audio latency using Live with real instruments
I use Live as a combination of mixer and plug-in host for several real instruments and my vocals, as well as playing loops, samples and backings, and also to run video in from time to time.
I have noticed that as my set has expanded in complexity, the audio latency has got worse, to the point where I now feel like I'm playing out of time in fast bits.
Will this improve if I upgrade my RAM? I'm currently running a 2-year-old MacBook Pro 13 with 4G of RAM, using an MBox 2 Pro as sound card. I also run a Korg NanoKontrol to run the mixer and a Softstep to control effects and trigger loops etc.
The sounds are all working wonderfully. I use a mixture of plugins including Guitar Rig, Waves GT Stomp, NI B4fx and some of the built-in Ableton ones.
The only problem is this latency.
Any ideas will be most welcome!
