  • Hi Ben!

    If you have audio hardware with ASIO drivers, I strongly recommend using these ASIO drivers. In Sibelius you can set the drivers of your audio hardware in Play/Playback Devices/Audio Engine Options.

    Best,

  • Hi there,

    I do not have ASIO drivers...

    I am using M-Audio MobilePre USB which uses CoreAudio...

    (However at the moment I am using the Mac's built in output because M-Audio haven't released a driver update for 10.5.6)

    My keyboard, however, is connected directly via midi to USB (straight from the keyboard to the port on the Mac.)

    Will it work better when I can use the MobilePre? If not what can you suggest?

    Thanks,

    Ben.


  • Which latency settings do you have set now?

    Best regards,

    Maya


  • 24.35 ms.

    with the MobilePre it goes up to 27.37 ms...


  • Hi,

    I now have the MobilePre working again, but there is still a delay between when I press a note to when it actually sounds in Sibelius (which is annoying in fast passages because it sometimes skips out notes).

    This not only happens when I press down a note, but also when the piece is played back...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Ben.


  • Of how much delay are we talking here? 25 ms? 1 second?
    Do you have this delay also with other virtual instruments?

  • It's less than a second, (but I'm not sure how long) Probably 25 ms.

    It doesn't happen with the Sibelius Sounds :S

    Ben.


  • Well if its around 25 ms, then its the latency of your soundcard. If you set a lower buffer size for your sound card, you will get lower latency, but it will take more CPU power.

  • Hey thanks! That seemed to do the trick :)

    However, I don't really understand by "it will take up more CPU power"...

    Thanks,

    Ben.


  • This means, if you set the buffer size too low, you will get performance problems (crackling and stuttering playback).
