I am using the solo bassoon 2 extensively for the Grandfather in Peter and the Wolf. I’ve been using the beta versions and now the new release. as an au on a Mac with performer. I’ve found no clicks. I was under the impression that the problems with Logic were solved.
No worries, you were right. The clicks disappear when I set the polyphony to 4 or more.
Thanks for the tip.
The bad news, of course, is that the newbies who have no idea that this community exists will pull out their hair trying to figure out if it's their host, or their interface, speakers, etc that is creating these clicks.
The problem with changing the polyphony of a solo woodwind instrument is that it doesn't function as well as a solo instrument. There should be no clicks when polyphony is set to 1, and at least with DP, I don't get any.
Setting the polyphony to a higher value does remove the symptom (clicks) but at the loss of the tongue/slur function which only works when the polyphony is set to "1." This particular clicking problem is well known and should be fixed in the new version. I've checked it on my system (PC) and there are no clicks. Are you certain that the player updated properly? Check the version number (1.1.0.04) and the presence of the up and down arrows on the "load" button. We need to know if NI missed something in the Mac version.
Now I'm lost because I dont have a Mac (but some others of the Beta Team have). Before it was fixed by NI I could avoid the clicks also by setting very big buffers and changing the audio drivers.
Can please some other Mac users give feedback here?
