Earlier tonight my piano suddenly felt like rubber. Disconnected.
The latency must have been somehow way higher than normal. Why?
I opened Kontakt's audio control panel and I saw this:
512 buffer with 12.5 msec latency. No wonder the keys felt like rubber.
So I clicked "ASIO Config" and I saw this:
That's looked wrong. There were no controls to set the buffer size. The controls used to be there, but they were gone. Why?(Also ... why did they rename this "Universal Control". Is Presonus taking control of me or of my piano? Do they think that "all your piano are belong to us?")
A quick hop to Presonus.com revealed the latest driver for this Audiobox USB interface.
Downloaded. Installed just the Audiobox ASIO driver. It told me to reboot.
NO CHANGE !?
Hmmm ... Reinstall, but this time choose all the options, included newer Presonus interfaces that I don't even have. No reboot required.
I re-opened Kontakt's audio control panel and clicked "ASIO Config" again, and I saw this:
The controls had returned. The buffer was set to 512, so I changed it to 64 as pictured above.
I closed Universal Control and the Kontakt control panel then showed this:
Back to 2.5 msec latency. S'good.
So why did my buffer controls disappear?
