Just Bought !
- I got audio dropouts with a few instances when turning any knob (@1024 , Reaper shows 35 , 40 percent realtime cpu ) GR meter doesn't work most of the time here.
I don't have the filters working with the instance on my Master bus. (Trial version , haven't installed official release yet ...)
- SHMOD reacts not as obvious as with previous Plugins here.
Besides these small bugs, SAND is Amazing , Congrats Giancarlo and Co !
i used to get audio dropouts often in Reaper with high latency plugins on big bus groups or master
even when my CPU hit was low
the problem didn't start before i was adding the big bus groups so i don't know why Reaper is doing this
it helped turning up the anticipated effects in the Reaper settings for me about 300ms for 512 latency and 400 for 1024 latency
this may differ from different audio cards
if that doesn't help enough or at all
also try the ZL version for buses and master
for me that also helps getting rid of audio dropouts a lot
i have heard reports from some users that the ZL versions of the Acquas don't eat that much extra CPU when the latency in the DAW or Audio interface is set high
i have not compared ZL and the regular version of Sand
But im using the ZL version now all the time
i don't think i need to use ZL version on regular tracks though
but my recent mixing project has crashed quite a few times already so i play it on the safe side with this particular song LOL
it seems very stable now
im going to try ZL only for buses and master on the next song and see what happens.
right now using Sand ZL, no dropouts at all
