I am having difficulties making a free of clicks and pop sound in gig performer.
I am using kontakt 6 ver 2.2 as my main source of sounds.
I tried uploading 8 instances of kontakt, 4 of them are loaded with spitfire chamber strings (violin 1 violin 2 viola cello) and 4 more with Berlin woodwind ( flute 1, flute 2, clarinet and bassoon) all of them using the legato patch.
That’s a total of 8 instruments.
Playing more then 1 note at the same time couses intense pops and crack sounds.
Fast runs make instruments to get stuck. I can reset it only by deleting gig performer.
As a reference I used cubase10.5 as a vst host and loaded the same instruments:
No cracks is heard even when 8 notes are played simultaneously .
No problems playing fast runs.
I tried this on 2 computers:
1: desktop, windows 7 64 bits, 32 GB ram, 500GB SSD system drive,libraries on external 7200 HD on USB 3, I7 processor, Audio card: RME fire face 800, optimized for audio performance, All driver Updated
2: Laptop, windows 10 64 bits, 32 GB Ram, I9,1TB SSD system disc, libraries on external SSD disc over USB C (3.1), Audio card: Presonus studio 1824C.
Both computers are audio optimized ( including power saver schemes , performance profiles etc) ,and all drivers have been updated.
I use 44.1 Khz sampling rate and a 512 samples buffer size.
Task manager shows about 30% of memory usage and about 9% of CPU load on laptop.
The result is always the same and reproducible.
I would appreciate very much any help suggestions.
Thanks so much
