dr. key Posted December 15, 2011 Share Posted December 15, 2011 Hey, I'm on OSX LION, latest version, MS 2.2., FOCUSRITE SAFFIRE PRO 24. I've updated mainstage last saturday. A half week later, I've tested the new version on my MBP 2010 13"(dual core) with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD. Running a live-setup for my coverbands with ca. 70 patches (including EXS24-Instruments and KONTAKT PLAYER 4 (NY Grand, Mark I, A-200 and Session Strings)). Thought I'm finally having a reliable live-gear. Sorry to say, but I now have more troubles than before (on MS 2.1.3. I got frequent crashes, this seems to be solved), but: On MS 2.2. the CPU-meter shows a high base-level, ca. 30-50%, even if I'm not pressing a key! When playing instruments which worked well on MS 2.1.3, I now get crackles, audio-artefacts and a high CPU-meter around 80-100%! (Buffer-size 128 which worked perfect on MS 2.1.3). I've tried to increase the buffer size. But CPU-usage doesn't reduce significantly until choosing an unplayable buffer-size of 512. How could this be??? Who needs a new version that decreases the performance of a MBP significantly?? I'm very frustrated about that, MS 2.2 ist definitly not usable for my upcoming gigsthis weekend. Damn, I've paid a lot of money for my MBP and options, had sleepless nights for tweaking and setting everything up. Probably just like you!! Sometimes I wish i've never sold my KORG M3... For me, apple failed again with this "feature update"! Guys at apple, please update!! Or do I have to buy a new MBP, is it this what you want?
