I\'m having a GPO problem that I could use some feedback on from other users.
When I\'m using just one instrument, everything is super. I can run GPO at 2ms latency with no issue whatsoever. Most of the time, I do playback through GPO studio in Sibelius. Here are the problems:
1) My load times in the Kontakt player are horrendous (If I\'m loading 20 instruments, it takes about 5 minutes to load).
2) In order to play back those instruments without popping and clicking, I have to raise the latency to at least 100ms.
3) Even when I\'m not touching or playing a note, the CPU usage meter on Kontakt is over 50%.
My system is a 2.4 Ghz P4, XP Home, 1.25 GB DDR, and a 160GB ATA133 Maxtor HD. Sound card is the EMU 1010M.
Maybe I\'m expecting more than I should from GPO studio. Should I only expect low latency from VST instruments, which I haven\'t tried yet?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Hmm...the ambience change didn\'t really help. I could still sit at over 80%CPU load with nothing happening. I alleviated this somewhat by changing the registry setting that marks memory as non pageable. Load times are much better now. But I still have the latency problems, and even right now, when I\'m clearly typing and not playing, the Kontakt player says my CPU is at 34%. Since I\'m not playing, what is it doing?
I read something about VIA chipsets causing this type of problem yesterday, and I do have a VIA chipset. Has anyone else had problems because of that?
