Hello all, is there a particular DAW that most easily integrates with the keylab88? I would appreciate any recommendations for someone who is replacing an all-in-one workstation keyboard with a controller+laptop and hasnt invested in any DAW yet.
Being you tried this on two different computers I submit that your comparison is invalid UNLESS they both had everything the same save for amount of ram. Same cpu, same audio I/O, same version of operating system, etc.
The difference between 8 gig and 48 gig in standalone won't affect performance - it can't. Remember that Yosemite takes all memory that isn't being used for itself, unlike previous versions of OSX.
You shouldn't have to close a plugin gui for any daw work smoothly. To do so indicates poor programming on the part of the plugin developer. Most of the time one wants to have a plugin gui open, especially a synth, if one wants to or needs to make changes while playing - it's that simple.
Virtual instruments have never liked Pro Tools, whatever the version.I know standalone and plugin versions like aax64 in PT work differently. No problem there. What I was trying to correct was the assertion that buffer setting in PT and ram are related and they aren't.

Maybe some crossed wires here in that sometimes "we" talk about standalone and the AAX (or whatever other flavour of plug) in the same thread, and they work differently.
RAM affects the standalone and i've tested it, and obviously the more you have the better. I found significant differences with the intel macs, one with 8Gb and one with 48Gb - But that goes without saying, right? With 8Gb of RAM i found i could not really play it without it cracking or freezing under about 512, although that still has issues. Increasing to 1024 solved that. With the 48Gb machine, I could happily go to 32 and it not affect the sound.
As far as the plug in inside a DAW, there's so many things that affect it. Buffer, playback settings, track count, Core count, other plugs, voices, delay compensation, even having the bloody plug in GUI open.
Again, with the same two machines I had totally different experiences with the exact same set up of Pro Tools running the same session.
Playback / Mixing you can easily take it to 1024 and be happy that you are going to play everything fine, I've never had issues there. Recording and trying to get decent latency is different.
From my tests, the main reason this is so is due to having the GUI open, closing the plug GUI when playing results is a far smoother experience.
None of those synth (Matrix Vox Solina) are listed in any preset of Analog Lab ?!
Lets' try something else then :
- Copy the file Labo2.db located in library/Arturia/AnalogLab and paste it in a safe place of your choice. In this file is stored all your user presets. If you don't have any users preset ignore this step.
- Delete AnalogLab folder in library/Arturia/AnalogLab
- Run AnalogLab and check if you can load any Matrix, Vox or Solina preset.
- Close Analog Lab and replace the Labo2.db file you copied before
You should be able to open any presets of Matrix Vox and Solina even if you don't have license for them you are right.I trashed the prefs and that didn't help; still the same problems.
Could you please try to remove all the .pref files in your :
Could you please check that you have a Matrix Vox and Solina folder in :
