IM-Transp buffer not small enough

Author 2 Subscribed Users |

IM-Transp & IM-SimpleTransp don’t have small enough buffer (“window”) choices.
The smallest, 512 samples, is still causing too much latency in live-performance with percussive material.

I am running my system on very low buffer without any problems.
I was looking at the Max patches to see if I could modify the “window” options, but haven’t been able to locate the module/ settings yet.

Why is 512 the lowest setting allowed?
Will lower ones work if I modify the device patch?

I modified the patch, and it works now without audible latency (system buffer: 48 samples, device buffer: 96 samples).
But CPU-load is quite a bit higher (~50% on Live’s meter).

Just a quick remark about Super VP include in TRANSP , This technology is not a reel real time object, the latency can be important depending of your settings. this is why we made this differents limited windows presets …. just to limit CPU usage.
Sorry for this …. and hope you are satisfy with Ircamax Collection 1.
A future Collection 2 will be released by Ableton at the end of November 2015 with other technologies, like Modalys, Note tracker, Spych harmonizer etc…

All the best
