+1 Dante, +1 Reaper, +1 Mac Mini (although we use Mac pro laptops), +1 on second drive to record to (we use Firewire 800 to external, bus powered drives). We setup a User Account on the Mac just for recording. That account is a minimalist account as far as anything else going on in the OS. We also turn off all wireless (Bluetooth, WIFI). Have recorded vast amounts of audio, one session had 50 channels (added mains, and some matrix outs and we were maxed out on channel count). We usually use to laptops for critical events (you can set up the GLD Dante to not use the secondary Dante port as a redundant port) and we also have gone to three laptops through an appropriate Ethernet switch based on the Dante requirements for a network switch.

Also, for critical events, everything (GLD, AR’s, network switch, computers) is on several UPS’s. Don’t want an accidental plug kicked out of an outlet…
