Not made the jump to VEP 6 yet as there seems to be some teething problems so have stuck with VEP 5. If possible could someone comment on how best to setup Kontakt 5 within VEP 5? I'm trying to find the best workflow with VEP 5 on the Mac Pro 1,1 (Upgraded dual 3Ghz CPU) connecting to Mac Pro 5,1 12 core 3.46 Ghz running Cubase Pro 9.
In Kontakt i currently have MultiProcessor Support 'Off' as i know from previous experience when running it in Cubase Pro, that the host CPU performance suffers. Also i have the Instrument preload buffer option activated with a 30kb setting. Should i also set VEP to the highest number of threads per instance (8) with VEP vst set at 4 buffers? The reason i ask is that VEP 5 is showing very high CPU usage of around 80% when only running a piano and a string quartet mock up. Should ad that i've tried a number of different combinations and this seems to stress the CPU the least but it still seems very high?
Thanks in advance.
