Much better PC men that I will surely be along but two questions come to mind.GTR_RO wrote:I just purchased a collection of virtual instruments, a Garritan collection of world instruments. I plugged in my Arturia miniLab MKII keyboard and had an incredible amount of latency between pressing down the key and hearing the tone. It felt like at least 1/4 of a second. This seemed more than I experienced when I had other software working. Did I just imagine this? Does the level of latency differ with different software or gear? At one point I had latency in Cubase and Ableton Live at a manageable level and now with the Aria player, it feels unimaginable.
Drivers - there are default Windows drivers for basic sound functions in a computer. Do the various devices (audio interfaces, midi keyboards, etc.) have their own drivers? Does software offer specific drivers for accessing the code? When adjusting latency levels - are the adjustments made all about the processing elements of the CPU? I know this is a lot of information I'm trying to comprehend but it will help me (and hopefully others) with a less technical understanding of computer based music to understand what's going on under the hood.
Does the PC have an SSD as the main system 'C' drive?
Does the PC have at least 8G of ram?
If the answer to either or both is no, you might struggle forever with that large download
As the previous discussion has said, low latency is mainly in the gift of the AI and especially its drivers but if you give the PC too much to do...
