OK guys, thanks in advance.Basically I have 2 main issues. I am willing to buy whatever I have to buy in order to fix these Issues, I just want to make sure im spending $ on the right things.1 = Latency. I can not trigger audio samples via midi without a noticable amount of latency (yes i've tried adjusting the audio buffer/latency compensation settings). For instance, in reason i can't trigger drums without being horribly off beat lol.Issue 2 after I give my setup:Dell Dimension 8250 512 Ram, plenty of HD space.Midiman USB MIDISPORT 8x8/sDigi 001 RackProtools 5.3.1 and the Wave Drivers that go with it.Now, the 2nd issue is not being able to use certain plugins in real time with Protools such as autotune, etc. I tried to upgrade to a newer version of Protools/ASIO drivers but then I encountered all sorts of new problems like Cakewalk was not recognizing the sound card/drivers at all.. and my internet browser audio would conk out after a few seconds.Any help would really be appreciated!!! LIke i said, i'd be willing to buy some new stuff... But for instance.. I dont want to go buy a new computer if the Digi001 is the real problem.. Or vice versa you know?Thank you!!-Elitewww.elitethatsme.com
so it seems the consensus is more RAM. To answer some questions im not sure about the processor speed i'll check it when I get home tonight, the midi interface is connected via USB and then the keyboard is connected to the interface via midi cable.Two qestions:1. Will a simple ram upgrade do it? Or is the processor more of a contributer to latency.2. Is there a real need to upgrade my digi001? If i do upgrade my computer I'd rather not have to upgrade both. Unless it's just somethin like add more RAM + upgrade digi01. you know?
the plug-in thing is less of an issue. Its more the Latency on Midi triggering samples in reason that is a huge issue for me... makes it impossible to do a drum pattern with my keyboard... tired of drawing out drum patterns with the mouse you know? lol
my processor is a pentium 4 2.40ghzthe plug-in thing is less of an issue. Its more the Latency on Midi triggering samples in reason that is a huge issue for me... makes it impossible to do a drum pattern with my keyboard... tired of drawing out drum patterns with the mouse you know? lolas for why I would want to use autotune live.. cuz its the best way to use it!!!! so great for coming up with melodies, espeically ifu cant sing! I dont use it tpain style but its a great way to just come up with a melody, using your voice as an instrument
