Default Kontakt 2 + RTAS = Glitches and Crackles.

Note: Cross posted in LE Forum

Hi Guys,

I've done a search and seen a few mentions of this and wondering if anyone has found the cause? Or maybe a workaround?

I haven't tried Kontakt out on my TDM system yet but my LE set-up at home (Mac G5 Dual 2.7, 4g RAM) starts sputtering with just two sounds layered. And this is at a 1028 Buffer.

Funny thing is that I get a crash if I try to go up to 2048 (or whatever it is...)

I'm all updated etc.

Hmmm. Not very fun.

Default Re: Kontakt 2 + RTAS = Glitches and Crackles.

I found a couple of solutions for this. You obviously have enough ram in your machine, so make sure that the DFD voice count allows for the amount of voices you are using, but is also not set too high so that you have too much memory allocated to Kontakt. (These are all options accesible in the Kontakt options menu.)

Also, try checking the samples themselves in the mapping editor portion of Konakt. I've found that especially with converted samples, there is often a click because the sample is being cut off somewhere that there is not a zero cross point in the sample waveform. I've gotten around this by replacing the amp envelope of that sample zone/group.

For some reason, I find that a setting of 512 samples for my HW buffer size works that best. Couldn't tell you why. Perhaps kontakt has trouble initiating when pt takes longer to load memory into the buffer.

Hope this helps
