I´m currently running a Lenovo Miix 720 with an i7 and 16GB which I hoped is a decent system to run Keyscape plus like one or two additional plugins in one rackspace. This setup is running okay with between 10-20% CPU usage and aboz 8GB Ram used.
Now I was trying to add another Instrument in parallel (the B5 organ v2) and I just get too many glitches.
My ASIO interface is running at 160 samples buffer sze right now and the windows 10 system is tweeked quiet extensively to create a constant audio stream. So I´m not sure what I can improve anymore and I think that this is just not the right hardware to go on stage. I was able to do way more with my old 2010 DAW I used in the studio.
Which kind of hardware do you guys use? I never had a Macbook for instance. Maybe MacOS is just better than a Windows based system to do real time audio on notebook hardware. I don´t know. Maybe one of you guys also made a switch from PC to Mac hardware.
I have professional experience for about 20 years of music production on PC based systems but never had a side by side comparisson between mac and PC. Maybe they can handle low latency audio simply better by default.
Generally I want to run Keyscape or Omnisphere plus the B5 v2 and 2 plugins in one rackspace with a latency roudtrip of about 5ms to keep it really playable.
Any advice is welcome.
