VM in standalone mode
Midi from Octatrack
Mac OSX

When using Plug-in Host and Mini Plug-in host I am getting stutters and crackles when using various plugins, NI massive, FM8, Absynth, Kontakt, Arturia Synclaver V, U-he Zebra CM. These sometime these can occur just occasionally and sometime more frequently. I have not worked out a pattern. I have tried AU and VST version of FM8 and Massive.

Theo,

Does it crackle or stutter when using in a DAW? Make sure to use the correct audio driver model. Go to your Settings and click on Audio/MIDI.

Please make sure to choose the correct driver model, sample rate, buffer size, etc. Let us know if that helps.

<t>Tested with Ableton (10.1), Logic (10.4.4.), Reason (10.4.4) ands standalone<br/>
Using 1 - 3 instance of Plug-In host module<br/>
<br/>
Standalone had the occasional stutter and crackle<br/>
Live and Reason had less crackles<br/>
Logic had almost no crackles <br/>
(My impression was that AU components and less crackles but that is very subjective.)

FIXED: An installation of Mac OSX 10.14 from 10.13 has eliminated the crackles.
I have tested this quickly with 3 instances of the Plug-in Host module running Arturia Buchla V (AU) , Kontakt 6 (VST) and Reaktor 6 (VST)
