Hi all, this is my first post and i'm very new to GPO so apologies if this is a simple one. As above my Steinway Piano sample's are distorting when i start playing quite hard, especially around the more bassier notes. I've tried increasing the DFD buffer but that doesn't seem to make a great deal of difference.
I'm on OSX 10.4.11 using Pro Tools or Standalone mode.
Hi, i don't have anything clipping. Levels are good in kontakt and pro tools, i have noticed a few other sporadic bits of distortion here and there. are there any optimal settings for kontakt, also realistically on a basic session would keeping the samples on my system drive be problematic?
Check the latency settings on your sound card. I don't use a Mac, but on the PC side those settings tend to vary on location/use/etc. depending on the sound card.
Also, which Kontakt are you using? Player 1? Player 2? Full version Kontakt 2? Kontakt 3?
I don't think keeping the samples on the system drive would be an issue. OSX is UNIX, which bases everything off of a root location. The filesystem is not based on drives, which are mounted as directories on the filesystem tree. Of course I don't use a Mac so there could be a caveat that I am not aware of.
Maybe another Mac user could help you more than I can.
Hi all, thanks for the replies but no luck as yet. Tech support have emailed me back and advised to increase buffers and watch my levels, hoever the standalone kontakt levels i always leave at the default -6dB and my Pro Tools buffers are always maxed out at 1024 samples.
It doesn't appear to make a difference if i'm in standalone or Pro Tools it's always exactly the same.
