I am having a problem with Trilogy and Nuendo. Trilogy is affected by the buffer settings during normal playback of MIDI tracks in Nuendo. In other words, Trilogy is always playing behind all the other instruments. If I kick the buffers up to maximum (8192), this problem is very obvious because Trilogy is playing 186 ms behind all the other instruments (including virtual instruments). Reducing the buffer size masks the problem somewhat. For instance, a setting of 1024 causes Trilogy to play 23 ms late.
No other plugin exhibits this behavior, so that would suggest it could be a Trilogy issue. However, Trilogy does not do this in any other software but Nuendo. It works fine in Cubase VST, SX1 and SX2 (I don't have SX3). It does behave this way in both Nuendo 2 & 3, which suggests it could be a Nuendo problem.
I realize, of course, that it could be system specific - something unique to my system. To reduce that possiblity, I flashed my BIOS with the latest update, shuffled the cards into new slots, and forced the motherboard to reassign all the IRQs. I formatted the hard drive, reinstalled Windows XP Pro and the latest AMD chipset driver. Then I installed Nuendo and Trilogy. Trilogy still plays late.
My system is:
MSI K7D server motherboard with dual Athlon 2.4s / AMD chipset
2 RME 9652 HDSP cards into Apogee DA and AD 16 channel converters
wordclocked with an Aardsync II
4 gigs of RAM
480 gigs split between two RAID arrays (audio and software)
Matrox video pushing dual monitors
If anyone can duplicate this problem, I'd really appreciate it. The way to test it is to set your buffers really high, then create a few measures of quarter notes in Nuendo. Route the channel to Trilogy and turn on the click.
If anyone can duplicate this issue, please let me know...
