Gutted. I was so happy about taking advantage of Scarbee's recent half-price sale and snapping up the VKFX cheap. Looking forward to running them on my live rig to further beautify his beautiful Rhodes and Wurly samples.
Install the VST dll - all fine. Register it in the VST plugin manager - fine. Load it into the slot pertaining to the Rhodes - fine.
Go to play it, and the latency is like nothing I've ever heard before!
It's set at 2048 samples, which gives me 43ms! And I can't work out a way to change it. How is one seriously expected to play like this?
I'm using an Esi Waveterminal 192L soundcard, and the card's latency is set to 512 samples. Is Giga's plugin latency automatically 4 x the card latency? (and if so, why so much?) Or is the figure of 2048 set by some other factor?
I suppose I could experiment with getting the card latency down to the absolute minimum, so that Giga's is just bearable, but I don't want to. This is a live gigging system, and I need to put stability above everything. As it stands at the moment it's snappy enough but well solid too - I don't particularly feel like pushing everything else to the brink (I run other programs on it as well) just for the sake of Giga's plugin implementation.
This is crazy. Support for VST plugins was touted as one of the great advantages of Giga 3. Did they just forget to mention that they would be absolutely unplayable? Or is there something else I can do about it?
