I can't play a software instrument with an external MIDI controller without extreme latency. This is ridiculous.
I have a Mac Pro. I have a UAD Apollo quad on FW800. I have Live Suite 8.4.2 I've been using Live since version 7.
I can not use Roland V drums to trigger sounds of either a drum rack or a third party drum synth (EZ Drummer) without massive latency. The buffers are set to 128, but it doesn't matter; the latency is huge. This is discouraging.
I have an Akai MPK25 that works okay, but the Roalnd V-drums have HUGE latency just for the MIDI data.
I tried the same set up in Logic X and it worked flawlessly. I don't like Logic. I prefer Ableton, but this MIDI latency is such a debilitating issue. I'm at my wits end and am considering abandoning Ableton. This poor MIDI performance and awful support are the reason I have not upgraded to version 9 of Live.
Has anyone figured out why Ableton sucks so bad with external MIDI controllers? Any help?
