I am evaluating the standalone demo version for bass, using an external synth (Deepmind 12) and a 5-string fretless bass with piezzo pickup. Audio interface is Steinberg UR242, Windows 7, using the Steinberg ASIO driver set to 128 samples buffer size.
I would like first of all to turn off completely the bass sound, and have only the external synth sound, but can’t figure out how to do it - both are audible, and there is no way to turn the bass through the audio interface either.
Then I have some CPU spikes from time to time, which are worse when playing through the external synth, than when playing through the internal Rhodes - should be the opposite to my opinion.
Finally, even at that buffer size, I have a noticeable latency, which is far worse, than I would expect for 128 samples buffer size, but still playable. What is the difference in setting the buffer size in the “Latency” field, compared to opening the driver setting through the “Driver” button, and setting the buffer size there?
