MERGING HAPI AND LATENCY WITH VST/AU INSTRUMENTS

Postby fafalio » Mon Mar 30, 2015 14:09

Hello!
I would like to know something about Hapi about latency in a native scenario with software like ableton live and cubase.
A) if i use VST instruments like Vienna, that we know is very heavy, what could be the latency in ms that i could ear?
B) if i record audio with heavy DSP in real time, what could be the latency in ms that i could ear?
I use last generation mac book pro I7 with SSD. So i'm considering core audio.

I ask this because now i m using RME inerfaces. I don t like too much the converters but the latency is great. is hapi' latency similar?

Alessandro, thanks.

hi Alessandro,
past versions of Pyramix did not support VSTi or MIDI at all. i recommend you look into this further before trying to use Pyramix for these purposes. it's a great system for recording, editing, mixing, post, etc. i believe the philosophy is that other software (like the ones you mention) are more suited to MIDI and virtual instruments.
cheers,

oops, sorry. you may want to post this in the hardware forum instead of the Pyramix Native forum.

No one have made a test about latency with native set up?

Anyone have tested it? Hapi was designed for recording and mastering or can also manage heavy VST intruments and sample library?
