Hi Eric. I do not play keyboards so I use a Godin Synth Access guitar and the Axon AX100MkII guitar to MIDI converter. The plan was to use this setup write into Sibelius 5 and also compose filmtrack type material. I run Pro Tools 7 in an Intel Mac Pro Quad 2.66GHz with 2 Gig of memory.
I was told by the salesman that Atmosphere would run great in my setup, all I had to do was download the wrapper. So I purchased it at the original price and had all kinds of problems, it made Pro Tools very unstable, lot's of crashes...just poor performance. I was so bummed because the sounds were just gorgeous.
So I took it back and Illio approved a refund.I put my refund away and swore I would get Omnisphere as soon as it came out in a years time. I bought mine on release day and signed up for a seminar you are doing. I have not opened it yet, I am unsure whether I will face similar issues.
My questions are.....can I expect better performance all around from Omnisphere, especially in the area of how hard it taxes the computer?
Does it perform well in Pro Tools? Have you done any testing using guitar synths?
What would happen before was I would get such severe latency I would have to reduce the Pro Tools hardware buffer down to 256 which would then affect the ability of Atmosphere to perform well. I would get errors and crashes. I would also have to set the amount of voices down to 5 or 6 or I would get noises.
I am still expecting latency with the Axon...I am hoping with Omnisphere redesigned completely for Universal Binary that it will be running at a more efficient level in general.Unforunately all guitar synths have latency so I am stuck there.
So other than learn how to play the keyboards, do you have any thoughts?
Sorry for the long winded post and thanks.
