Best ways of reducing CPU load

Hey guys, recently my CPU load has been going overboard, and as expeccted my sound is going crazy with stuttering and pops and what not. I think it's because I've recently started using Native Instruments Plug ins like Kontakt and Massive. What are the best ways of reducing CPU load?

Stuttering synths in this track

Hey guys,

Does anyone know of any good video tutorials that could help me re-create some of the stuttering synth sounds in the latter half of the track in this video?

Re: Audio interface or no audio interface?

But I feel the crackling improves when I raise the buffer to 512+. Is it bad to use such a high buffer ?

Re: Audio interface or no audio interface?

I've already increased my latency to 512 samples. I still get the crackling noise though. Is it safe to go higher than this? Is there any disadvantage to doing so?

Re: Audio interface or no audio interface?

Hey thanks for the replies

1) Which setting is the 'buffer'. It doesn't say buffer anywhere in my fast track properties

2) What does ASIO4All do?

Re: Audio interface or no audio interface?

Hey thanks so much for your reply. I'm a bit confused. When I go to my Fast Track Pro properties, the 3 tabs are 'Bandwith', 'Latency' and 'About'. Under Bandwith, I can change either the Sample rate (44.1, 48, 88.2, 96) or the Sample depth (16 or 24). Under Latency, I can change the slider that goe...

Audio interface or no audio interface?

Hey guys, I've got a Novation Impulse 49 hooked up to Ableton. Listen to it through an M-audio Fast Track Pro audio interface, but when I use it, I tend to get crackles. Do you guys use an audio interface? Or do most people just use their laptops built in-sound card to listen to their work? When I u...

High hats in this song?

Around 30 seconds into this song, he gets the high hats going really fast. How does he do it? Even when I set my drum rack grids to 1/32, it doesnt sound that fluid, or clean. The hi-hats still sound stuttered and unnatural. Also, is it possible to get hi-hats/other percussion going really fast like...

When released, theres plenty of sustain, and the pedal needs to be pressed again in order to get rid of the sustain. I tried flicking the swi...
