purchasing one re music performance!!
